IgG food allergy

Causing symptoms such as migraine, obesity and Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

IgG food allergies could be the cause of chronic inflammatory ailments. The patient suffers from symptoms such as migraine, obesity, IBS, eczema, atopic dermatitis-like skin problems, constipation, flatulence, diarrhoea and Crohn´s disease. Symptoms related to IgG food allergy occur hours and even up to three days after ingestion of foodstuff which the immune system reacts to.

Development of IgG food allergies

An IgG food allergy, commonly called food intolerance, is a delayed inflammatory response to the ingestion of trigger foods mediated by IgG antibodies. During an IgG food allergy reaction the immune system produces specific IgG antibodies against food proteins. These antibodies can cause inflammatory processes, which can become chronic.

In a physiological state the immune system of the body fights off invading agents, usually bacteria, parasites and viruses. The largest part of the immune system is in the intestine. Over 80% of the immune defence reactions originate from the intestine. It guarantees an almost invincible barrier against invading agents as well as against other foreign proteins such as food proteins. The immune system tolerates food proteins completely, on the condition they are correctly digested and pass the intact intestinal barrier in the intended manner: namely through the intestinal cells.

However, due to medicines, infections, mycosis, stress and environmental poisons, the integrity of the intestinal wall can be damaged again and again. Food components can now slip between the intestinal cells. The immune system may then initiate an inflammatory immune reaction against these food proteins.


  • Intestinal wall is damaged:

    Food components can slip between  intestinal  cells

  • Immune system starts response:

    Formation of immune complexes

  • Immune complexes are destroyed I:

    Inflammatory process without tissue damage may result in systemic symptoms (e. g. hypertension, metabolic disorders)

  • Immune complexes are destroyed II:

    Inflammatory process with tissue damage may result in specific symptoms (e. g. IBS, migraine)

IgG food allergy testing can help your customers

More and more people come to the same conclusion and are striving to maintain a balanced and healthy diet. Additionally, more and more people suspect that certain foods cause them problems. However, it is not always easy to find the individual trigger food.
