EnteroLab (available at http://www.EnteroLab.com or 1-972-686-6869) is a registered and fully accredited clinical laboratory specializing in the analysis of intestinal specimens for gluten and other food sensitivities (reactions by the immune system to common proteins in the diet) that cause a variety of symptoms and diseases. One particular area of our focus relates to intestinal conditions caused by immune reactivity to a protein called gluten which is found in wheat, barley, rye, and oats. Recent research in our laboratory indicates that immune sensitivity to gluten is exceedingly common, present in about 40% of all Americans. Although these reactions can cause malnutrition, growth failure in children, osteoporosis, many autoimmune diseases (including colitis, diabetes, arthritis, and many others), most of the affected individuals are unaware they have it because previously there have been no sensitive tests capable of diagnosis. Similar sensitivity to yeast in the diet has been linked to the development of an inflammatory intestinal disease called Crohn's disease.
EnteroLab has developed a unique patented screening test for gluten sensitivity, as well as for many other antigenic food sensitivities, that is more sensitive and specific than other tests in current use. Our method utilizes stool rather than blood as the testing substrate; the rationale of using stool rather than blood for testing for food sensitivity is that immunologic reactions to proteins in the diet that cause these reactions are centered within the intestinal tract and not in the blood. Our new tests can improve the health of millions of people worldwide.
