Why don’t I already know if I have a food sensitivity?
Food sensitivity symptoms are often delayed, and may present hours later or even the next day after consumption. The usual scenario is that many of the foods that cause reactions for many people are so commonly consumed (wheat, dairy, eggs) that it is difficult to connect the symptom with a particular food.
What is the difference between IgE and IgG testing?
When the immune system recognizes a foreign substance, it produces antibodies to fight off the allergens. There are two different types of antibodies produced in allergic reactions to food, Ige and IgG. IgE reactions are immediate and usually more severe, such as hives, swelling of the tongue and sudden diarrhea. IgG reactions are more common and more subtle and can result in many other delayed symptoms such as chronic pain, sinusitis, constipation, diarrhea, bloating, gas, fatigue and abdominal pain.
