IgG Food MAP with Candida & Yeast
[Great Plains Labs]

What is IgG Food MAP+ Candida and Yeast Testing?

IgG logo.png

IgG test measures your body’s immune response to 190  foods. It helps provide guidance on what foods are causing discomfort and how to tailor your diet. IgGs are sometimes hard to identify because the body's response may be delayed by several hours or days.  

IgG test results can aid in the structuring of elimination diets that may relieve symptoms of many chronic neurological, gastrointestinal, and movement disorders.

This panel also includes Candida Testing. When Candida or its byproducts enter the blood, Candida contributes to a chronic inflammatory immune system response. 

Why perform IgG Food MAP + Candida and Yeast Test?

By measuring IgG antibodies specific to antigenic food proteins, it is possible to identify which foods may be responsible for hard-to-define symptoms. The 190 foods tested in the IgG Food MAP Test + Yeast and Candida include representatives of major food groups common in Western, Asian, and Mediterranean diets.

Individuals with neurological, gastrointestinal, movement, and behavioral disorders often suffer from IgG food sensitivities. People may continue to eat offending foods unaware of their potential adverse effects.

 

Symptoms associated with food sensitivities may occur hours or days after the offending food was eaten because IgG food antibodies remain for a much longer time than IgE antibodies. IgE food allergy causes the release of histamine, producing an immediate hypersensitivity reaction.

 

In contrast, IgG food sensitivity causes an inflammatory response. This is a delayed hypersensitivity reaction in which symptoms appear anywhere from hours to days after eating the offending food.

 

Elimination of IgG-positive foods may improve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, autism, AD(H)D, cystic fibrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and epilepsy, according to numerous clinical studies.

Who Would Benefit From IgG Food Allergy Testing?

Adults or children experiencing:

  • Non-celiac gluten sensitivity

  • Dry or Itchy Skin

  • Fatigue 

  • Bloating 

  • Stomach pains

  • Food Intolerance

  • Gastrointestinal (GI) distress

  • Headaches

  • Joint Pain

  • Migraines

  • Vitamin deficiencies

 IgG food test results are often used to develop food antibody-guided exclusion/ elimination diets.

 

The implementation of such diets has been shown to alleviate symptoms associated with nonceliac gluten sensitivity and food sensitivity-induced atopic conditions, reduce the frequency of migraine headaches, decrease the occurrence of diarrhea, decrease failure–to-thrive among children with cystic fibrosis, reduce symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, improve rectal compliance, decrease stool frequency in Crohn’s disease, prevent seizures and hyperkinetic behavior in children with epilepsy, and ameliorate kidney function in glomerulonephritis.

 

Food elimination diets also hold promise for the improvement of behaviors associated with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Sample Report

Why Test For Food Sensitivities (IgGs)? 

  • IgG testing determines if food reactions are contributing to physical or mental symptoms, and much more quickly than eliminating and then reintroducing each suspect food one-by-one over a period of time.

  • Removal of highly reactive foods from the diet is a non-invasive therapy that often mitigates a patient's symptoms.

  • Research and clinical studies suggest food allergies identified by IgG testing can be major contributing factors to many chronic health conditions.

  • Eliminating all identified IgG-positive foods after testing can reduce stress on the immune system, decrease inflammation (helping to heal “leaky gut”), resolve food cravings, and reduce the potential for eating disorders.
