How it works:

1. A blood sample is drawn and sent to the lab on the same day

2. The lab divides the sample into 150 equal units plus control samples.

3. Each sample is then analyzed in sequence and compared to the patients own control samples to check for any mediator release from the cells regardless of cell class or mechanism.  

4. The degree of reactivity to the food substance is determined by the degree of change in liquids to solids ratio

5. A specific elimination diet is then developed to match your results

6. Once lab results come in, you will initially be educated to eat only the least reactive of the Non-reactive foods

7. Slowly, we will reintroduce new Non-reactive foods

8. Finally, you will be advised to avoid all Moderately Reactive and Highly Reactive foods

Keys to Success:

  • To Start: Symptoms must be severe enough to affect quality of life

  • You must be motivated to make life-long dietary changes

  • Having a dietitian who can answer questions and provide support

  • Being committed to nutrition appointments (every 2-6 weeks depending on level of care required). 

Will my insurance cover it?

Unfortunately, insurance will not cover the MRT Test. 
However, your insurance may cover the counseling with the dietitian, though. 
If that is the case, you may benefit from a discount on the above prices.
If the cost of the test is a little out of your price range, I have had success doing elimination diets, which typically take about 3-6 months of strict adherence to determine specific food sensitivities.
