From a simple finger stick, the Bloodspot IgG4 Food Antibodies Profile offers a non-invasive alternative to a blood draw in determining IgG food reactions. Responses to 30 different foods are tested, and responses are categorized by severity from borderline to mild, moderate, or severe on the report.
IgG4 antibodies are associated with non-atopic or "delayed" food reactions that can worsen or contribute to many health conditions. Food sensitivities can occur at any age, triggering a wide range of symptoms. The Bloodspot IgG4 Food Antibody Profile measures levels of IgG4 antibodies specific to 30 commonly offending foods clearly identifying foods causing patient reactions. Testing aids the clinician in the specific dietary change that is needed, helping to achieve positive outcomes sooner, even when combined with elimination or provocation testing.
