The Science Behind Allergy and Intolerance Testing
Using ELISA testing for raised IgE antibodies to detect 38 allergies and 40 IgG4 antibodies to detect food intolerances, this test offers accurate lab results to enable you to optimise your diet and lifestyle. By testing both IgE and IgG4 antibodies we give you a more comprehensive picture of possible causes of symptoms aiding more effective elimination or further investigation.
How Does Allergy Testing Work?
Raised IgE (immunoglobulin E) antibodies are a recognized indicator of an allergy reaction. IgE allergy reactions are usually less common than intolerances (IgG) and present as a more immediate reaction.
How Does Intolerance Testing Work?
Raised IgG4 (Immunoglobulin G) antibodies indicate you have a food intolerance. IgG4 responses are more common than IgE (allergy), which causes an immediate reaction.
