ALLERGY TESTING / IMMUNOLOGY
FROM GENOVA DIAGNOSTICS LAB

In conjunction with bringing the latest DPC Immulite antibody assay technology to Genova Diagnostics Lab we have introduced an expanded offering of allergy / immunology tests that include:

  1. Mold Profile

  2. Celiac Profile

The newest allergy profile available measures quantifiable IgE antibodies for Molds. As the modern world continues to evolve, it is becoming increasingly apparent that our indoor environment can have a huge impact on our health.

Molds (also know as fungi) are ubiquitous in the environment and can concentrate in homes, offices and public buildings. It is estimated that the annual work impairment costs associated with pollen / mold exposure are between $5.4 - 7.7 billion dollars in the US alone!


ALLERGY ANTIBODY ASSESSMENTS

What this test does:

  • Identifies antibodies related to immediate (IgE) and delayed (IgG) hypersensitivities to foods.


  • Provides qualitative and quantitative information related to both immediate and delayed-onset hypersensitivity reactions.


  • Includes an individualized True Relief - rotation diet schedule categorized into food families and related foods


Available tests:
  1. IgE Food Antibodies - IgE antibody levels for 19 foods, and Total IgE.


  2. IgG Food Antibodies - 87 foods and Total IgE.


  3. IgE Molds Profile - 15 common molds and Total IgE. An ideal test for patients with suspected environmental allergies specific to molds.


  4. IgE Inhalants Profile - 14 common pollens and environmental inhalants specific to North America and Total IgE. An ideal test for patients with suspected environmental and / or seasonal allergies.


  5. IgG Spice Profile - 24 commonly used herbs and spices and Total IgE. An ideal test for patients with suspected allergic reactions to spices and herbs.

CELIAC PROFILE

Clinical studies indicate the Anti-Tissue Transglutaminase IgA / IgG and Endomysial IgA antibodies as highly prevalent and reliable for non-invasive assessment of Celiac Disease. Our profile includes Total IgA to rule out false negatives in IgA immunodeficient individuals, and the Endomysial IgA as a reflex when indicated.

Anti-GLiadin IgA and IgG is available to establish levels and use as a monitoring tool for successful elimination of gluten.

For more information on any of the tests listed above,
please call 416 913 4325 (HEAL).
