Just wanted to share with you a new (at least new to me) type of food testing that our DAN has started doing. It’s called the MRT Food Sensitivity Test – which stands for Mediator Release Test. It is also sometimes called the LEAP test. This test can help determine foods that may be causing problems through non-IgG pathways. What it does is test foods to see if they cause other chemical mediators to be released into the bloodstream, like histamine, prostaglandins, cytokines, etc.
