IgG (immunoglobulin G) test results can aid in the structuring of elimination diets that may relieve symptoms of many chronic neurological, gastrointestinal, and movement disorders. IgG antibodies are present in all body fluids and serve as a first line of defense against infections, but do not release histamine or produce familiar immediate hypersensitivity reaction of itching, hives, flushing, or sneezing associated with classic IgE allergic reactions. In Contrast, IgG antibodies may have more subtle immune effects, ranging from gastrointestinal bloating and nausea to headaches, mood changes, and fatigue. Unknowingly, people may continue to eat "offending" foods, not connecting delayed reactions to the foods eaten hours or days before. 

By measuring IgG antibodies specific to antigenic proteins, it is possible to identify which foods may be responsible for hard-to-define symptoms. The 93 foods tested in the IgG Food Allergy Test with Candida include representatives of major food groups common the western diet. Elimination of IgG-positive foods can improve symptoms pf irritable bowel syndrome, autism, ADHD, cystic fibrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and epilepsy, according to numerous clinical studies. 

Please note that the elimination diet is based only on IgG testing. To be safe, testing for IgE antibodies to food allergens should be considered PRIOR TO BEGINNING an ELIMINATION DIET. IF a patient has negative results for IgG antibodies, it does not necessarily mean he/she is negative for IgE, IgM, or IgA antibodies. 

Mosiac Diagnostics has added Candida to the IgG Food Allergy Test. Candida problems are thought to be caused when the benign yeast form of Candida albicans or other Candida species mutates to its fungal form.

 can overgrow portions or the intestinal mucosa, causing numerous symptoms. If allowed to grow out of balance, the toxins produced by Candida can create minute holes in the intestinal lining, leading to "leaky gut" syndrome. When Candida or its byproducts enter the blood, Candida contributes to a chronic inflammatory immune system response (CIRS). A wide range of disorders have been linked to Candida, including autism, multiple sclerosis, depression, and chronic fatigue. Use of oral antibiotics, oral contraceptives, chemotherapy, and anti-inflammatory steroids greatly increase susceptibility to Candida. 

The IgG Food Allergy Test + Candida helps determine if food reactions are contributing to physical/ mental symptoms. 

 

Includes testing, interpretation, and a plan of action based on your results. 

 

**Once the test is purchased, please call our office at 308-386-4799. You will need to set up an new patinet appointment  and a follow up visit to go over results after the test is completed. Insurance does not pay for the functional test, but the medical portion of your visit is often covered by insurance. We do recommend setting up an extended visit to go over results, as there is a lot of information, this additonal time will be out of pocket.
