Food Reactions & Immunology Testing

IgG Food Sensitivity

IgG food sensitivities have been implicated in migraine headaches and irritable bowel syndrome (alternating diarrhea and constipation). Bloating and indigestion are also common food sensitivity reactions, as is fatigue. Continued consumption of reactive foods may contribute to weight gain and/or difficult losing weight. Ezcema is also commonly associated with food reactions.


IgE Food Allergy

A true food allergy is triggered by an IgE antibody reaction to a specific food. IgE reactions generally occur within minutes of eating a reactive food, which is why they are also called ‘immediate’ hypersensitivity reactions.


IgA Food Reactions

Because IgA is the immunoglobulin of the mucous membranes, IgA reactions often result in digestive symptoms like abdominal discomfort, irritable bowel and bloating. Runny nose and excess mucous may also be signs of an IgA food reaction.


Celiac Profile

Both gluten sensitivity and celiac disease are reactions to proteins found in wheat gluten. Abdominal pain, irritable bowel, and weight loss are just some of the symptoms associated with gluten sensitivity and celiac disease.


Candida Profile

Having elevated IgG antibodies to candida suggests there may be a recent or current fungal infection. Some people experience fatigue, headache, depression and/or foggy memory with chronic exposure to Candida. Elevated IgG antibodies to Candida have been associated with poorer prognosis in cancer patients., although the presence of antibodies has not been shown to increase risk for developing cancer.


MELISA & Metal Hypersensitivity

MELISA stands for Memory LymphocyteImmunostimulation Assay, a test used to identify metal hypersensitivities.
