What is a Food Sensitivity Test?
Both men and women suffer from food sensitivity, which is a diffuse, and sometimes delayed reaction to certain foods in your current diet. The Food Sensitivity Test detects IgG antibodies in your blood against 96 common foods. Elevated antibodies may indicate that you could be sensitive to that food. This test does not detect IgE antibodies that are associated with allergic reactions to foods, such as lactose intolerance or celiac disease.
Related symptoms include:
- Gastrointestinal discomfort
- Stomach pain
What Do I Need to Do to Prepare for the Test?
It is always important to avoid foods(s) that you are allergic to or that you know make you feel poorly. If you suspect that you may have a severe allergic reaction to any suspect food, DO NOT eat it and contact your healthcare practitioner. Consuming a broad diet for 4-5 weeks prior to conducting a food sensitivity test, while safely avoiding known food allergies will provide the broadest reactivity results.
Just a simple finger stick, to collect a few drops of whole blood, is all that is required. It is best to hydrate well prior to collection to ensure good blood flow.
What Do the Results Mean?
Food sensitivity testing helps you discover which foods in your diet may be contributing to your symptoms. This test measures your immune system’s reactivity to foods, which can help guide a temporary elimination diet.
The classification of 0 to 3 denotes the level of antibody reactivity detected for each food. Use of immunosuppressant medications may reduce your classification by one level or more and could produce a false negative result. Never discontinue any prescription medications without consulting your doctor first. If you are experiencing symptoms related to a specific food at any level, that is your threshold.
Experts generally recommend:
- No Reaction (0) – eat freely
- Low (1) – eat every 4th day
For the following classifications, do not eat for 3-6 months:
- Moderate (2)
- High (3)
In 3-6 months, re-introduce one food at a time and monitor to determine if symptoms return. If symptoms return, cease eating that food and re-introduce again in 3-6 months. If symptoms continue, remove that food from your diet.
This test alone cannot confirm a food sensitivity or intolerance. Experts recommend that you follow up with a licensed healthcare professional or allergist to review your results along with your medical history, symptoms, diet and other test results prior to making nutrition changes.
