Food Allergy is one of the root cause of chronic inflammation and inflammatory reactions
With IgG food allergies (type III), the immune system reacts to harmless food allergens and produces specific IgG antibodies. Due to medicines, infections, mycosis, stress and environmental poisons, the integrity of the intestinal wall can be damaged and food components can slip between the intestinal cells. In some cases, this triggers an immune response and the immune system starts to produce specific IgG antibodies against them.
These antibodies and the food antigens form immune complexes which can adhere to organs and tissues. When the immune complexes are destroyed by phagocytic cells and the complement system, the surrounding tissues can be damaged. This leads to low-grade inflammatory conditions which can become chronic. The symptoms are delayed.
A delayed Food Allergy Test Type III is performed to find out if your body has an intolerance or is having delayed allergic reaction to any food stuffs. The test is done in Germany which is the world’s largest Food Allergy test lab. It’s a simple blood test and the sample is collected from the comfort of your house and the serum is sent to Germany for testing. Post test results an elimination protocol is followed to overcome the symptom’s and reduce chronic inflammation.

The third method adopted in identifying allergy-causing food is the elimination test. A doctor understands your food habits thoroughly and depending on the symptoms, advises few food items to be removed from the diet for few days and then adds them again. This will be tested to see if the allergic symptoms disappear when the food items are eliminated and appear back when they re-introduced in the diet. This will help the doctor diagnose which food is not tolerated by your digestive system.
An elimination diet can help your doctor determine which foods are causing the allergic reactions. Depending on the results of these tests, medications and treatment will be prescribed.
