At Hospital 57357, we pursue to acquire the latest world diagnostic and treatment equipment. In this context, the Hospital recently acquired a device to test nutritional fingerprint/ metabolic typing. According to Eng. Doaa Yehia, it is a small German device from Euroline, used to test food intolerance.
Dr. Sonya Soliman revealed that the new device tests the body reaction to different types of food. The results of this test enable us to identify the types of food that may cause problems as a result of their interaction with the body.
The interaction of the body with the different types of foods varies from one person to the other. Some people may suffer from generating anti bodies when eating certain types of food which may lead to the appearance of health problems that are hard to explain since it appears days or months after eating the food. The new device tests the body reaction to 216 types of foods plus specifying the extent of the reaction. The device analyzes blood specimens to test the ratio of anti-bodies type “IgG” for each type of food separately. This way it specifies the degree of the body’s interaction with food where some foods may cause strong auto immune reactions which may result in symptoms such as headache, stomach ache, dry skin with itching, different skin problems, feeling full after eating, joints pain or migraine.
According to Dr. Soliman, the device is also used to diagnose auto immune diseases that are hard to detect.
