IgG4 Food Antibodies Profile


The IgG4 Food Antibodies is a food sensitivity test which helps identify those with IgG–mediated food intolerances. IgG4 antibody is related to delayed or non–atopic food reactions that exacerbate or contribute to many different health problems. This antibody food sensitivity test is ideal for patients who may suffer from delayed reactions/sensitivities to specific foods. What is an IgG4 food sensitivity response? An IgG4 response to food is actually more common than the IgE response, which causes an immediate reaction. These food sensitivity reactions are more difficult to notice since they can occur hours or even days after consumption of an offending food. In some cases, a person's reaction to a food may occur several days after eating the offending food and the link between the food and their symptoms may not be connected. These hidden food “allergies” are actually food “sensitivities” and are caused by increasing blood levels of IgG4 antibodies in reaction to specific foods. This profile measures the IgG4 levels in serum that react to 90 different foods, including commonly eaten foods such as corn, milk, egg, and wheat. IgG–Mediated symptoms may include:

  • Asthma
  • Arthritis
  • Migraines
  • Ear Infections
  • Eczema
  • Sinusitis
  • Urticaria
  • Colitis
Why use the food intolerance test? The incidence of food sensitivities has increased dramatically over the years. It is estimated that up to 20% of the population have adverse reactions to foods, NSAID enteropathy, and post–infectious Irritable Bowel Syndrome(IBS). IgG Antibody Food Intolerance Testing:
  • New patent–pending IgG4 assay allows our test to show less false positives leading to better patient compliance
  • First test to quantitate IgG4
  • Eliminates non–specific binding, lowering false positives without rejecting true positives
WE offer 2 IgG4 Food Antibody Profiles:
  • IgG4 Food Antibody Profile – measures serum levels of IgG4 antibodies specific to 90 food antigens.
  • Bloodspot IgG4 Food Antibody Profile – measures levels of IgG4 antibodies specific to 30 common offending foods from an easy–to–use finger stick.

IgG Food Panel


IgG Food Antibody Assessment is a food sensitivity test which helps identify those with true IgE-mediated allergies as well as IgG-mediated food sensitivities. This immunological food sensitivity test measures IgG antibody levels to 87 foods, and total IgE. Additional sensitivity tests are also available for regional inhalants, molds, vegetables, and spices. This antibody food sensitivity test is ideal for patients who may suffer from delayed reactions/sensitivities to specific foods. It may also provide insight on intolerances, or non-immune responses, to certain foods. Additionally, the IgG Food Panel includes information on implementing an Elimination Diet based on the patient test results. Why use the food sensitivity test? The incidence of food sensitivities has increased dramatically over the years. It is estimated that up to 20% of the population have adverse reactions to foods, NSAID enteropathy, and post-infectious Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). Increased total antigenic load related to food and environmental sensitivities has been associated with a wide range of medical conditions affecting virtually every part of the body. Mood and behavior, including hyperactivity disorders in children are profoundly influenced by food allergies. IgG-Mediated symptoms may include:

  • Asthma
  • Arthritis
  • Migraines
  • Ear Infections
  • Eczema
  • Sinusitis
  • Urticaria
  • Colitis
Classic skin testing for allergies such as skin-scratch testing only measures IgE-mediated reactions. Assessment of relative IgG antibody levels to a multitude of foods using sensitive Enzyme-Linked-Immnosorbent Assay (ELISA) technology identifies those foods against which the patient is producing antibodies. Measuring both relative IgE and IgG antibody levels provides an invaluable starting point for dietary intervention. NOTE: When ordering the IgG Food Antibodies test, it will be listed as “Allergy Antibody” on the Order Menu. Test Type: Blood Test Please contact us for pricing
