Food Intolerance Tests
E-Zlab is specialized in blood work & medical tests at home & work.
Food intolerances have become one of the most frequent problems in our society.
A person said to be intolerant to food or to allergens thus develops specific IgG antibodies in their body, which can be measured by a blood test.
In the event of a food intolerance various symptoms can arise such as skin breakouts, eczema, hives, eye or skin itching, eye watering, sneezing, a sensation of burning eye, running nose, nasal congestion, nasal sinus inflammation, distending and other bowel discomforts. These symptoms can affect the quality of your life significantly if no treatment is undergone.
A blood test can be run in order to determine one’s intolerances. An IgG antibody test can indicate whether you are intolerant to certain food items, animals, chemical products or other environmental allergens.
According to studies conducted by the British Allergy Foundation, 45 % of people in the United States and Europe suffer from food intolerance and only 3 % of theses cases display food allergy whose IgE antibodies are activated.
If food-type intolerances are identified, you can remedy this problem by changing your eating habits.
As previously mentioned, we also offer food intolerance tests.
