Allergy Panels – IgA- Vegetarian Foods (Test Code 3200)

Immunoglobulin A (IgA) is an antibody that plays a critical role in mucosal immunity. More IgA is produced in mucosal linings than all other types of antibody combined; between three and five grams are secreted into the intestinal lumen each day. This accumulates up to 15% of the total immunoglobulin produced in the entire body.

Available IgA Panels:

  • 96 General (Western) Foods

Patient Brochure

IgA antibodies are produced in the greatest quantity in a day. This is one of the most important antibodies as it is the bodies’ first line of defence against viruses and bacteria. Testing for IgA antibodies against specific foods may be raised when the lining of the intestinal tract, the mucous membrane, become inflamed or damaged. Elevated IgA to specific foods can be a sign of damage to the mucous membranes in the gut.   Individuals with Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, or even those with suspected leaky gut may benefit from testing IgA food reactions. The IgA 96 antibody test can be ordered through a variety of consumed food panels such as the general western foods (Code 3197), vegetarian foods (Code 3200) and Asian foods (Code 3198).

.

It is recommended that IgA allergy testing is only performed for infants greater than 18 months of age.

Common Conditions:

  • Asthma
  • Headaches
  • Eczema
  • Fatigue
  • Irritable Bowel
