Food Intolerance Test
Is Food Intolerance Causing Your Chronic Health Issues?
The body can react to foods in many different ways. Food allergies are becoming more prevalent in Western countries, with up to 10% of the population affected. This trend is likely an interaction between genetic, epigenetic, and environmental risk factors IgE Food Antibodies.
The Allergix IgG4 Food Antibody Profile is a blood spot test that measures IgG4 antibodies to 30 commonly consumed foods.
What is an IgG4 food sensitivity response? An IgG4 response to food is actually more common than the IgE response, which causes an immediate reaction. IgG4 food sensitivity reactions are more subtle since they can occur hours or even days after consumption of an triggering food. Sometimes, a reaction to a food may be delayed several days after eating 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 30 different foods, including commonly eaten foods such as corn, milk, egg, and wheat.
From a simple finger stick, the Bloodspot IgG4 Food Antibodies Profile offers a less invasive alternative to a blood draw in determining IgG4 food reactions.

Why use the food intolerance test?
The incidence of food sensitivities has increased dramatically over the years. It is estimated that up to 20% of the population have adverse reactions to foods, NSAID enteropathy, and post-infectious Irritable Bowel Syndrome(IBS).
Conditions associated with IgG4 food antibodies:
• Eosinophilic Esophagitis
• Irritable Bowel Syndrome/ GI symptoms
• Crohn's Disease
