Patient background and challenges faced:
1. Case Study Overview:
A 30-year-old man, presented with symptoms indicative of food intolerance that had previously been misdiagnosed. Traditional diagnostic methods had proven inadequate, leaving the patient frustrated and without a viable treatment plan.
The patient’s journey may have begun with a series of misdiagnoses, as his symptoms were initially not recognized as being related to food intolerance. This could have resulted in frustration and a prolonged search for answers.
2. Seeking Second Opinions:
Due to the persistence of his symptoms (abdominal (belly) pain, diarrhea, gas and bloating, headaches or migraines, heartburn, nausea, upset stomach…) and dissatisfaction with previous diagnoses, the patient may have sought second opinions from other healthcare professionals. This could involve consultations with other physicians, specialists, or clinics that could offer different perspectives and expertise.
Seeking a better solution, the healthcare team turned to the Foodprint® test provided by Babirus Medical Equipment LLC.

Foodprint® is a highly sensitive and accurate laboratory test that detects the presence of IgG food-specific antibodies to a wide range of foods and is the first step in identifying which foods may be causing an inappropriate immune response and affecting your health.
Measuring food-specific IgG antibodies from a blood sample is the most reliable way to identify foods that may be causing unexplained chronic symptoms.
Foodprint®, the Food Intolerance test from Cambridge Nutritional Sciences is the first step in identifying which foods may be causing an inappropriate immune response from a simple blood test.
