Everyone knows that good nutrition starts with their diet. You might be eating healthy foods, but are you sure you are eating the right foods to keep your body healthy? Your body could be sensitive to certain foods despite their nutritional value.
Food sensitivities are your body’s unique reaction to proteins in foods that trigger an inflammatory response. They can cause headaches, ear infections, skin irritations, arthritis, and much more. Therefore, your body might have trouble processing certain foods. However, getting tested allows you to find out what foods you should avoid.
Common symptoms associated with IgG Food Sensitivity:
- Stomach pain
- Chronic ear infections
- Stuffy/runny nose
- Sinus problems
- Excessive mucous formation
- Dry skin
Here at the SCNM Medical Center, we offer IgG food sensitivity tests for 96 or 184 foods. This tests for IgG reactions and can provide a list of foods that a patient should avoid for some time. With IgG Ab, the body response is delayed. Symptoms of an IgG Ab are gradual and can take several hours to several days. This response differs from IgE, which is an immediate response and can occur within minutes after exposure to an allergen or food. The 96 Food Sensitivity Testing package is only $289, while the 184 Food Sensitivity package is $374.
The 96 and 184 Food Sensitivity Testing packages include:
• Specimen collection
• Result processing
• 96 or 184 IgG food panel
• 15-minute review of results with one of our physicians
