IgG4 (delayed) PLUS IgE (immediate) Allergy Test Kit
What is an IgG4 response?
IgG4 antibodies are associated with non-atopic or "delayed" food reactions that can worsen or contribute to many different health problems. These reactions are considered the most common form of immunologically mediated food intolerance. An IgG4 response to food is actually more common than the IgE response, which causes an immediate reaction. IgG4 acts as a blocking antibody, protecting the individual from potentially fatal IgE reactions. These reactions are more difficult to notice since they can occur hours or even days after consumption of an offending food. In some cases, a person's reaction to a food may occur several days after eating the offending food and the link between the food and their symptoms may not be connected. These "hidden" food allergies are caused by increasing blood levels of IgG4 antibodies in reaction to specific foods.

What is an IgE response?
The IgE antibody causes "classic" or "atopic" allergic reactions related to hay fever and anaphylaxis and is well-known for causing immediate allergic reactions. IgE food allergy testing reveals reactions that occur immediately after ingesting offending foods such as peanuts or shellfish. According to the FDA, more than 160 foods can cause allergic reactions in people with food allergies. The eight most common foods accounting for 90 percent of food allergic reactions are required by law to be listed in the ingredients, and are the food sources from which many other ingredients are derived.
