A food allergy is where your body reacts to certain foods. It’s often mild, but can be very serious for some people.
Check if it’s a food allergy
Symptoms of a food allergy can affect any part of the body, including different parts of the body at the same time.
Common symptoms of a food allergy include:
- feeling dizzy or lightheaded
- itchy skin or a raised rash (hives)
- swelling of the lips, face and eyes (angioedema)
- coughing, wheezing, breathlessness, noisy breathing or a hoarse voice
- sneezing or an itchy, runny or blocked nose
- feeling sick or being sick
- stomach or abdominal pain
You may get symptoms straight after eating the food you’re allergic to, or days later.

IgE Food Allergy Test(93) + Inhalants
Type one, or “classic”, allergy causes redness, swelling, and heat in the body as a result of the elevated blood levels of Immunoglobulin E (IgE). Contrary to popular belief, the symptoms produced by IgE can be subtle and similar to those seen in other conditions. This potential confusion makes diagnostic testing very important in recognizing the offending source.
RECOMMENDED FOR PATIENTS WITH
Acne, Eczema, Rashes
Autism Spectrum Disorders
Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Leaky Gut Syndrome
Tic Disorders / Tourette’s Syndrome
Serum: 8 mL of serum in a gold-topped SST or royal blue-topped no additive tube. The elimination of a food will reduce the ability for our laboratory to detect antibodies (allergies) to that food.
- This test is and advance profile which also tests for (35) common inhalants
IGE FOOD ALLERGY ADVANCED: 93 foods + Inhalants
Understanding IgE Reactions
Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies trigger histamine release and mast cell activation, which is the typical, classic allergy.
Most people recognize hives and rashes, redness and swelling, or allergic rhinitis as allergic reactions. Human responses to both food and inhalant protein antigens vary widely in intensity, even to the point of dangerous anaphylaxis.
IgE is usually present in very small amounts, but risk of severe reactions is assumed to increase along with increasing amounts of IgE. Genetics appear to influence the tendency to have allergies. Exposure to microbes, various foods, and environmental allergens may all provoke an IgE response as well.
Serum IgE tests measure levels of IgE antibodies in the blood. When IgE antibodies bind to specific receptors on mast cells and other white blood cells, an allergic reaction occurs.
High levels of IgE antibodies indicate that the patient is likely to experience physiological effects from ingesting foods or inhaling environmental allergens to which they are sensitive.
The Importance of IgE Testing
Eliminating IgE-positive foods and reducing exposure to inhalant allergens may help alleviate many symptoms and disorders triggered by food and environmental sources. The Great Plains Laboratory (GPL) offers both basic and advanced serum panels for specific IgE antibodies to a wide range of allergens.
Test results show which foods and inhalants are associated with elevated IgE antibodies that may cause reactions. These results help guide health practitioners in customizing therapies for their patients.
Although IgE allergies are most often associated with immediate and easily discernible reactions, not all IgE responses are so identifiable. Antibody testing is an important adjunct to patient symptom reporting in identifying triggers.
