All About Food Allergy & Sensitivity Testing 

Food allergies and food sensitivities are abnormal responses to a food component triggered by the immune system in the form of immunoglobulins (IgE, IgG, IgA), representing either an immediate or delayed response.

An immediate reaction is a rapid onset. If you have symptoms like wheezing, throat tightening, nausea, diarrhea or cramps, or coughing, this is an immediate reaction. These reactions are associated with fixed food allergies. These are reactions that will always happen you ingest those foods.

Food sensitivities on the other hand happen gradually and aren't life threatening. They can take up to 72 hours to appear. They can be caused by many different factors; stress, additives, molds, antibiotics, infections, and overeating are just some of these factors. Food sensitivities can contribute to chronic health conditions like Rheumatoid arthritis, IBS, migraines/headaches, eczema, as well as many other health conditions.
