Now Offering Allergy Testing with USBiotek
Both IgE (allergy antibody) and IgG (delayed response antibodies – consistent with sensitivities) are antibodies which make up a portion of the immune system. When IgE antibodies react to antigens on foods, this will result in an immediate allergic reaction causing mild to severe symptoms that may be life threatening. When IgG antibodies react with food antigens they create complexes that are not removed properly from our body and accumulate to cause chronic inflammation resulting in various symptoms.
With reactions ranging in severity from mild to life-threatening, accurate identification of IgE-mediated food allergies is critical. Instead of solely waiting for a referral and test to be run by an allergy specialist which could take up to two years in Sask, we offer serum-specific IgE testing of up to 295 Foods and Inhalants that can be processed and reviewed within a week ordered by your Naturopathic doctor. Sample collection requires a blood draw that can be performed at the clinic. These tests can be ordered independently or bundled with any IgG/IgG4/IgA food sensitivity panels for more comprehensive information to support your treatment protocol.
The allergy tests are run on IgE panels on an FDA-approved immunoassay analyzer that utilizes enzyme-amplified chemiluminescence technology. Chemiluminescence provides lower detection limits than conventional ELISA, making it particularly suitable for IgE detection.

** With the help of your Naturopathic Doctor it is crucial to assess the health of your microbiome otherwise known as the bacteria/environment of the gut. The status of your gastrointestinal system has a key role in your body’s sensitivity/allergy response, and should therefore always be worked on in conjunction with elimination protocols to reduce the frequency/intensity of reactions.
