Elisa Testing For Other Sensitivies

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've been gluten free for four months but still felt bad so I had a test done by Alletess Medical Lab called the IgG, IgA and IgE ELISA and I'm having a hard time understanding the results and my doctor is out of town and I'm anxious to understand what it all means. Wondering if anyone knows how to interpret it. An example is the IgG page where almonds have a score of 0.206 and it's a one score on the class section. The range is under 0.199=0, 0.200-0.299=1, 0.300-0.399=2 and greater thank 0.400=3. I'm wondering if anything above 0 is positive or anything in the 1 class is ok and anything in the 2 class and higher is what I should avoid. Anyone know what this means.

Dear Beth,

The 96 IgG ELISA test scores report out as Class 0-3. Class 0 is clearly negative. Anything reported as a Class 1 or higher is positive. Most medical professionals would recommend the removal of all positive foods from your diet for a period of 8-12 weeks. Rememeber IgG measures sensitivity. IgE measures true allergic response. If you are struggling with food options you may want to speak to your physician about allowing some of the Class 1's based on the score. For example .206 to almonds. The challenge is if you continue to have those lower scoring foods the antibody level can increase. That is why elimination and rotation are advised. I hope you find this information helpful.

Yes this does help. Thank you. I'm going to take out all positive foods and hopefully I'll start to feel better soon.

Beth,

I also had this done by the same lab almost 4 years ago now. I was reacting to 21 different foods. I removed them from my diet and it was almost a year before I added any of them back in. I do a rotation diet to make sure I don't have a reaction. Wheat and gluten were also on this test. That is when I went gluten free and never looked back. So yes you can add some of the foods you tested positive for, but it must be several months down the line. You also just add one food at at time to see if there will be a reaction. If not add it back in. I only avoid about 4 things on my list now and will remain gluten free.

Hope this helps

Susan
