Doctors have always viewed common illnesses such as irritable bowel, reflux, asthma, arthritis, eczema etc, as being individual, separate conditions with little in common. However, this is rapidly changing as medicine is now starting to recognise that most of these chronic illnesses have one thing in common – inflammation.  As a result, Fitzwilliam Food Test recently launched a test to measure this inflammation.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]What is even more interesting is that if all these common conditions have but one common root, then there is a common strategy for dealing with them. Treatments directed towards lowering the inflammation is that strategy (details below).[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][us_single_image image=”5606″ size=”full” align=”center”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row height=”auto” el_class=”vc_col-md-8 vc_col-md-offset-2″][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”About Hidden Inflammation” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:center” google_fonts=”font_family:Montserrat%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]Full-blown inflammation as in cases of rheumatoid arthritis, mostly presents as hot and painful and swollen joints and is very obvious. Low grade (hidden) inflammation, as the name suggests, refers to the inflammation process that goes on below the radar and is not overtly obvious. Up until recently, low grade (hidden) inflammation was not considered important and certainly not a significant causative factor of disease. But now, medical science is starting to recognise low grade inflammation as a vitally important marker and contributing factor in the causation of many chronic diseases.[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]

This new Fitzwilliam Food Test – inflammation test, is capable of measuring low levels of this CRP inflammatory marker. Even if you have no symptoms of disease, the presence of this low grade inflammation CRP marker is a warning of increased risk from degenerative diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and many of the autoimmune diseases that are proving to be the scourge of our times.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]In much the same way that the autoimmune markers associated with autoimmune disease are present for some considerable time (sometimes 5 years or more) before the disease appears, these CRP inflammatory markers are also present for some considerable time before these chronic, inflammatory diseases break through. So knowing your CRP status forewarns of trouble ahead allowing you to take proactive steps to lower it.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row height=”auto” width=”full” us_bg_image=”5607″ us_bg_repeat=”no-repeat” us_bg_overlay_color=”rgba(175,175,175,0.3)” bg_type=”image” css=”.vc_custom_1483619965604{margin-top: 20px !important;margin-bottom: 20px !important;padding-top: 130px !important;padding-bottom: 130px !important;}”][vc_column][us_separator type=”invisible” size=”huge”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row height=”auto” el_class=”vc_col-md-8 vc_col-md-offset-2″][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”The Low Grade Inflammation Test (hs-CRP Test)” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:center” google_fonts=”font_family:Montserrat%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/4″][us_single_image image=”5652″ size=”full” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fitzwilliamfoodtest.com%2Fshop%2Flow-grade-inflammation-test%2F|||” onclick=”custom_link”][us_btn text=”Buy Now” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fitzwilliamfoodtest.com%2Fshop%2Flow-grade-inflammation-test%2F|||” color=”blue” align=”center”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”3/4″][vc_column_text]This test checks for the presence of CRP inflammatory markers in your blood. The “high sensitivity” version of this test is specially calibrated to measure the background, hidden, low grade CRP markers and is referred to as a “hs-CRP test”. Many of the most recent publications indicate that this type of inflammation is one of the primary driving forces behind chronic disease.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]

In addition to the specialist clinic services, Fitzwilliam Food Test Clinic also offers clients the option of this same test as a mail order test.

Only a few pinprick drops of blood from your finger are required to do the analysis. The test kit will pass through a standard letter box.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”Cause of Low Grade Inflammation” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Montserrat%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]Several factors ranging from genetics and stress to diet and food intolerance, are all associated with this inflammation issue. In our experience at the Fitzwilliam Food Test clinic, the link with food intolerance is particularly strong.[/vc_column_text][us_single_image image=”5609″ size=”full” align=”center”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_custom_heading text=”How To Treat This Inflammation” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Montserrat%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_column_text]Food Intolerance is associated with raised levels of food specific IgG antibodies in your blood. For a lot of people, it is the elevated levels of these antibodies that triggers the inflammation process.

There is a very simple blood test Fitzwilliam Food Test (IgG Antibody Indicator Test) )for €15 which will tell you if you have raised levels of these IgG antibodies in your blood.

It is not able to detect which foods are causing the reaction but if it does come back as a positive, indicating that you have elevated levels of these IgG inflammatory antibodies, you could then progress to one of the specialist food intolerance tests that will pinpoint the exact trigger foods.

By avoiding these trigger foods, your body will stop producing the IgG inflammatory antibodies and in turn, the inflammation reaction settles down.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row height=”auto”][vc_column][us_cta title=”Low Grade Inflammation Test €65″ color=”custom” bg_color=”#b01e22″ text_color=”#fdb625″ btn_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fitzwilliamfoodtest.com%2Fservices%2Flow-grade-inflammation-testing%2F|||” btn_label=”Learn More” btn_color=”red” second_button=”1″ btn2_link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fitzwilliamfoodtest.com%2Fshop%2Flow-grade-inflammation-test%2F|||” btn2_label=”Buy Now” btn2_color=”red”][/us_cta][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row height=”auto” width=”full” us_bg_image=”5610″ us_bg_repeat=”no-repeat” us_bg_pos=”bottom center” us_bg_overlay_color=”rgba(255,255,255,0.2)” bg_type=”image” css=”.vc_custom_1483550143821{margin-top: 20px !important;margin-bottom: 20px !important;padding-top: 130px !important;padding-bottom: 130px !important;}”][vc_column][us_separator type=”invisible” size=”huge”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row height=”auto”][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:center” google_fonts=”font_family:Montserrat%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]IBS is one of the classic conditions where inflammation and food intolerance are at work. In recent times the emergence of a whole group of symptoms under the heading “irritable bowel syndrome” is proving most worrying of all. It is worrying because of the extreme number of people suffering with this debilitating condition.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]The most common presenting symptoms are bloating, flatulence, diarrhoea and / or constipation. It is estimated that as many as 20% of the population could be suffering with this condition. IBS can affect anyone at any age, but it commonly first develops in young adults. IBS is almost twice as common in women.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]More than anything else, IBS is again an inflammatory condition with strong links to food intolerance. Even the name “irritable bowel” is suggestive of irritation and inflammation. Food intolerance reactions are different to allergy reactions which are immediate and obvious. Food intolerance reactions show no immediate or obvious response to foods eaten but rather it is a delayed response (sometimes taking 24 or 48 hours) and that is why it has been overlooked.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Additionally, the type of inflammation associated with IBS is commonly not your standard full blown inflammation. It is more often this “low grade inflammation” as described above and requires this specific “high sensitivity” test to detect this type of hidden, low grade inflammation.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row height=”auto” width=”full” us_bg_overlay_color=”#adadad” css=”.vc_custom_1482249734623{margin-top: 20px !important;margin-bottom: 0px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_column_text]
