Cyrex Labs Food Sensitivity Testing
Functional tests are laboratory tests that address the functions of the various systems of the body. The tests are designed to assess such diverse areas of health as adrenal function, detoxification capacity, digestive function, overall immune system function, vitamin and mineral status, energy metabolism, inflammation and much more. Functional tests use saliva, urine, stool and blood to provide the information to improve health status and upon which to develop customized nutrition and lifestyle programs.
These are specialized blood tests to identify delayed food reactions that are hard to determine from conventional allergy testing. When food sensitivities are present there could be a multitude of symptoms that are not usually recognized as being caused by food reactions – depression, anxiety, ADD, skin eruptions and rashes, headaches, sinus issues, unresolved digestive issues, joint pain, fibromyalgia, and other inflammatory conditions.
