How do i find out what i'm allergic to?
Allergies can range from a mildly annoying runny nose or itchy eyes to a life-threatening food allergy. At Lipogenex Anti-Aging Center, we provide full testing and treatment for a wide variety of allergies. To find out what you're allergic to, we use a battery of testing that includes the ALCAT (antigen leukocyte antibody test), which screens for reactions to things in your diet. Whether your allergies are caused by something in the environment or in the food you eat, Dr. Emmanouil Karampahtsis can help you identify and treat your allergy problems for relief.

What Are The Most Common Allergies?
The cause of allergies can come from the environment, the food you eat, or even your own body. The top ten most common allergies are:
- Food allergies (dairy, nuts, shellfish)
- Insect stings (bees)
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
- An overactive immune system
Each allergy can present its own unique symptoms so to know for sure what's causing your allergies, consult a doctor for testing.
what does the alcat test measure?
The ALCAT test is a scientifically verified test and eating program that uncovers each individual’s food allergies and intolerances, which is followed by a rotational diet that eliminates the trigger foods from the diet. It measures your personalized nutrition at the cellular level. The core technology is a blood test that measures the body’s cellular response to challenges from a wide array of substances, including various foods, additives, colorings, and chemicals. The individual’s cellular reactivity after exposure of the blood to the various test agents, versus the person’s own baseline control, tells the healthcare provider which substances may be causing a sensitivity-related response in the body. Following resting, a four-day rotational diet is recommended to the patient.
For over 20 years, the ALCAT test has provided healthcare professionals and their patients with a tool for managing a wide variety of conditions linked to chronic activation of the immune system, such as:
- Digestive disorders
- Chronic fatigue
- Aching joints
- Skin disorders
- And many more
