Immunology / Allergy
Why Use Targeted Immunology & Allergy Testing?
Food intolerances (also known as food sensitivities) can occur at any age, triggering a wide range of symptoms.
In some cases, a person's reaction to a food may occur several days after eating the offending food and the link between the food and their symptoms may not be connected. These hidden food “allergies” are actually food “sensitivities” and are caused by increasing blood levels of IgG4 antibodies in reaction to specific foods. This profile measures the IgG4 levels in serum that react to 90 different foods, including commonly eaten foods such as corn, milk, egg, and wheat. A food intolerance reaction patient guide is provided with each test result.
IgG-Mediated symptoms may include:
- Ear Infections
