IgG tests promise to reveal food sensitivities

IgG tests promise to reveal food sensitivities. But are they science or science-ish?

Viola Dessanti has just gotten back the results of her young daughter’s IgG test—a blood test that looks for food sensitivities. “I have mixed feelings about it,” she says.

Dessanti’s naturopath shared the results with her a few hours before she spoke to Healthy Debate. Her two-and-a-half-year-old daughter had elevated antibodies for three foods, and was borderline for six. Dessanti, who hopes the test will help uncover food triggers for her daughter’s asthma, is worried about its limitations. But she’s happy they did it.

“I know full well that it isn’t definitive,” she says. “But at the same time, when your kid suffers from something life threatening, you’ll do anything to get even just a little bit more insight into what will make it better. Anything that I can do to give me a little bit more information, more tools to manage this, I’ll take it.”
