IgG stands for “Immunoglobulin G.” Immunoglobulins are the antibodies used by the immune system to identify and neutralize foreign objects such as bacteria and viruses. Everybody has IgG antibodies in their blood but occasionally these antibodies can start to react against foods. This is what can cause food allergies or delayed-onset food allergies (food intolerance). IgE mediated allergies (type I) are completely different from IgG mediated allergies (type III). An IgE allergy is a traditional “true” allergy where symptoms occur immediately, rather than delayed in the case of IgG food allergies. IgG reactions increasingly occur in case of a disturbed intestinal flora, but decrease if the change in diet is kept to. IgE reactions occur occasionally and remain for your whole life. Type I food allergies must be considered in addition to the ImuPro results when changing your diet, since the food tested positively for IgE antibodies must always be avoided.
