How it works
Keeping your child healthy and fit can seem like a daunting task, but ensuring your child is eating the right foods and maintaining a strong body is essential. Thankfully Lab Tests Direct has made this easy with two in-depth tests which will tell you what’s right for your child and what isn’t as well as the potential risks and symptoms they may be facing.
The lgG Food Sensitivity Testing is a great tool for figuring out the types of food you should be feeding your child, being a convenient home collection kit, it screens for 96 commonly consumed foods that may be causing a symptom which can often be very difficult to identify from the time the food is consumed until the time the symptom becomes present. This is referred to as a delayed food sensitivity reaction. The results stemming from this test are patient-specific and provide an easy, precise and effective starting point for your child’s dietary manipulation. The benefits of food sensitivity testing are: help determine if food reactions are contributing to physical or mental symptoms and eliminating all identified food allergens after testing which can reduce stress on the immune system, decrease inflammation, resolve food craving and reduce the potential for eating disorders
Lab Tests Direct provides a Comprehensive Gut Analysis Profile which offers a comprehensive look at the overall health of the gastrointestinal (GI) in your child. This test is one of the most popular assessments as it serves as a unique screening test which is tailored to the individual. This stool analysis evaluates:
- Digestion/absorption markers (where it all begins)
- Gut beneficial bacteria (the gut immunity system)
- Gut bacterial overgrowth assessment (where symptoms commence if too much is present)
- Gut parasites (can be caused by a variety of factors including recent travel or poor hygiene)
The advanced stool profile can reveal important clinical information about many common symptoms such as gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhoea and constipation. The comprehensive Guy Analysis profile is tailored to the individual providing commentary related to the test report and potential treatment protocols if warranted. The gut guy is your second brain… ensure your child’s safety and get tested today!
