Food Intolerance Test

NON-FASTING BLOOD TEST

About the Food Intolerance Test

This test determines the foods you may be intolerant to i.e. have a delayed response to. These foods can affect you more than 48 hours after you ingest them and the effects can last for days. This test will enable you to identify the foods that could be contributing to your weight gain, fatigue, water retention, insomnia, IBS, gas and bloating, acne, eczema, hives, joint pain and migraine headaches. This test is important because most allergy testing fails to identify foods that have a delayed response (as they induce a different bodily reaction than food allergies do) and while food elimination diets do offer a chance to discover food intolerances, they’re extremely restrictive and long-lasting.

This simple blood test is able to measure your delayed reactions to 59 different foods types. Using immunoglobulins, this test is able to see if you have a particular intolerance to certain food types by their reactions in your blood sample. The different immunoglobulin food reactions: Immediate reactions (IGE) to food intolerances are fairly obvious as they occur soon after eating the problematic food. Delayed reactions (IGG) are much harder to pinpoint as reactions can occur up to three days after consumption. This is where the blood test can come in handy.
