Lab Testing

Dr. Jiwani prefers to work with your Medical Doctor, and review MSP covered tests done by your Family Doctor. If there are additional tests required, Dr. Jiwani may provide you with a list of tests that you may request from your MD. Alternatively, since Dr. Jiwani has been granted lab access, she may provide you with a requisition so that you may privately do these tests at Life Labs, which may be covered by your insurance provider under “Naturopathic Coverage” and “Non-MSP Covered Lab Testing”.

Tests include:

 

Dr. Jiwani takes a science-based approach to natural, preventative healthcare, sharing with you breakthroughs that science has provided in testing. Only independent, third party, licensed labs, including those with government supervision, eg. CLIA, are specifically chosen by Dr. Jiwani. These regulated laboratory facilities used by Dr. Jiwani for almost two decades, provide results that are effective, can be duplicated and are reliable.

Excludes Non-Diagnostic/Information Gathering Tests: eg. VEGA, Live Blood Analysis

 

Food Allergy Testing Methods:

There are many ways available for Physicians (Naturopathic & Medical) to test for food allergies.

Common Allergy/Sensitivity Tests Performed by Physicians are:

Skin Prick Test:

ISSUES:  Can be painful; Limited to only immediate reactions, which is a problem as most reactions are delayed, Dangerous in patients with life-threatening reactions; Inaccurate in those with sensitive, hyper-reactive skin, leading to false positives.

RAST Blood Test:

ISSUES:  Limited to only immediate reactions, which is a problem as most reactions are delayed; Limited number of foods tested because it is very expensive and the government does not want to pay much.

Food Challenge Test:

ISSUES:  Dangerous in some patients; does not test for delayed reactions; very hard to know if multiple allergies exist; very hard to follow strict diet to determine if allergy (new food introduction) exists.

 

 VEGA Test:

Testing using a machine that measures the resistance between the skin contacting the hand electrode (metal handle) and the skin touching a measuring handle.

Practitioner doing the test can affect the result as the harder the skin was pressed by the probe, the higher the meter reading. Testing must be repeated every few months, making it an expensive form of testing. Unreliable results.

Many US states considered this test illegal. Several medical associations have advised against their use, including the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, the Australian College of Allergy, the Australasian Society of Clinical Immunology and Allergy, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and the Allergy Society of South Africa.

In 1990 a medical practitioner was censured by the Medical Practitioners Disciplinary Committee in New Zealand for using a Vega machine. Another practitioner was censured by the Discipline Committee of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario in 1999 for having “failed to meet the standard of practice” in his use of the Vega machine in diagnosis. Reviews of the available evidence in the medical literature indicate that electrodermal testing, such as that performed with a Vega machine, is ineffective at diagnosing allergies and recommend that it not be used.

Study:

BBC looked into VEGA testing at different locations in the UK, and the results varied amongst the testing locations. This lack of reproducibility is exactly what discredits this test method, and why the FDA has banned the importation of these VEGA testing devices into the United States. The results are misleading as the patient feels they have a diagnosis.

Study: 

The British Journal of Medicine published a double blind study comparing its results from a VEGA testing device with those of Skin Prick testing in 30 patients. Half of these patients had already been positively reactive for allergy to cat dander & house dust mites. Conclusively, VEGA testing did NOT correlate with Skin Prick testing. (Lewis GT et al. 2001)

Lewis GT and others. Is electrodermal testing as effective as skin prick tests for diagnosing allergies? A double blind, randomized block design study. British Journal of Medicine 322: 131-134, 2001

ELISA Blood Testing:

ELISA Blood Testing is also known as antigen blood analysis. ELISA detects particular antibodies in the blood, and is a very common form of medical testing. Enzyme Linked ImmunoSorbent Assay (ELISA) testing is used to diagnose Mono (Epstein-Barr virus), Malaria, Lyme disease, Tuberculosis, Hepatitis B, E.coli poisoning, AIDS (HIV), West Nile Virus, Influenza, Anemia, Chagas Disease, Ebola, Parasites, Home Pregnancy and Food Allergens in the Food Industry.

 

Dr. Jiwani’s Approach is ELISA Food Allergy Blood Testing:

Dr. Jiwani’s preferred method of Food Allergy Testing is ELISA Blood testing or Antigen Blood analysis. This state of the art technology, using Enzyme Linked ImmunoSorbent Assay (ELISA), requires a two vial blood sample drawn from the patient, and is sent to a CLIA registered lab in the United States. Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) are US federal regulatory standards that apply to all clinical lab testing done on humans in the US.

The CLIA registered lab tests for various antibody food allergy reactions on ninety-six different foods, producing accurate and reproducible results, confirmed with duplicate testing. Dr. Jiwani approves how the results are presented, as the levels of various antibody reactions (IgE, IgG & IgA) are shown in a bar graph format. Although few US labs do the ELISA testing, most are not regulated, nor provide duplicate testing to show how accurate the testing is.

These other labs, offering cheaper blood tests, show only a combined antibody result, instead of showing the different antibodies. It is crucial to report these different antibody levels as each antibody has a different affect in the body. IgE antibodies show allergies that are permanent whereas IgG & IgA show allergies that have been developed, and may go away with avoiding the food for a long enough time. This information is critical for Dr. Jiwani to share with her patients, which is why she uses a specific regulated US lab for food allergy blood testing. This lab does the testing once, and then they repeat the test again, to ensure the results are near identical. If the results are not statistically similar, the patient sample is tested again.

Adrenal Fatigue is a function of the chronic stress that is highly prevalent in our lifestyle today. The mere drive to work can stimulate your adrenaline in the light of the traffic congestion. Stress induces your body’s fight or flight response, due to the secretion of adrenaline, a hormone from the adrenal gland. Your ability to cope with stress is an essential survival mechanism. However, your response to stress can be altered with too much or not enough hormone secretion. This can occur when constant demands are placed on your body in the varied forms of stressors, causing adrenal fatigue. Do you have Adrenal Fatigue?
