In Response To: Is food allergy testing neccessary? (Kristy P)

I've gotten here a little bit late for the discussion,
but thought I might need to clear up some things
that have been discussed for anyone interested.
Allergy is not equal to intolerance even though
sometimes will say I'm allergic when they mean
intolerant or hypersensitive. An allergy causes
severe and usually nearly immediate symptoms ranging
from hives and "throat swelling" (laryngoedema)
to much lesser symptoms. They are caused by an
immune reaction of your body termed IgE. These
are allergies that traditional allergists look for
and treat. Food intolerance is different. It is
a delayed reaction anywhere from 30 mins to 48 hrs.
after exposure and sometimes hard to spot for the
simple fact that these foods are consumed more than
every third day. In fact, Crook has stated that
some people actually crave the foods they're allergic
to. This intolerance can be sometimes be tracked
by looking at the IgG. This is the blood test that'
Immuno Labs does. Those that say only 1-2% of people
have allergies are telling the truth. Much more common
are the food intolerances. I would advise anyone
that is thinking of taking the Immuno panel to HAVE
avoid the foods that you're allergic to before
testing (ie a type O avoids milk, wheat and
corn) and then gets the test several weeks later,
the results will be inconclusive. If on the other
hand, you wish to try the diet first, DO NOT GET THE
TEST DONE. It will likely be a waste of time.
Going on a rotation diet in which you eat
suspected foods only once every four days would
be preferable. OR abstaining from suspected foods
and then re-entering them into the diet will likely
result in a more 'violent' reaction. Hope this
helps. Please feel free to email me with questions.
