The patient is pleasant 34-year-old female who is here for initial evaluation and complaints of stomach pain, cramping, and bloating, gas, nausea, and migraines, headaches, GI, eczema, excessive sweating, and hives. The patient had these symptoms for the last several years and the patient is wondering whether any association with food tolerance will be causing her symptoms.
Gas and bloating.
I think the patient will benefit from ALCAT testing for food intolerance. The patient will have blood drawn. We will follow up and review the test result. The patient gave consent to the blood drawn for ALCAT testing. Four 4.5 mL of tubes were obtained. The patient tolerated the procedure well. Bandages were applied over the phlebotomy site. Tubes were labeled appropriately with the patient name and date and packaged for the shipment. The patient will return to the office in two weeks for the ALCAT test results.
