Blood testing for Allergies

At Allergy Test Ireland, we have partnered up with Global Testing Labs to test for allergies (IgE) and sensitivities (IgG4) using a CE marked in-vitro testing system. Supplying you with a lancet, blood is drawn and exposed in vitro to a panel of foods and non-food items. To a degree, a total immunoglobin G (IgG) antibody is then bonded to each food and is quantified via enzyme or fluorescence-linked immunosorbent assays.

Allergy Test Ireland blood tests through Global Testing Labs test for IgG4 and this binding is measured against total IgG. The results of blood testing for allergies or intolerances, (depending on which test you have chosen) are then reported to you via email and you can see what foods you are intolerant to.

As a result of food intolerance testing, the complexes will get larger. This means that your larger complexes are able to activate the complement cascade, which in turn initiates inflammatory responses in the body, and thus they are detectable through blood testing.

The inflammatory response to a food is the main cause of intolerance symptoms, in this type of food reactions which result from food intolerances. These complexes can also then be deposed in tissue or organs, leading to damage, which can cause uncomfortable and nuisance symptoms to an individual. If you are experiencing symptoms like bloating, headaches, or stomach upset then you need to order an allergy test today to find out everything you need to know about food intolerances.

From here, a sequence of events means that individuals develop adverse reactions to foods, which are a regular item in their daily or weekly diet. This is when an intolerance is developed and through our blood analysis, we are able to identify whether or not you have a food intolerance. Blood testing for allergies helps us to help the customer improve their health and lifestyle.

Showing themselves to be more adhesive, IgG1 antibodies can be bonded to any antigens. This increases the possibility of cross-reactivity and therefore, there is a lesser number of false-positive results within our blood testing for allergies or intolerances. This means that testing both IgG1 and IgG4 leads to many unnecessary food eliminations.

As an antibody, the IgG4 antibody is a more clinically applicable marker of chronic food-immune reactions and of possible intestinal hyperpermeability. Between IgG1 and IgG4 measurements are less likely to produce false-positives on in-vitro tests. Similarly, when measuring all ranges of IgG, or total IgG, and it is more likely that these all produce a high rate of false-positive reactions.
