Frequently Asked Questions
The GenArrayt® IgG antibody test is based on the immune system’s ability to produce antibodies in response to certain foods. If a food has been avoided for more than 3 months, it is likely that IgG antibody levels will be insufficient to be detected by the test and may give a NORMAL result. To test intolerance to a certain food, it should be included in the daily diet, or at least every other day, for 4-6 weeks before testing. However, if the food concerned is known to cause extreme symptoms/ discomfort, do not reintroduce it.
If your Test Report shows an ELEVATED reaction to gliadin, it is important to eliminate any foods that contain gluten-based grains and substitute with naturally gluten-free foods, such as quinoa, buckwheat, corn, oats and wild rice. If your Test Report shows an ELEVATED result for wheat, rye or barley, but NOT for gliadin, the reaction may be due to one of the other proteins found in the grains.
