208 Food Panel, IgG-US BioTek Kit

Note: This is a test kit that will be mailed to you.




Fasting Required: No

Specimen: Bloodspot

Lab: US BioTek

Results: 7-10 business days

Special Instructions: It is suggested that you maintain your usual dietary habits and consume a variety of foods when possible within a couple weeks prior to blood collection, unless advised otherwise by your healthcare practitioner. Avoid eating foods that may have potentially resulted in a previous adverse reaction and/or anaphylaxis, as secondary exposure may prove fatal. Do not perform this test if you are taking blood thinning medications or if you have a blood clotting disorder unless authorized by your healthcare practitioner.

Immunosuppressive drugs such as oral and intranasal corticosteroids (e.g. prednisone, beclomethasone, fluticasone, triamcinolone) and topical cortisone suspensions and creams, in addition to immune-modulating drugs, may affect test results for antibody assessment.

Description: Food allergies and sensitivities are recognized to be correlated with many plaguing health conditions, but with proper identification and elimination of offending foods, many experience relief from their symptoms.

The 208 Food Panel is a comprehensive food sensitivity testing option for patients who may have underlying sensitivities to less conspicuous antigens. Assessing IgG antibody reactivity across a broad range of culturally-diverse foods helps to identify trigger foods in these individuals.
