About ALCAT Testing

The ALCAT Test is NOT an “allergy” or IgE test. Nor is it an IgG food sensitivity test.
Available for over 25 years, The ALCAT Test is a laboratory method for identification of non-IgE mediated reactions to foods, chemicals, and other categories of substances. The test identifies cellular reactions to over 350 foods, chemicals and other substances. These potential triggers of inflammation have been linked to chronic health problems like migraines, aching joints, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, eczema, hyperactivity/ADD, asthma and even obesity. The ALCAT Test is available in the United States as well as the U.K., Italy, Denmark, Jordan,Thailand, Hong Kong, Spain, Mexico, Greece, Germany, Australia, Malaysia and South America including Chile, Colombia and Argentina. Please see our Worldwide Distributors Page for more details regarding testing outside of the U.S and Canada.

Recently, Dr. Robert Sheeler, former professor at the Mayo Medical School, wrote an open letter to the healthcare industry about the Alcat Test. Read the letter (pdf).

If you have your blood drawn in our Morton Grove clinic, there is no draw fee. If you order online, you will be sent a KIT and will need to have your blood drawn locally. We can help you find a phlebotomist. Draw fees vary, but can be between $25 and $50.

How to choose the right ALCAT test

  • Selecting a 50 or 100 food panel for an adult is not recommended. These limited panels will not provide an adult patient with sufficient food selections to implement a 4 day rotation diet.
  • Download the Medical Symptom Questionnaire here.

  • Contact us for pricing for panels not listed.

  • You can check Alcat’s tests on their web site and contact us for pricing.

  • No doctor’s order is necessary.

  • Some tests can only be ordered from us in IL, IN, or MI.
