Immediate reactions to food (IgE) and Inhalants (IgE)
Classic allergic reactions occur within minutes and up to 3 hours after eating. They are usually caused by high IgE antibody blood levels that produce an immediate allergic response.
This allergic reaction may appear as a rash after eating foods like strawberries or crabmeat. Other reactions are asthma, rhinitis, dermatitis, hay fever symptoms, swelling of the face, tongue or eyes.
The potentially fatal but rare “anaphylactic” reaction after eating foods like peanuts or shellfish is another example of an “IgE” reaction.
Tests show results for foods currently in the diet. Never consume a food you think may cause anaphylaxis. This level of severe allergy requires a management plan under medical supervision.
These tests require you to have blood taken at your local pathology centre. A clear visual report shows mild, moderate or severe reaction.

Delayed Reactions to Foods (IgG4)
These reactions are much more difficult to notice since they can occur hours or days after consumption of an offending food. Yet, this “delayed” type of reaction is far more common than the immediate IgE type. In some cases, you may eat a food for several days before developing a reaction to it, so you may not realize the link between the food and your symptoms. These delayed reactions to food are often referred to as “hidden” food sensitivities. They are caused by increased IgG antibody blood levels in reaction to specific foods. Often, the offending foods are hard to avoid and frequently eaten, such as milk, corn, and wheat. Foods sensitivity reactions may have one of several mediators, so it’s possible for you to react to certain foods even with low or negative levels of IgG4. The test results are still valuable since they may guide your clinician to look for non-immunological causes. such as indicating breath testing.
This test is a finger prick blood sample only so can be done at home or in clinic and tolerated well by children.
A clear visual report shows mild, moderate or severe reaction.

FOOD INTOLERANCE & MALABSORPTION
Breath Testing for Lactose Intolerance, Fructose Malabsorption, Sorbitol Malabsorption and Small Intestinal Bacterial overgrowth. Current research suggests these sugars contribute to Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and FGID. This test measures the amount of gas in the breath after swallowing a measured amount of sugar. The test can be performed at home or in a centre and results and management plan are discussed with your naturopath or dietician.
The Low FODMAP Diet Book and Monash University App are also useful tools.
