Once the results of your ALCAT test have been reported to our office, we will schedule you for a 1-hour complimentary consultation with our nutritionist Jenna Wunder, MPH, RD, to go over the results. This 1-hour consultation can happen in-person or over the phone, whatever you prefer, and will generally be scheduled 4 to 5 weeks after ordering the test.
Also, within 1-3 days of ordering the test you will receive a phone call from a local phlebotomy service to coordinate your in-home blood draw and careful handling of your specimen to ensure the most timely and accurate results. You do not need to discontinue any supplements and/or medications prior to your blood draw. Just make sure you are adequately hydrated and home when you have scheduled collection.
During your 1-hour nutritional consultation, Jenna will go over your results in detail, explaining your sensitivities, what foods to avoid, and for how long. She will also help you to understand what foods you can tolerate and which foods to rotate. If there are foods that you eat on a regular basis that you are sensitive to, Jenna will assist you in coming up with alternatives that not only align with your tolerable food list, but also sound good to your taste buds.
