Why choose the Bloodspot IgG Food Antibodies Profile?
From a simple finger prick, the Bloodspot IgG4 Food Antibodies Profile offers a non-invasive alternative to a blood draw in determining IgG food allergy reactions. Responses to 30 different foods are tested, and responses are categorized by severity from borderline to mild, moderate, or severe on your report. view sample
Features of blood spot testing:
- Does not require venipuncture
- Easy to use at home
- Offers the same level of precision as blood draw methods
Accurately identify the source of your symptoms through testing.
IgG antibodies are associated with “delayed” allergic food reactions that can worsen or contribute to many different health problems. Food allergy sensitivities can occur at any age, triggering many different symptoms and contribute to a variety of disorders. From a simple finger prick, the Bloodspot IgG4 Food Antibody Profile measures levels of IgG4 antibodies specific to 30 commonly offending foods. It clearly identifies those foods that may be causing health problems, helping to achieve positive outcomes sooner.
The Bloodspot IgG4 Food Antibody Profile is a bloodspot (fingerprick) test that you can do yourself. It measures the total IgG levels that react to common food antigens.
With this test you can determine the primary cause of adverse food reactions. You get very useful data to design an appropriate diet that excludes major offending foods that make you feel bad.
Food allergies have been implicated in a wide range of medical conditions affecting virtually every part of the body- ranging from uncomfortable symptoms such as indigestion and gastritis, to severe illnesses such as celliac disease, arthritis, and chronic infection. Food allergies have been linked to central nervous system disorders including depression, anxiety, and chronic fatigue.
IgG antibodies are associated with delayed hypersensitivity reactions, which are the most difficult to detect.
These delayed or "hidden" food allergies can cause chronic symptoms. Since IgG allergic reactions occur several hours or days later, there may be no obvious association between food consumption and adverse reactions. Food IgG levels increase in response to the presence of food antigens in the bloodstream, particularly commonly eaten foods ( e.g. corn, wheat, soy, and eggs). IgG antibodies combine with specific food antigens to form immune complexes which are considered active agents in delayed allergic responses. The complexes can cause inflammatory reactions at various sites in the body ( e.g. small and large intestines, skin, kidney, ears, sinuses, head, lungs, and joints). Such allergic reactions are also associated with anxiety, depression, insomnia and irritability.
The frequency of food allergies and the number of persons affected has increased dramatically in the last few years. Adverse food reactions and food allergies are now reported in 25% of young children. Some practitioners now believe that food allergies are the leading cause of undiagnosed symptoms and that at least 60% of American suffer from symptoms due to adverse food reactions.
Common offending foods eaten frequently and typically hard to avoid:
- Foods processed with molds such as black tea, breads, and fruit juices
In Addition, the Bloodspot IgG4 Food Antibody Profile will give results for antibody reactions to the following:
- aspergillus mix
- mustard seed
- pinto bean
