foodANALYZER by Access Medical Laboratories is a state-of-the-art food sensitivity test measuring total IgG antibodies for a vast array of food sources. foodANALYZER evaluates 286 food antigens using nano-bead technology on 1mL of serum. Results assist practitioners to curate diet and lifestyle guidance for their patients to reduce and eliminate symptoms related to adverse food reactions.
Food sensitivity is where the digestive system has a difficult time breaking down a certain type of food leading to discomfort, but is not a life-threatening condition. Food sensitivity is a digestive response, not an immune response as is with food allergies. The inability to break down certain types of foods can lead to anxiety, fatigue, gas, diarrhea, and other unpleasant symptoms. These symptoms can occur within a few hours after eating with the main source of relief coming from limiting or eliminating problem foods.
Digestive health is the key to total wellness. Understanding the IgG response from certain foods is a critical tool in shaping the diet to achieve complete gut health and overall wellness. While a food sensitivity is not a life threatening health risk, understanding your body’s sensitivities can improve your overall quality of life. Increase your awareness of what your body reacts to and make better food choices that will help alleviate symptoms you may not have realized were caused by foods.
