Blood Spot IgG Food Antibody by Metametrix 30 Foods. IgG antibodies are associated with non-atopic or delayed", food reactions that can worsen or contribute to many different health problems. These reactions are more difficult to notice since they can occur hours or even days after consumption of an offending food.
In some cases, a person may eat a food for several days before developing a reaction to it, so they may not realize the link between the food and their symptoms. These hidden food allergies are caused by increasing IgG antibody blood levels in reaction to specific foods. Often the offenders are frequently eaten foods that are hard to avoid, such as milk, corn, and wheat. Simultaneous high levels of many IgG food-specific antibodies are generally related to intestinal hyperpermeability.
