What about the AAAAI Statement that IgG testing should not be done?
The AAAAI Statement regarding Food Sensitivity testing with IgG specifically notes that this testing should not be considered a substitute for Food Allergy testing, which is done by measuring IgE reactivity levels.
We make it very clear that this test should not be considered or used by a customer to try and identify food allergies.
We also recognize that the AAAAI does not support any form of food sensitivity testing (which is not limited to IgG testing). However, the AAAAI is not the entire "medical community,” and does not speak for all health care providers. Everlywell believes providing this test aligns with relevant 3rd-party research around the IgG test’s usefulness in conjunction with an elimination diet.
Research is continuously evolving, and Everlywell is committed to incorporating new findings as they emerge.
