Role for food‐specific IgG‐based elimination diets
Article publication date: 12 September 2008
Evidence has suggested that elimination diets based on food‐specific IgG measurement can lead to improvements in chronic ill health symptoms. This paper aims to review the evidence from studies on food‐specific IgG measurement and dietary change.
A literature review of studies on the putative role for food‐specific IgG‐based elimination diets was undertaken.
The use of fully standardised clinically evaluated food‐specific IgG tests as a basis for elimination diet could lead to a considerable improvement in many patients' quality of life.
This unique review captures evidence for a viable alternative to the time consuming and expensive elimination diet/food challenge approach.
