If you’ve ever wondered if certain foods you are eating might be causing stress to your body, this is a great option to finally get some answers. Some people, when eating foods they are sensitive to, get digestive stress that is easy to correlate with a particular food. Other times, it’s not so easy to pinpoint because the reactions are delayed or are not digestive in nature. Some people may get brain fog, joint pain, headaches, low energy, poor recovery, skin rashes, anxiety, or a host of other delayed responses relating to the food and/or added chemicals in the food.
Below we offer 2 types of food sensitivity testing: basic or comprehensive. For either test you choose, SportFuel will set you up with a requisition and send a kit via the mail so that you may get your blood drawn in a local lab, and in some states, a mobile phlebotomist can be arranged for an additional charge. (Please let us know if you’re interested in this option.) After filling out brief forms and completing your draw, you’ll meet virtually with a SportFuel nutritionist to review your lab results and recommended next steps.
Basic Food Sensitivity
Per Vibrant America Lab, “The Wheat Zoomer aids in the specific recognition of antibodies to wheat peptides – including gluten and non-gluten components, along with antibodies that indicate the presence of intestinal permeability. It is also a highly sensitive peptide-based array designed to detect autoimmune reactions to gluten.” We always include the Wheat Zoomer because it includes various markers for for intestinal barrier function and permeability.
