•   Food intolerance occurs with the foods you eat most often.

•   Most people are unaware that they are eating foods that make them sick.

•   IgG reactions are much more common than IgE reactions, affecting as many as 1/3 of the general population.

•   IgG reactions that cause food intolerance take hours to days to develop; making them very difficult to uncover without testing.

•   More than 100 diseases and conditions are associated with  food intolerance.

•   More than 2/3 of people with chronic health conditions have IgG reactions to food.

Blood spot testing for IgG provides a simple, painless and practical means for practitioners to uncover potential causes of allergic reactions and allergy related disease. Specific IgG quantification has been utilized in research settings to assess and investigate Type I and Type III allergies respectively. IgG reactions develop slowly, up to several hours or days after exposure to a food allergen, so testing is often the only way of determining which foods are responsible.
