Discover the underlying triggers of your body's reactions and sensitivities.
Allergies vs. Sensitivities
|IgE-Mediated Allergies||IgG-Mediated Sensitivities|
|Foods, Molds, Inhalants||Foods, Spices, Vegetarian Foods|
|Immediate onset (minutes to hours)||Delayed onset (hours to days)|
|Circulating half-life of 1-2 days||Circulating half-life of 21 days|
|Permanent allergies||Temporary sensitivities|
|Stimulates histamine release||Activates complement
Does not stimulate 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||Gastrointestinal symptoms, headaches, joint aches, rashes, other vague symptoms|
The Immune Function panels can be ordered as stand-alone profiles or ordered together with other profiles. Clinicians will often order several smaller profiles together in order to see a more complete picture of a patient's immune-mediated response. Profiles that can be ordered together 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 Profile||Total IgA, tTG IgA, tTG IgG, DGP IgA, DGP IgG and EMA IgA|
The IgG and IgE Antibody Panels are blood tests that measure antibodies to commonly consumed foods and environmental allergens. Often times it is unknown exactly which food(s) may be the cause and testing can help identify the problematic foods.
The Celiac Profile is a blood test that measures markers to aid in the diagnosis of Celiac Disease. Genova's unique report configuration provides a simple diagnostic algorithm to aid clinicians in assessing likelihood of disease.
