Could IgG food allergy testing from ImuPro be an option for you?Check it out
We all need food to supply our body with nutrients and energy so we can live a full and healthy life. Everyone is individual and has unique needs. This also applies to our nutrition: The foods that are good for you might be harmful for someone else and cause them problems.
There are many reasons why certain foodstuffs might not be well tolerated, causing symptoms such as bloating, diarrhoea, headaches or skin problems. One possible cause is an IgG food allergy (type III).
These delayed allergies can cause low-grade inflammatory conditions. Inflammatory processes in turn are thought to be possible triggers of different chronic diseases. Hence, IgG food allergy testing followed by an elimination and provocation diet may be a useful approach for individuals suffering from persistent ailments such as:
IgE-mediated food allergies (type I) may also be responsible for certain symptoms. However, the mechanisms and the way the immune system responds are significantly different compared to a type III allergy. Consequently, the symptoms may differ as well – even from person to person. A distinguishing factor is the time that elapses between ingestion of a food and appearance of the symptoms.
You will find an overview of possible symptoms below. Learn more about the differences and the mechanisms behind type I and type III food allergies.
|IgE Food Allergy||IgG Food Allergy|
|Time after ingestion||< 30 min||3 h – 3 days|
|Duration||1 day||up to 3 days/ chronic|
|Chronic iron deficiency||Bleeding excluded|
|Exhaustion 2 hours after eating||x|

Besides IgE- and IgG-mediated allergies, food intolerances may also cause health related problems. Intolerances are due to enzyme deficiencies, dysfunctions or malabsorption. In these cases, the immune system is not involved. The symptoms differ depending on which type of intolerance you may have.
