The IgA food sensitivity testing panel offered is a convenient home collection kit that screens for 96 commonly consumed foods. IgA antibodies are produced in the greatest quantity in a day. This is one of the most important antibodies as it is the bodies’ first line of defence against viruses and bacteria. Testing for IgA antibodies against specific foods may be raised when the lining of the intestinal tract, the mucous membrane, become inflamed or damaged. Elevated IgA to specific foods can be a sign of damage to the mucous membranes in the gut. Individuals with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, or even those with suspected leaky gut may benefit from testing IgA food reactions.
The results are patient specific and provide an easy, precise and effective starting point for dietary manipulation.
The benefits of food sensitivity testing are:
- It will help determine if food reactions are contributing to physical or mental symptoms, and much more quickly than eliminating and then reintroducing each suspect food one by-one over a period of time
- Eliminating all identified food allergens after testing can reduce stress on the immune system, decrease inflammation (helping to heal “leaky gut”), resolve food cravings, and reduce the potential for eating disorders
