Description

Do you experience or suspect that you are hypersensitive to certain foods? Through an analysis of IgG4 antibodies for 40 different foods that can often create a hypersensitivity reaction such as stomach ache, you can get answers on whether you have a food intolerance and against which food or foods.

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 come immediately. Therefore, it can be difficult to know if you have a food intolerance or food intolerance as it is also called.

Here's how it works: The test is performed by our staff at the reception and takes place through capillary sampling (stick in the finger) where we take out a couple of blood drops.

Test answer: You normally have an answer within 15 working days after our lab received your test. 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.

Things to keep in mind: It is important that you have been exposed to the tested substances included within the last three months, if they have been used for a long time there is a risk that it will not have an equally strong effect on the test result.

Information

Find out what food intolerance you have

Do you experience hypersensitivity to certain substances? Does the reaction often come immediately or does it take a couple of hours or days before it occurs after you have ingested a certain food? It is sometimes difficult to know what you are reacting to even if you try to map it when the symptoms occur. Our food intolerance test analyzes IgG4 antibodies for 40 different foods that can often create a hypersensitivity reaction.

To find out what food intolerance you may have it is important that you have been exposed to the tested substances included within the last three months, if it has been longer there is a risk that there will not be an equally strong effect on the test result.

The food intolerance test (IgG4) measures the following foods:

  • ✓ Salmon, Cod, Herring, Shrimp and Mussel
  • ✓ Pork, Beef, Chicken, Egg White and Egg Yolk
  • ✓ Wheat, Rye, Oats, Rice and Buckwheat
  • ✓ Corn, Amaranth, Carrot, Celery, Cabbage, Garlic, Onions, Green Peas, Green Beans, Tomato, Cucumber and Potato
  • ✓ Soy and Mustard
  • ✓ Peanut, Hazelnut, Walnut and Almond
  • ✓ Milk, Goat Milk and Sheep Milk
  • ✓ Orange, Banana, Apple and Kiwi

The ELISA method

The food intolerance test is performed 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 a suitable substrate to produce a measurable product. The most crucial element of an ELISA is a very specific antibody-antigen interaction.

What is the difference between food intolerance and allergies?

Food allergies and food intolerances are two completely different things. Many people think of allergies as a very strong reaction, but food allergies can also cause mild symptoms such as a little red eyes or that the nose runs from time to time. 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

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. Since 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.
