Food & Micronutrient testing

Sensitivities + deficiencies

Dr. Edward Barbarito MD and Melissa Miao PA-C offer insight into your body’s immune responses to common foods, and measure the function of vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within your white blood cells.

food sensitivity testing

If you have headaches, stomach pain, diarrhea, or fatigue, eliminating “trigger” foods from your diet is a great place to begin.  But how do you identify these foods, and where do you start?

Our testing can offer guidance on foods that may be ideal to eliminate initially, as well as others that could be removed temporarily.  

Immune responses to certain foods may show up as physical symptoms such as:

  • dry skin
  • bloat
  • fatigue
  • joint pain
  • migraines
  • headaches
  • gastrointestinal (GI) distress
  • stomach pain

micronutrient deficiency testing

A balanced diet, exercise, and a multivitamin sounds great, but it simply may not be enough.

Our micronutrient deficiency testing measures vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and amino acids within the white blood cells.  

Micronutrient deficiencies can manifest as:

  • constipation, bloating, or abdominal pain
  • decreased immune system
  • diarrhea
  • irregular heart beat
  • loss of appetite
  • muscle cramping
  • nausea and vomiting
  • numbness or tingling in the extremities
  • poor concentration
  • slow social or mental development in children
  • weakness or tiredness
