Food Allergy Testing

Food sensitivities may be caused by many factors such as stress, infections, overeating, artificial preservatives, additives, molds, pesticides, antibiotics, and environmental pollutants.

 

Unidentified food sensitivities can contribute to many chronic health conditions:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

  • Rheumatoid arthritis

  • Headaches

  • Autism

  • ADD/ADHD

  • Eczema

  • Chronic ear infections

  • Gut mal-absorption

  • Insomnia

  • Many others.

Researchers estimate that up to 15 million Americans have food allergies. This potentially deadly disease affects 1 in every 13 children (under 18 years of age) in the U.S. That's roughly two in every classroom.

  • According to a study released in 2013 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, food allergies among children increased approximately 50% between 1997 and 2011.

  • The number of people who have a food allergy is growing, but there is no clear answer as to why.

  • Researchers are trying to discover why food allergies are on the rise in developed countries worldwide, and to learn more about the impact of the disease in developing nations. More than 17 million Europeans have a food allergy, and hospital admissions for severe reactions in children have risen seven-fold over the past decade, according to the European Academy of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (EAACI).

Blood tests measure the amount of IgG antibody to the specific food(s) being tested. Results are typically available in about a week and are reported as a numerical value. This is the method of testing we utilize here at Health+Plus.
