Finding out the true cause of allergy, have a safe life
What is allergies?
When the body’s immune system is reacting negatively to substances, usually harmless to, develop allergies. Allergenic antigens enter into our bloodstream, causing inflammation.
Below are the symptoms:
Sneezing; Itching of the nose, eyes or roof of the mouth; Runny, stuffy nose; Watery, red or swollen eyes (conjunctivitis); Tingling in the mouth; Swelling of the lips, tongue, face or throat; Hives; Anaphylaxis; Hives; Itchy skin; Rash Facial swelling; Wheezing; Anaphylaxis; Loss of consciousness; A drop in blood pressure; Severe shortness of breath; Skin rash; Lightheadedness; A rapid, weak pulse; Nausea and vomiting.
What is food allegry?
A food allergy manifests when the immune system mistakenly treats food as a substance as harmful to the body, producing a response that causes inflammation of the body. An allergic reaction produced by an Ige anti-body is commonly referred to as an “IgE Food Allergy” and an allergic reaction produced by an IgG antibody is often referred to as an “IgG Food Sensitivity”.
The proportion of people suffering from allergies worldwide is on an increasing trend, currently affecting more than 30-35% of the total population.
Immediate Allergic Response (IgE) vs Delayed Allergic Response (IgG)
Signs from an Immediate Allergic Response are obvious, and symptoms usually manifest within a short period after consuming the trigger food. Since the reaction is immediate, it is far easier to identify the food responsible.
How do you know if you suffer from IgG Food Sensitivity
By measuring the test subjects’ concentration of antibodies to various foods, we can determine which foods will prove a greater health risk to each individual.
Microarrays consist of probes that are arranged or “arrayed” on a glass chip. These probes could be small fragments of DNA or protein that represent a section of a specific gene’s entire DNA sequence and track the interaction of the captured proteins, respectively. Microarrays are robust tools for diagnostics because they measure large numbers of analytes simultaneously and can answer multiple diagnostic questions with one array.
The technique, Microarray-based ELISA, is used in IgG Food Sensitivity Screening Test, where the test subject’s blood sample is applied onto a specially designed microarray chip and put through a specific testing procedure and data analysis. After the process is complete, the test subject will receive a report on their own delayed allergic response.
Microarray-based ELISA technology for the IgG Food Sensitivity Screening Test is utilized in more than 100 laboratories worldwide. Since 2007, tens of thousands of tests were provided to individuals containing valuable nutritional information that is instrumental in improving their health.
IgG Food Sensitivity Screening Test contains over 220 foods/elements that cover the vast majority of the nine categories on the daily diet ( see sample image). It is the only test in Hong Kong that have such a wide variety of food types during the IgG Food Sensitivity Screening Test.
