Food Allergy and Intolerance Test – In-person
Total IgE and IgG4 Level
Our comprehensive test covers the main staple foods and more. Not only do we test for fruits, meat, fish, wheat, dairy etc, but we also check for many types of artificial ingredients. This test is perfect for people who are unsure about what their specific intolerances may be, and want a thorough check on a range of food items including chemicals and preservatives. Allergies are an over-reaction of your immune system to substances which it selects as a threat. It usually involves a sudden spike release of antibodies called IgE antibodies and chemicals called histamine which give the classic signs of itching, sneezing, runny eyes and nose, diarrhoea, bloating etc. A blood test for IgE and IgG4 antibodies can be helpful in diagnosing an allergy, or food intolerance.
