What is MRT Testing
MRT stands for Mediator Release Test. All food-induced inflammatory reactions involve mediator release, which is the single most important event leading to all the negative effects you may be suffering, including symptom generation. There are 3 categories of diet-induced inflammatory reactions.
Food and food-chemical sensitivities are highly complex non-allergic (non-IgE), non-celiac inflammatory reactions. They follow multiple inflammatory pathways and may be governed by either innate or adaptive immune mechanisms. There are a wide range of chronic inflammatory conditions wherein food and food-chemical sensitivities play either a primary or secondary role in generating inflammation and symptoms.
