Event Details

Recently, researchers from the Yale School of Medicine published their evaluation of the efficacy of the Alcat Test for food sensitivity for management of patients with IBS. (Ali AWeiss TRMcKee Det al Efficacy of individualized diets in patients with irritable bowel syndrome: a randomized controlled trial. .


They reported on symptom outcome, proteomic evaluation on strong responders, and corollary inflammatory pathways.  Taken together this data sheds light on the pathomechanisms of cellular reactions to foods and use of a non-drug approach toward the management of a condition that afflicts approximately 15 – 20% of the US population.
