Food Sensitivity Testing & Analysis in Markham

IgG/IgA Food Sensitivity and Celiac Profile Testing

Blood spot testing for IgG/IgA provides a simple and practical means to uncover foods causing allergic reactions and allergy related disease.
IgG reactions develop slowly, up to several hours or days after exposure to a food allergen, so testing is often the only way of determining which foods are responsible.

Elevated IgA to specific foods is widely believed to be a sign of damage to the mucous membranes in the gut such as individuals with Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis or leaky gut.
The allergy test report graphs IgG/IgA immune response to each of the tested food allergens. Reactions are categorized as no, low, moderate or high.

Why test for food intolerance?

  • food intolerance occurs with the foods you eat most often
  • most people are unaware that they are eating foods that make them sick
  • IgG/IgA reactions are much more common than IgE (immediate/anaphylactic) reactions
  • more than 2/3 of people with chronic health conditions have IgG/IgA reactions to food
