IgG Food Explorer by Diagnostic Solutions
The IgG Food Explorer by Diagnostic Solutions Laboratory is an Elisa-based multiplex food sensitivity test measuring total IgG antibodies to many foods. Molecular antigens for wheat gliadin and cow’s milk are also included for enhanced insight into the sensitivity of those potentially immunogenic foods.
Understanding Food Allergies vs. Food Sensitivities
There are important differences between food sensitivities and food allergies. Different arms of the immune system facilitate both conditions. Food allergies are immediate, potentially life-threatening, mast-cell mediated, and often involve IgE antibodies, whereas food sensitivities are delayed reactions and elicit IgG antibodies. It is best practice to measure IgE and IgG antibodies together as they independently create inflammation and play a role in symptoms driven by food. A food can elicit an IgE sensitivity response, an IgG antibody response, or both.
