Food intolerance (270 parameters)
We offer an extensive IgG food allergy laboratory test. Your blood sample will be analysed by a specialised laboratory which determines the presence of antibodies against a broad variety of foodstuffs.
What is an IgG food allergy?
These type III food allergies often remain undetected because the symptoms may occur only after a few hours or even days after the consumption of a particular food, making them extremely difficult to identify.
If you have a type III allergy, your immune system produces so-called specific IgG antibodies against food proteins. These antibodies can cause inflammatory processes which can become chronic. Symptoms are varied. Their appearance is delayed by up to three days after the inappropriate food was eaten.
It’s important to notice that a type III allergy should not be mistaken for a classic food allergy (type I). If you have a type I allergy, your immune system produces so-called IgE antibodies. These antibodies lead to an immediate allergic reaction. The symptoms appear within seconds or minutes. This test does not detect classic food allergies.
The immune system of the intestine is the largest in the entire body. Over 80% of the immune defence reactions originate from the intestine. It guarantees an almost invincible barrier for bacteria, viruses and other pathogens and a barrier against other foreign proteins from food. Our body has an extraordinary tolerance to foods, on the condition they are correctly digested and pass the intact intestinal barrier in the intended manner, namely through the intestinal cells.
However, due to medicines, infections, mycosis, stress and environmental poisons the integrity of the intestinal wall can become damaged again and again and food components can slip between the intestinal cells. The immune system may then initiate an immune reaction against these food proteins.
Along with your test results, you will receive your individual nutritional concept. Your test results and your personal nutritional guidelines will help you with an elimination and provocation diet with the aim of reducing inlammatory processes.
The results are ready in 5 days.
