It is suggested that the patient eat a variety of foods for 2-3 weeks prior to food antibody testing (except for foods that are known to cause severe reactions). Doing so will help to ensure the presence of antibodies to allergenic foods.
Interfering factors to the antibody test: Glucocorticosteroids (e.g., oral
prednisone and/or steroid metered-dose inhaler), chemotherapy, and immunosuppressive medications.
Non-interfering factors to the antibody test: antibiotics, antihistamines, and antidepressants.
Results: <br\>7-10 business days
Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
Not only does this test check for allergies but it also tests for a body’s intolerance to foods. IgG checks for intolerances and IgE for allergies.
