About the IgG Test - Food Intolerance - Chandigarh
Several people exhibit chronic food sensitivity and intolerance to specific food groups. While the immediate effects of IgE- mediated food allergy, can be seen, IgG - mediated food intolerance reactions may take several days to appear.
Symptoms include lethargy, weight gain, dermatitis, arthritis, migraines and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Controlled removal of the suspect foods from the patient’s diet can in many cases, rapidly improve their condition.
Fully quantitative results are generated for every patient tested. Results are presented in personalized food reports which identify the precise IgG antibody level for every food item selected.
Reports are concise, colour- coded and grouped according to food reactivity or food groups, allowing health professionals to easily identify ‘problem’ foods.
It is ideal to test for immunoglobulins IgA IgG IgM to get a comprehensive test profile for your body.
Food Intolerance v/s Food Allergy
Food allergies trigger the immune system, while food intolerance does not. Some people suffer digestive problems after eating certain foods, even though their immune system has not reacted – there is no histamine response.
Foods most commonly associated with food intolerance include dairy products, grains that contain gluten, and foods that cause intestinal gas build up, such as beans and cabbage. In the event that you are experiencing chronic intolerance, it is best to get tested for immunoglobulin G.
