Immunoglobulin G (IgG) measurement is often used for those who suffer from a delayed-reaction allergy to certain foods (compared to an immediate reaction from IgE food allergy). With IgG food allergy, the symptoms may appear anywhere from hours to days after eating the offending food. Individuals who suffer from IgG food allergies often suffer with neurological, gastrointestinal and movement disorders. Elimination of IgG positive foods can improve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, ADD, ADHD, among others.
