Immune Panel (Allergies + Sensitivities) by Genova Labs

How Can Genova’s Immune Profile help you?

Did you know that the most common foods known to trigger reactions include wheat/gluten, milk, eggs, peanuts and tree nuts, soy, and shellfish? However, removing all of these foods may not be necessary. Testing can help pinpoint which foods are causing the reaction.

  • Eliminating specific reactive foods can improve your symptoms.

  • Knowing which foods may be a problem can help you and your clinician build the best diet for you rather than following fad diets or restricting foods unnecessarily.

 

Genova offers an all-in-one test to provide a full picture of your immune system response.

 

Every food test comes with a personalized summary of reactive foods. This can help your clinician develop a tailored food plan specific to your needs and symptoms.

What is the Immune Profile?

The IgG Food Antibody Panel can be ordered as a stand-alone test or bundled with other profiles. Often times, clinicians will bundle several smaller profiles in order to see a more complete picture of the patient's immune-mediated response. Profiles that can be bundled include:

 

  • IgG Foods - 87 foods plus total IgE

  • IgG Vegetarian - 21 foods plus total IgE

  • IgG Spices - 24 spices plus total IgE

  • IgE Foods - 19 foods plus total IgE

  • IgE Molds - 15 molds plus total IgE

  • IgE Inhalants - 16 inhalants specific to 18 North American geographic regions plus total IgE

  • Celiac and Gluten Sensitivity - Total IgA, tTG IgA, DGP IgA, EMA IgA, Anti-Gliadin IgG & IgA

1.

The IgG Food Antibody Assessment is a blood test that measures antibodies to 87 commonly consumed foods. The panel also includes a total IgE measurement. The body can react to foods in many different ways. Adverse food reactions can lead to distressing symptoms and chronic health conditions. Often times it is unknown exactly which food(s) may be the cause and testing can help identify the problematic foods. Removal of the reactive foods often results in resolution of symptoms.

2.

The IgG Vegetarian Food Profile (*not available in NY) is a blood test that measures antibodies to 21 vegetarian foods. The panel also includes a total IgE measurement. The body can react to foods in many different ways. Adverse food reactions can lead to distressing symptoms and chronic health conditions. Often times it is unknown exactly which food(s) may be the cause and testing can help identify the problematic foods. Removal of the reactive foods often results in resolution of symptoms.

3.

The IgG Spice Profile (*not available in NY) is a blood test that measures antibodies to 24 culinary herbs and spices. The profile also includes a total IgE measurement. The body can react to foods in many different ways. Adverse food reactions can lead to distressing symptoms and chronic health conditions. Often times it is unknown exactly which food(s) may be the cause and testing can help identify the problematic foods. Removal of the reactive foods often results in resolution of symptoms.

4.

The IgE Food Antibody Assessment is a blood test that measures IgE antibodies to 19 of the most allergenic foods. The panel also includes a total IgE measurement. The body can react to foods in many different ways. The prevalence of food allergies in Western countries is rising, with up to 10% of the population affected. This trend likely involves a complex interplay between genetic, epigenetic, and environmental risk factors.

5.

The IgE Mold Profile is a blood test that measures IgE antibodies to 15 common indoor and outdoor molds. The panel also includes a total IgE measurement. Everyone breathes in airborne mold spores, and in people with mold allergies, symptoms mainly affect the respiratory tract. Testing for mold allergies can identify whether mold is causing the symptoms. The patient can experience relief with symptom management, and by avoiding ongoing exposure to the mold source.

6.

The IgE Inhalants Profile is a blood test that measures IgE antibodies to 16 common indoor and outdoor inhalants specific to 18 North American geographic regions. The profile also includes a total IgE measurement. Testing can help identify whether an allergen is triggering the common symptoms associated with seasonal, pet or mite allergies. These symptoms include sneezing, coughing, itchy and watery eyes, and others. The patient can experience relief with symptom management, and by avoiding ongoing exposure to the identified allergen.

7.

The Celiac and Gluten Sensitivity test is a blood test that measures important markers to aid in the diagnosis of CD including Total IgA, Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase IgA (tTG IgA), Anti-Deamidated Gliadin IgA (DGP IgA), and reflex Anti-Endomysial IgA (EMA IgA). Gluten sensitivity is assessed via Anti-Gliadin IgA and Anti-Gliadin IgG. Along with these results, Genova's unique report configuration provides a simple diagnostic algorithm to aid clinicians in assessing likelihood of disease.

What is the difference between IgE and IgG-mediated reactions?

The key differences between IgE allergies and IgG sensitivities are summarized below:

IgE-Mediated Allergies
(Foods, molds, inhalants)

Immediate onset (minutes to hours)

Circulating half-life of 1-2 days

Permanent allergies

Stimulates histamine release

Hives, stuffy or itchy nose, sneezing, itchy, teary eyes, vomiting, stomach cramps or diarrhea, angioedema or swelling, shortness of breath or wheezing, anaphylaxis

IgG-Mediated Sensitivities
(Foods, spices, vegetarian foods)

Delayed onset (hours to days)

Circulating half-life of 21 days

Temporary sensitivities

Activates complement
Does not stimulate histamine release

Gastrointestinal symptoms, headaches, joint aches, rashes, other vague symptoms
