Celiac, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and Crohn’s Array

The Celiac, IBS, and Crohn’s Array (CICA) evaluate your genetic risk for celiac disease, serum markers associated with the active celiac disease process, and genetic serum markers associated with Crohn’s disease all through a simple blood draw. Optionally, it can be combined with the Alcat Test to evaluate innate immune cell responses to as many as 400 other foods (including gluten, gliadin, casein, and whey) and substances for the most comprehensive assessment. You may benefit from the test if you are experiencing any of the following:

Gastrointestinal Disorder Symptoms
Autoimmune Disorder
Suspected Crohn's Disease
Suspected Celiac Disease
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
Chronic Fatigue
Nutrient Deficiency / Malabsorption
Unexplained Weight Loss
Seeking healthier lifestyle

GI issue prevalence in the United States

In the United States, an estimated 60-70 million people are affected by gastrointestinal disorders (GI). Celiac disease may be present despite the absence of GI symptoms, particularly, in relatives of individuals with celiac disease.

  • In the U.S., 2 in 5 Americans are affected by GI disorders.
  • Up to 20% of adults in North America suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
  • Approximately 0.44% of Americans experience Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
  • Up to 1% of the general population have symptoms of celiac disease.
  • 15% of the general population in western countries suffer from indigestion and constipation.

Not surprisingly, there is overlap between these disorders.

The Process

CICA test results are color-coded and easy to read. Each result is thoroughly explained with expert commentary.

See what people are saying

I have made it to the gym 3 days in a row.  One day my husband came also. I am trying Helen’s recipes and have decided to cook ahead on Saturday. Thank you for helping me reach my goals and as you say, “It is for me and my health”…I do feel better over all!  I share what I have learned with others.  And people are coming out of the wood work, coming up to me saying what a change they see in me.  I am looking forward to wearing shorts this summer. I haven’t worn any for 3 yrs…. just capri’s!

I cannot express my gratitude enough to Helen Agresti of Professional Nutrition Consulting.

Recently, while at a social gathering, I was talking about the summer and all it will hold this year. Although tiring…the summer was full of activity. Helen smiled warmly and then noticed, as I proceeded to go through my third glass of water…not the water all the ice I was chewing. She mentioned this may be a sign of low iron. Upon her recommendation, I visited my family physician and had blood work done. One week later, the letter arrived. I am indeed anemic and need to start a Iron supplement immediately. Helen has always been a true champion for her clients, but it is also her skillful and comprehensive approach to her work that allows her clients to reach their true potentials. Through casual conversation, she demonstrated how she crosses into all aspects of her expertise…healthy on the inside and outside.

Many many thanks and so much Gratitude!

Helen has really helped me get the most out of my diet and exercise plan. She taught me to really understand the nutrition label and how to make healthier choices that make a difference. Helen doesn’t use the word “diet” I have learned from her that I am making a lifestyle change. She is easy to work with and has a lot of great ideas to make your favorite meals healthier.

Lisa, Erie, PA

I am so thankful for finding Helen. She has been great in helping me lose weight (over 20 pounds!) but more importantly, helping me learn to live a healthier lifestyle with food and exercise. Helen is very patient and encouraging on this journey. I have learned to read labels better and also the importance of putting the right combination of foods together for sustainable energy. There are no gimmicks or prepackaged foods with Helen. It is about making right choices, eating whole foods and exercising. Thank you, Helen!

I have never been able to lose weight until I met Helen. She is a great motivator and always has a smile and something good to say to me in a positive way. Before seeing Helen twice a month I ate chips, cookies, crackers and all the quick and fattening foods that are easy to get and a quick fix. I now go to the gym and swim and exercise when before I sat and ate all evening. Now I have lost almost 25 pounds and I feel so much better. To be continued!!

Natalie Erie, PA

I went to see Helen about losing weight. I’ve tried to lose weight in the past and would lose 4 or 5 pounds and then gain it right back. I’m an unusual client because I work 3rd shift.  Helen helped me figure out what I should be eating and when. She also said I would lose 20 pounds in 2 months and I thought she was crazy but before the 2 months was up I had lost 20 lbs. I now realize by eating right and adding some exercise anyone can lose the weight if they set their mind to it. I still have a little farther to go to reach my goal but I know with Helen’s help I will achieve the goal I set out for.

Debbie Erie, PA

I am down 90 lbs! Helen has helped me improve my eating habits. I now make sure to read labels, and I cut out unhealthy snacking between meals. Along with creating healthy eating habits, I also make sure to go for plenty of walks.  Since losing weight, I find that I have more energy and the walks are no longer tiring like they used to be. Over the past few months, I have lowered my blood pressure and my cholesterol. Helen has been a great help, during our consultations, she has provided me with great advice and continued words of encouragement. With Helen’s aid, I have been able to successfully lose weight and keep it off. I really feel great!
