Food intolerance (IgG / IgG4 PRE-SCREENING)
Food intolerances or in other words not being able to tolerate certain foods. Food intolerances are common and can develop at any age. Unfortunately, they are by no means always detected. This is because the complaints do not always indicate a nutritional problem.
• Fully differentiated diagnostic concept covering all currently known pathological mechanisms of a food allergy / intolerance.
• Differentiation between IgG and IgG4 mediated food intolerances
• A relatively inexpensive step-by-step diagnosis with a variable number of allergens investigated.
