Immunoglobulin G Test | igg Testing in Mumbai – Dietwise

At Dietwise, we’ve partnered with an internationally acclaimed laboratory to ensure the most accurate results for your food sensitivity testing.Our tests measure immunoglobulin levels, including immunoglobulin g test antibodies, to identify potential food sensitivities that may be impacting your health.


Understanding Food Sensitivities vs. Allergies

When you experience a food reaction, your immune system might release antibodies. Foods triggering these antibodies are called antigens or allergens. Two key antibodies involved in food reactions are:

  • IgE (immunoglobulin E): Classic food allergies are mediated by IgE. These reactions are immediate (within minutes) due to histamine release, causing symptoms like puffy eyes, hives, and anaphylaxis. These allergies are typically easier to recognize.
  • IgG (immunoglobulin G): Food sensitivities are often mediated by IgG. These reactions can be delayed by hours or even days, making them more challenging to identify. IgG sensitivities can contribute to various chronic health conditions.

Food Intolerances vs. Sensitivities – Dietwise

Food intolerances differ from sensitivities. They involve digestive issues rather than the immune system. Common symptoms include gastrointestinal, skin, and respiratory problems. Food additives and enzyme deficiencies (like lactose intolerance) are common causes.

Diagnosis and Treatment – Dietwise

Diagnosis involves an IgG test to identify foods with higher IgG antibody release. These foods are then eliminated from your diet for a specific period and reintroduced while monitoring IgG levels. Elimination diets require careful planning with a healthcare professional to avoid nutritional deficiencies.

IgG-based diets have shown effectiveness in managing various conditions, including:

  • Skin ailments
  • Gastrointestinal problems
  • Food intolerances
  • Chronic weight management challenges

At Dietwise, we offer a comprehensive range of tests to support your health journey, including:

IgG stands for Immunoglobulin G, a type of protein produced by your immune system in response to substances it recognizes as foreign. In the context of food, IgG antibodies can be present due to frequent consumption of a particular food.

This test measures the level of IgG antibodies in your blood against a panel of common food antigens. The idea is that high levels of IgG against a specific food might indicate a food intolerance.

Symptoms can vary but may include bloating, gas, fatigue, headaches, skin problems, and joint pain. It’s important to note that these symptoms can also be caused by other conditions.

The accuracy of IgG testing for food intolerance is controversial. There is limited scientific evidence to support its use as a diagnostic tool.

If interpreted cautiously, IgG testing might offer some clues about potential food sensitivities. However, it should not be solely relied upon for diagnosis.

The test may produce false positive results, indicating intolerance where none exists. Additionally, IgG antibodies don’t necessarily equate to intolerance symptoms.

If you experience chronic digestive issues and traditional allergy testing is inconclusive, you might discuss IgG testing with your doctor. However, their guidance is crucial.

Elimination diets, where you remove suspected trigger foods and gradually reintroduce them, can be a more reliable way to identify food intolerances.

The cost can vary depending on the lab and the number of foods included in the panel. Generally, it’s not covered by insurance.

Discuss the results with your doctor. They can help you interpret the findings and determine if further evaluation or dietary changes are necessary.
