This test combines the 115 food IgG antibodies test and the Candida test to detect food allergies and precipitating antibodies to the infectious fungus Candida. Both tests are run on each patient sample.
Immuno IgG (115 foods):
The Immuno IgG test is designed to detect a patient's individual physiological sensitivity to 115 commonly eaten and allergy inducing foods. The test specifically measures IgG antibodies, which are often related to delayed food reactions or hidden food reactions. It can be complicated to detect hidden food allergies by diet alone, so this test offers a more specific look into the body’s functions.
Food allergies have been known to be the underlying, unrealized cause of numerous conditions. Many of these conditions are often considered chronic because specific food allergies are not realized to be the factor. Patients with conditions such as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), mood swings, PMS, depression, postnasal drip, headaches, obesity, otitis media, and autism eczema, may benefit from being tested for IgG antibodies and revealing potential food allergies.
Immuno Candida (Immunodiffusion & IgG):
The Candida Immunodiffusion test is an FDA approved procedure to detect precipitating antibodies to both Candida cytoplasmic and mannan antigen fractions. Agarose gel is used to reveal bands of precipitating antibodies (if present) in the patient's serum. Test results are reported as negative or positive; if positive, the number of bands is reported. The ELISA test offers high sensitivity and specificity in detecting early stage Polysystemic Chronic Candidiasis (P.C.C.) allowing prompt initiation of therapy. The Immunodiffusion test confirms late stage P.C.C. when antibody levels have risen significantly.
