Description

Difficult to know if you have an allergy or a food intolerance? Our allergy and food intolerance test tests you for a total of 78 different substances, in addition to food you are also tested for allergies to e.g. fur animals such as dogs, cats and horses.

Food intolerance means that you are hypersensitive to specific substances, which can cause symptoms after a couple of hours or even several days later, unlike allergies, where the symptoms often appear immediately. Therefore, it can be difficult to know if you have a food intolerance or food intolerance as it is also called.

This is how it works: The test is carried out by our staff at the clinic and takes place through capillary sampling (prick in the finger) where we take out a couple of drops of blood.

Sample response: You normally have a response within 15 working days after our lab receives your sample. The test answer is sent digitally to your e-mail. Together with your test answer, you will receive a detailed report in English about your values.

To think about: It is important that you have been exposed to the tested substances included within the last three months, if they have passed longer there is a risk that it will not give as strong a result on the test result.

Information

Allergy or food intolerance? Here's the difference - and common symptoms

This test measures IgE antibodies for allergy and IgG4 antibodies for food intolerance. They are two different systems – allergy is about an immune response, while food intolerance is about a stomach/intestinal reaction. This means that you can get a rash on a food for allergy, but nothing on food intolerance, or on the contrary that you are intolerant to a substance but not allergic.

Allergy

Many people think of allergy as a very strong reaction, but food allergies can also cause mild symptoms such as slightly red eyes or the occasional runny nose. While allergy is about a reaction in the immune system, food intolerance is a so-called gastrointestinal reaction. Food intolerance can cause both mild and severe symptoms with everything from stomach upset to fatigue, brain fog and depression.

Common symptoms of allergy are:

  • ✓ Runny nose
  • ✓ Itchy and/or red eyes
  • ✓ Sneezing
  • ✓ Swelling around the eyes or mouth/throat
  • ✓ Skin problems such as eczema

Food intolerance

A food intolerance or hypersensitivity reaction is often about a stomach/intestinal reaction. The body also produces antibodies here, but these are called IgG antibodies. The symptoms usually take several hours to sometimes several days before they appear and can be mild and diffuse but still very bothersome. Because it takes longer for the symptoms to appear, it is often more difficult to discover for yourself what you are intolerant to, especially if you react to several different things.

Common symptoms of food intolerance are:

  • ✓ Fatigue
  • ✓ Stomach discomfort
  • ✓ Brain fog
  • ✓ Skin problems
  • ✓ Headache

Both allergies and food intolerances are measured in blood.

ELISA method

The food intolerance test takes place via the ELISA method. ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) is an analytical technique designed to detect and quantify soluble substances such as peptides, proteins, antibodies and hormones. In an ELISA, the antigen (target macromolecule) is immobilized on a solid surface (microplate) and then complexed with an antibody linked to a reporter enzyme. Detection is accomplished by measuring the activity of the reporter enzyme via incubation with the appropriate substrate to produce a measurable product. The most crucial element in an ELISA is a highly specific antibody-antigen interaction.
