Does my current diet impact the Food Sensitivity results? Do I need to ingest foods that I think I may react to prior to testing?
The food sensitivity test involves taking your blood and exposing it to various foods to assess for an immune reaction generating certain types of antibodies. While generally these reactions are driven by the food, if you have previously eliminated or sharply reduced a food from your diet, your body may generate less reaction to it.
Having elevated levels of IgG reaction to a certain food does not necessarily mean you have an intolerance, but research shows that by eliminating foods that cause an IgG reaction, you can potentially improve certain food-related symptoms, including gastrointestinal distress, headaches, and inflammatory disorders such as asthma or eczema.
