Food Allergy Test – Food Sensitivities Test – Food Intolerance Test We can run all of these tests for you easily!
Traditional and most commercial blood tests only test ONE component of gluten which is called alpha gliadin 33 MER.
This is why so many gluten intolerance reactions are missed! There are many more components to gluten which need to be tested, not just one.
Any gluten component can cause a negative immune response in the individual when gluten proteins are not broken down properly in the body.
Our lab runs both IgA and IgG immune pathways plus NINE components of gluten in both IgG and IgA, plus 3 auto immune reactions towards the skin, brain and GI tract.
Adults should order the blood test and children (if not able to do a blood test) should do the stool test.
IgG4 Food Intolerance Testing
The IgG4 antibodies test identifies non-atopic or “delayed” food allergy reactions. These are the most common form of food intolerances. IgG blocks the potentially dangerous IgE reactions. IgG are harder to find then IgE because they are “delayed” food reactions which can occur hours or even 24 hours after a food is injested. The IgG test is for 90 foods and can be done through a blood draw or a blood spot.
IgG4 Food Allergy Testing
IgE measures specific immune response to a food that is causing an “immediate” food allergy reaction. The IgE test is for 30 foods. This test requires a blood draw.
This test measures the immune systems response to food, chemcials, herbs, medicinal foods and molds. The body’s response to the item tested is called inflammation. Alcat measures leukocyte cellular reactivity in whole blood.
The Alcat test can check up to 200 foods, 50 functional foods & Medicinal Herbs, 20 Food Additives and Colorings, 10 molds and 20 antibitiotics and medications.
Delayed Food intolerances affect over 80% of the population while less than 5% of people actually have IgE food allergies.
Skin tests, RAST, or IgE blood tests do not detect delayed food allergies. They only measure the release of histamine or the presence of allergen specific IgE molecules.
Some food sensitivity symptoms are:
- Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain
- Gastrointestinal Disorders
- Constant Sinus Congestion or Weakened Immune System
When foods contributing to food allergy symptoms are continually ingested, the body eventually revolts which results in “allergic” symptoms.
The body recognizes certain foods as strange, hostile invaders and it reacts in an allergic manner.
A delayed food intolerance – food sensitivity test is a great way to learn which foods you need to eliminate from your diet to feel better quickly!
