What is a comprehensive food sensitivity test?
Unlike a food allergy test, a food sensitivity test measures the subtle response of body’s IgG antibodies to common ingredients in the food. These are the foods that may not be making you sick but uncomfortable when ingested. The comprehensive food sensitivity test includes most of the commonly found ingredients in American diet.
Why measure food sensitivity?
Once you find out that your body is producing immunoglobulin G (IgG) protein antibodies in response to certain foods, you can reduce or eliminate the consumption of those food items. The food sensitivity is measured on scale of 0 to 3 (zero means no sensitivity and 3 means high sensitivity).
Common symptoms of food sensitivity include bloating, unease, nausea, headache, mood swing, and fatigue. One common example is lactose intolerance when people feel bloated after consuming milk.
Testing for food sensitivity can help improve quality of life by eliminating foods or rotating them on a regular basis. The simplicity of test is that once your results are received, you can eliminate suspect food items to confirm how they have been affecting you.
