The incidence of food sensitivities has increased dramatically over the years. It is estimated that up to 20% of the population have adverse reactions to foods.

This is a food allergy test which analyzes serum levels of IgE antibodies for 19 combined foods, as well as Total IgE. This is an ideal food allergy test for patients who may suffer an immediate reaction (allergy) or non-immune response to specific foods, such as peanuts or shellfish. 

The IgE Allergic Response

The IgE allergic response is the most well-known food allergy reaction. IgE food allergy reactions usually occur immediately after the ingestion of offending foods, such as peanuts or shellfish. The IgE Food Antibody Profile measures levels of antigen-specific IgE to common foods.
