The incidence of allergies and food sensitivities has increased over the last few years. Recent findings attribute this to Western diet which could affect the homeostasis of the gut microbiome, impacting the immune status of individuals.1

IgG FOOD INTOLERANCE TEST

IgG –specific antibody-mediated reactions are a body’s natural and normal defensive reactions to infiltrating food antigens. IgGs involved in type III reactions may initiate some adverse food reactions and, by contributing to increased intestinal permeability, they may also play a role in chronic intestinal inflammations.3

Our IgG Food Intolerance test up to 270 foods using sensitive Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) analysis. The test results will identify the individual “trigger” foods that causes the inflammatory response of the body resulting to manifestations of the symptoms. Symptoms are usually more subtle and range from headaches and nausea to depression, anxiety, and hyperactivity, or simply just fatigue, bloating, or mood changes after eating. These symptoms may occur hours or even days after the offending food has been ingested making it difficult to pinpoint which food causes problems. IgG Food Intolerance test helps to localize and limit the “trigger” providing invaluable starting point in undergoing an elimination diet or dietary intervention.
