Food Sensitivity Test

What is a Food Sensitivity Test?

Both men and women suffer from food sensitivity, which is a diffuse, and sometimes delayed reaction to certain foods in your current diet. The Food Sensitivity Test detects IgG antibodies in your blood against 96 common foods. Elevated antibodies may indicate that you could be sensitive to that food. This test does not detect IgE antibodies that are associated with allergic reactions to foods, such as lactose intolerance or celiac disease.

Related symptoms include:

  • Tiredness
  • Bloating
  • Gastrointestinal discomfort
  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Stomach pain

 

What Do I Need to Do to Prepare for the Test?

It is always important to avoid foods(s) that you are allergic to or that you know make you feel poorly. If you suspect that you may have a severe allergic reaction to any suspect food, DO NOT eat it and contact your healthcare practitioner. Consuming a broad diet for 4-5 weeks prior to conducting a food sensitivity test, while safely avoiding known food allergies will provide the broadest reactivity results.

Just a simple finger stick, to collect a few drops of whole blood, is all that is required. It is best to hydrate well prior to collection to ensure good blood flow.

What Do the Results Mean?

Food sensitivity testing helps you discover which foods in your diet may be contributing to your symptoms. This test measures your immune system’s reactivity to foods, which can help guide a temporary elimination diet.

The classification of 0 to 3 denotes the level of antibody reactivity detected for each food. Use of immunosuppressant medications may reduce your classification by one level or more and could produce a false negative result. Never discontinue any prescription medications without consulting your doctor first. If you are experiencing symptoms related to a specific food at any level, that is your threshold.

Experts generally recommend:

  • No Reaction (0) – eat freely
  • Low (1) – eat every 4th day

For the following classifications, do not eat for 3-6 months:

  • Moderate (2)
  • High (3)

In 3-6 months, re-introduce one food at a time and monitor to determine if symptoms return. If symptoms return, cease eating that food and re-introduce again in 3-6 months. If symptoms continue, remove that food from your diet.

This test alone cannot confirm a food sensitivity or intolerance. Experts recommend that you follow up with a licensed healthcare professional or allergist to review your results along with your medical history, symptoms, diet and other test results prior to making nutrition changes.

    Found out I’m allergic to something I didn’t even know was a thing and I feel so much better after eliminating it from my diet. I would highly recommend for anyone who’s struggling with weird general symptoms that don’t make sense. A small price to pay for getting my life back!

    I think this test is very easy to do and the test results are easy to read and understand. I also would like to compliment the customer support team for all the help they gave me. My first test kit got lost by USPS I was kindly sent a brand new test kit for free. They were very patient with all my concerns and questions no matter how dumb they might have been. As far as pain goes, I did get a bit of bruising on my finger pad from the lance which lasted for several days, but that was a minor inconvenience all things considered. If you are concerned about the foods you are eating, I highly recommend this kit as a starting point, and this company for their stellar communications.

    I don’t think this test was accurate. I feel gross every time after I eat and this test said I don’t have allergies to anything. Seems like a total waste of money for me.

    I ordered the food sensitivity test to see if tomatoes or other foods were causing the horrible bloating I’ve been experiencing. Everything pretty much was low to very low, except for all dairy, eggs, almonds, and lima beans. I was not thrilled about the eggs scoring High. I eat a hard boiled egg daily as my lunch, a wee brie wedge with vegggies, and a few tablespoons of half and half with ny coffee. So I guess the small items I do eat after intermittent fasting are causing the bloating. I swore it was tomatoes!! The test was easy to do. I don’t agree that it was painless. I don’t mind needles at all, but this one hurt. But it did the trick and the blood was flowing to get it done quickly. The results came pretty quickly after the lab received it. Overall, I’m very happy with the purchase and have some thinking to do to see if I can give up my daily egg and truely see if it makes a difference or not.

    I have been suffering from stomach and gastrointestinal upset for a number of years, but I have never been able to understand why! Even though I am a Type II Diabetic and take Metformin for this, my doctors have been very hesitant to assign blame on the drug for my problem. They even put me on the Low FODMAP diet, which is a regimen where you take a whole host of foods out of your diet and then add them back in one at a time until you figure out which one is making you sick. Well, it didn’t work for me, and I am still sick. So, I sent for the myLAB Box Food Sensitivity Test, which tests your sensitivity test to 96 different foods (dairy, meats & fish, fruits, vegetables, grains & nuts, herbs, spices, yeast – you name it!) And, guess what: I was only moderately sensitive to four different items on the list (almonds, bananas, baker’s/brewer’s yeast and Candida albicans). So, armed with this test now, I can go back to my doctor and show that it is NOT my diet that is making me ill. Thank you, myLAB Box!!!
