IgG Food Antibodies (87 IgG Foods + Total IgE)-Genova Kit

Note: This is a test kit that will be mailed to you. It requires a blood draw. It is your responsibility to arrange the blood draw for your kit and payment of your specimen collection.

Fasting Required: No

Specimen: Blood

Results: 7-10 business days

Note: Result turnaround times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.

Special Instructions: It is suggested that the patient eat a variety of foods for 2-3 weeks prior to food antibody testing (except for foods that are known to cause severe reactions). Doing so will help to ensure the presence of antibodies to allergenic foods. Interfering factors to the antibody test: Glucocorticosteroids (e.g., oral prednisone and/or steroid metered-dose inhaler), chemotherapy, and immunosuppressive medications. Non-interfering factors to the antibody test: antibiotics, antihistamines, and antidepressants. Test may be inaccurate if the patient has liver damage or HIV infection.

Description: IgG Food Antibody Assessment is a food sensitivity test which helps identify those with true IgE-mediated allergies as well as IgG-mediated food sensitivities. This immunological food sensitivity test measures IgG antibody levels to 87 foods, and total IgE. Additional sensitivity tests are also available for regional inhalants, molds, vegetables, and spices. This antibody food sensitivity test is ideal for patients who may suffer from delayed reactions/sensitivities to specific foods. It may also provide insight on intolerances, or non-immune responses, to certain foods. Additionally, the IgG Food Antibody Assessment includes information on implementing an Elimination Diet based on the patient test results.
