Delayed food sensitivities are a very common trigger of migraines. Simply avoiding trigger foods can reduce or eliminate migraines.
The challenge is figuring out which foods are the culprit. Unlike true food allergies that cause dramatic reactions almost instantly, food sensitivity reactions are mild to moderate and delayed. Because of this it is nearly impossible to figure out which foods to avoid.
We utilize a specialty two-step food sensitivity test that measures antibodies AND whether exposure to those foods actually cause a blood response. This second step is extremely important in improving test accuracy. This keeps you from avoiding foods that really don't cause a problem.
Our test measures 176 different foods, coloring and additives. This test is sometimes referred to as a Food Inflammation Test or FIT.
(This test includes the blood draw, specimen processing, lab fee, and a copy of the results. The test does not include an appointment with a provider.)
