My twin brother had an ALCAT to test for food senstivities. Would his food allergies be the same or similar to mine? We are not identical if that matters.

I'm just some guy who has read a lot but...
I know Allergies are often genetic, but that doesn't neccessarily mean you have the the same allergies. Also, the ALCAT Test is looking for food sensitivites. And food sensitivities can be caused by an unhealthy environment in the gut. So he may only be hyper sensitive to certain foods because he had an unhealthy digestive tract at that time. If that's the case, when he heals his leaky gut he may be far less sensitivitie to some foods. Lastly, there is no proof that ALCAT works. That said, I may be giving it a shot here soon unless my naturopath decides the Leap/MRT is truly better.
