Principle of Food Allergy Test
Novel Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay –ELISA able to test the level of antibodies and your body’s responses to 96 (maximum 204) international foods from a small amount of blood sample. We can test the level of IgE and IgG which trigger immediate and delayed allergic reactions respectively. This test helps you to identify the foods that cause allergic reactions so that you can avoid them. The test may also show foods you are not allergic to, these can then be added to your diet. Together with your personalized rotating diet plan and our nutritional advice, the test can prevent a variety of allergic symptoms.
We employ the most accurate and reliable technique, Enzyme-linked Immunosorbent Assay –ELISA, for our service
Traditoinal skin prick test has blind spots which is not accurate and comprehensive enough to test for food allergies !
According to the US National Library of Medicine Database https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/, the following clinical researches state that avoidance of allergic food which trigger delayed onset food allergy can help to improve a number of allergic symptoms:
