What is Food Sensitivity or Food Allergy Testing?
Food allergy blood testing is looking in your blood for antibodies that your immune system is making to attack food. When you make these antibodies, they bind to the triggering food creating an antibody-antigen complex. These complexes then deposit in your body and trigger inflammation and a variety of symptoms.
Signs You Need This Test:
- Autoimmune disorders like Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, IBD, Scleroderma, Sjogren’s, Raynaud’s
- Vitamin/mineral deficiencies
- Joint Pain
- Muscle Weakness
- Low immune function, weak immunity
- Head, nose, throat congestion
- Chronic sinus problems
What It Tells Us:
The test can tell us which foods specifically your immune system is attacking, and therefore, which ones are causing inflammation in your system.
