Basic Food Sensitivity and Allergy (IgG) Panel


Certain proteins in foods may cause an immune response, commonly known as an allergy or intolerance. An immune response may occur right away or have a more insidious onset before damage of the exposure becomes evident. Allergic responses cause elevation inflammatory markers we can measure. Through different pathways, these immune responses cause an increase in inflammation in the part of the body that is affected.

Immune responses may manifest as chronic fatigue, headaches, joint pain, gut problems such as irritable bowel, celiac, thyroid dysfunction, depression and mood disorders. Allergic responses also instigate an imbalance in blood sugar and insulin levels. As we know, a chronic elevation in blood sugar is a dangerous threat to brain health. If someone with immune responses to certain foods is continually exposed to these food proteins, these food proteins become a toxin and a vicious cycle of inflammatory destruction becomes self-generating. Over time, sugar cravings continue to increase and so does the multitude of dysfunction initiated by the inflammatory process. When it comes to promoting brain health, this information maybe very helpful indeed.

This test is used to detect allergen specific IgG antibodies to 8 common foods known to instigate an immune response: Wheat, Gluten, Milk (Cow), Eggs (Whole), Soy, Almond, Peanut and Corn.
