Food Intolerance 80 items
Are you hypersensitive to certain foods? GetTested’s Food Intolerance Test analyzes IgG4 antibodies for 80 different foods that are often involved in a hypersensitivity reaction. Food intolerance means that the body reacts or is hypersensitive to specific foods with symptoms such as fatigue, various forms of stomach issues, brain fog, skin problems or headache. Symptoms from food intolerance, unlike allergic reactions that are instant, occur hours to days later, which can make it difficult to link the symptoms with the foods you have eaten.

Before taking the test
We recommend that you have been exposed to the foods included in the test within the last three months, before taking the test. If more than three months has passed without having ingested those foods, the chance is that it might show a lesser sensitivity on the result.
The food intolerance test is performed via a method called ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay), which is an analytical technique designed to detect and quantify soluble substances such as peptides, proteins, antibodies and hormones. In this method, the antigen itself (the target macromolecule) is immobilized on a solid surface (microplate) and then complexed with an antibody that is linked to a reporter enzyme. Detection is accomplished by measuring the activity of the reporter enzyme via incubation with a suitable substrate to produce a measurable product. The most crucial element of an ELISA is a very specific antibody-antigen interaction.
InstructionsThe test is collected at home by yourself through a so-called capillary blood test. Capillary blood is obtained by pricking a finger and the blood is collected into a tube or a paper that is sent to our ISO certified lab for analysis with a unique test-ID. You will receive your result digitally as soon as the lab has analyzed your sample.
