Who should take this Food Sensitivity test?
Do you ever feel like you may have certain symptoms related to foods, such as headaches, stomach pain, diarrhea, or fatigue? Do you feel you may want to try eliminating possible triggers, but you are not sure where to start?
Our Food Sensitivity test measures your body’s IgG immune response to 95 foods that are commonly found in western diets.
An improvement in food sensitivity symptoms after eliminating the triggering food source is always the best test. Rather than randomly eliminating foods over many months and assessing your change in symptoms, you can have a directed elimination plan. An antibody IgG immune response can offer guidance on what foods may be the best to eliminate temporarily, then complete an add back challenge to identify symptom producing foods. Note that this test is not a food allergy test, which measures severe allergies that can be life threatening conditions. Food allergy tests measure IgE antibodies and can’t be currently taken at home. This test also cannot diagnose Celiac Disease.
Food can trigger an immune response which may manifest itself in physical symptoms such as:
Dry and itchy skin
Other miscellaneous skin problems
Feeling bloated after eating
Gastrointestinal (GI) distress
