The above image is p.1 of a
sample report for IgG and IgA
antibody testing for 96 different
foods. Click on it to see the
entire report.

Some great information regarding food reactions and antibodies comes from
Rocky Mountain Analytical (owned by CML Health Care - which is owned by
Life Labs).
 Click here for information from Rocky Mountain about the
different antibodies involved in food sensitivity reactions and scroll down to the
bottom of the page to view research and literature about food sensitivities.

Different laboratories produce different reports.  A couple of example reports
from two different labs are below.  Click on them to see the full report.

Common Symptoms of Food Sensitivities

  • Do you become bloated or gassy after eating?
  • Do you suffer from joint pain, anxiety or depression, runny nose or
    watery eyes?
  • Do you have acne, eczema or psoriasis?
  • Do you regularly get heartburn, acid reflux or other digestive problems?
  • How about loss of interest in life, weight gain, irritability or sleep

Many common symptoms can be attributed to hidden food sensitivities. Refer
to the
list of symptoms to see if you have potential food sensitivities or allergies.

How Do We Do Testing?

*See the image to the right of the page

  • Your finger is poked with a lancet and the drop of blood goes onto strips
    that get shipped to a lab.

What Is The Lab Looking For?

  • The lab looks for IgG and IgA antibodies to 96 foods.
  • There is also a Celiac panel where the lab looks for IgG and IgA
    antibodies to gliadin (part of the gluten molecule), which is considered a
    gluten intolerance, and to the enzyme that breaks down gliadin, called
    transglutaminase. Reactions to transglutaiminase is an auto-immune
    reaction that is seen in people with Celiac disease.

Food Protein Cross Reactivities

  • The immune system creates different types of antibodies to foods and
    pollens in the environment or other types of proteins such as dust mites,
    etc... Every food has thousands of different proteins and some of these
    have cross-reactivities to other different proteins from pollens, etc....
  • Some foods even cross react with other things. For example, bananas
    have a cross-reactivity to latex. Crab has a cross-reactivity to dust mites.

great chart on food cross-reactivities. Click

Gluten and Auto-Immune Disorders

  • The proteins in food may be complex. There is growing research on the
    connection of food sensitivities and the development of various diseases.  
  • This article from Cyrex Laboratories  discusses the different proteins
    found in wheat gluten and their significance in the development of Auto-
    Immune disorders.
