Are the foods you’re eating making you sick? If you find that you’re trying to get healthy, but aren’t sure where to start then food allergy testing can help guide you in the right direction. Food is the foundation of life, and though we love to eat, not all the foods we eat love us back. Some foods cause anything from bloating, headaches, and acne to hives, fatigue, and cramps. But without food allergy testing, it can be difficult to identify which foods are the culprit. If you find yourself wondering if food allergy testing is right for you, here’s some information to help you make an educated choice.
A food allergy blood test checks your blood for antibodies that your body may be making to specific foods. The food allergy test will show the list of problematic foods to avoid or eat in moderation.

(IgE, short for “immunoglobulin E,” is the antibody that triggers food allergy symptoms.)
