Food Intolerance Test Overview

Food intolerance is a condition in which the body cannot properly digest certain foods. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including allergies, sensitivities, and food poisoning. Many people mistakenly believe that they have food intolerances based on vague symptoms such as diarrhea or bloating. Food intolerance testing is an important way to screenings for other conditions such as celiac disease or gluten sensitivity. Testing can also help identify specific foods that may cause problems for some individuals.

The Food Intolerance Test (Specific IgG for 150+ Foods) measures the amount of Immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibodies in your blood for a wide range of 150 foods. This test is used to identify potential food sensitivities that may be causing chronic symptoms like digestive issues, fatigue, headaches, or skin problems. These symptoms can appear hours or even days after consuming the food you're sensitive to. By identifying these potential triggers, the test can help develop an elimination diet to see if symptoms improve when certain foods are removed.

Food intolerance test is a blood test. Blood sample is collected and sent to the lab for analysis.

The benefits of taking a food intolerance test can include discovering what you are allergic to or sensitive to. This can allow you to create a diet that meets your specific needs and is tailored to your body's requirements.

Some of the most common food intolerances include lactose intolerance, gluten sensitivity, and fructose malabsorption. These are all caused by an inability of your body to break down certain types of sugars or proteins.

If you have a food intolerance, it's important to know what steps to take next. After taking the food intolerance test, you will now have a better understanding of your symptoms and what triggers them.

  • First, it's important to track your diet. Make a list of all the foods that make you sick or cause discomfort. Then, try to avoid these foods as much as possible. If eating out is necessary for work or social events, be sure to ask about the restaurant's gluten-free policy in advance.
  • Next, it's important to identify any environmental factors that might be triggering your symptoms. This could include things like high levels of pollen or dust particles in the air, certain types of animals (especially cats and dogs), and chemical sensitivities at home or at work.
  • Finally, stay positive - with patience and consistency over time most people can overcome their food intolerance!
