Our specialists at Beingwell focus the diagnosis, treatments of cause and symptoms and form holistic solutions to best suit individual situations. Our team-based approach encourages our specialists from all healthcare backgrounds to create an all-rounded approach to restore your health.
- Food and inhalant allergy blood tests
IgE food allergy testing reveals reactions that occur immediately after ingesting offending foods such as peanuts or shellfish.
- IgE molecular allergy blood tests
ImmunoCAP ISAC is a highly advanced tool for revealing the patient’s IgE antibody profile. It is the result of a combination of innovative biochip technology and research in molecular allergology. From an allergen source, single allergen components can be produced. Sensitisation to these components is then measured individually, helping to pinpoint on an exact molecular level which component the patient is sensitised to. This information provides the basis for a refined diagnosis of the allergy.
- IgG food intolerance test
An IgG response to food is more common than the IgE response. These reactions are more difficult to notice since they can occur hours or even days after consumption of an offending food. In some cases, a person’s reaction to a food may occur several days after eating the offending food and the link between the food and their symptoms may not be connected.
- Leaky gut syndrome
The Intestinal Permeability Assessment is an effective and non-invasive assessment of small intestinal absorption and barrier function in the bowel. This test analyses urine for the clearance of two non-metabolised sugars, lactulose and mannitol, identifying intestinal permeability (leaky gut) and malabsorption
- Celiac Disease (gluten intolerance) test
The Celiac Test measures IgA-tTG, Serum IgA, and IgA-AGA. When IgA-tTG and IgA-AGA are positive, there is a high degree of certainty the patient has celiac disease. Individuals with moderate to strong positives should follow up with a biopsy.
- Metabolic syndrome test
Obesity will be among the greatest influences on morbidity and mortality in the coming decades. A major contributor to obesity is Metabolic Syndrome. The most direct cause of Metabolic Syndrome is declining responsiveness to insulin, leading to increased pancreatic insulin output to maintain normal blood glucose.
- Gastro intestinal parasitology test
The Comprehensive Parasitology Profile is a thorough analysis to detect the presence of intestinal params, as well as beneficial intestinal microflora, imbalanced flora, and bacterial or fungal possible pathogens. This stool test can help reveal hidden causes behind acute or chronic conditions.
