Purpose – To provide evidence that elimination diet based on food‐specific IgG test results is an effective, reliable and valid aid to the management of chronic medical conditions.Design/methodology/approach – A postal survey, commissioned by Allergy UK, was carried out with 5,286 subjects reporting a wide range of chronic medical conditions, who had taken a food‐specific IgG enzyme‐linked immunosorbant assay blood test. Questionnaires, issued three months after the results, were analysed to… Expand

Role for food‐specific IgG‐based elimination diets
TLDR
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. Expand
Incidence of food intolerance, related symptom and intervention effects
TLDR
This work aimed to analyse fourteen foods’ intolerance in health-examination people, including related symptom and intervention effects, and found that people have different general food intolerance level by the influence of different foods. Expand
An exploratory comparative investigation of Food Allergy/Sensitivity Testing in IBS (The FAST Study): A comparison between various laboratory methods and an elimination diet
TLDR
None of the NIMFA tests evaluated in this study were found to be diagnostically predictive in the identification of specific foods that exacerbate the gastrointestinal symptoms in the authors' small sample of IBS sufferers. Expand
Two Popular Diet Models:Food Intolerance Test and Diet for Blood Group
TLDR
The results of the personal food intolerance test were found not to show minimum 80 per cent consistency with the foods included in the classification made by the diet for each blood group. Expand
The Effect of Elimination Diet on Weight and Metabolic Parameters of Overweight or Obese Patients Who Have Food Intolerance
TLDR
It is proved that people who cannot lose weight by low-calorie diet can lose weight and fat with elimination diet according to the results of FI test, and FIED is also significantly effective in triglyceride levels. Expand
IgG-dependent food allergy and its role in selected diseases
TLDR
The authors of the above analysis decided to review the current data concerning the effectiveness of a diet based on the results of IgG-dependent allergy research in reducing the symptoms of particular health problems. Expand
Analysis on relationship between specific IgG antibodies of 14 food allergens and allergic skin diseases
TLDR
The serums of the allergic skin disease patients have food specific IgG antibodies, illustrating the correlation between allergic skin diseases and food intolerance. Expand
Food-Specific IgG Guided Elimination Diet; Role in Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
TLDR
The evidence behind a potential role for IgG-guided elimination diet for those with IBS is reviewed and a distinction is made between IBS with pain or discomfort and predominant constipation, IBSWith diarrhoea, and mixed IBS. Expand
Food-Specific IgG Guided Elimination Diet ; A Role in Mental Health ?
It is well known that diet and gut health affect mental health symptoms such as stress-related disorders, depression and anxiety [1]. Bi-directional signalling between the gut and the brain includesExpand

TLDR
The authors of the above analysis decided to review the current data concerning the effectiveness of a diet based on the results of IgG-dependent allergy research in reducing the symptoms of particular health problems. Expand

TLDR
Food elimination based on IgG antibodies may be effective in reducing IBS symptoms and is worthy of further biomedical research. Expand

TLDR
It is clear that the inclusion (or otherwise) of appropriate control subjects, particularly age-matched healthy children, is crucial to the interpretation of much published data. Expand
Food hypersensitivity and atopic dermatitis: evaluation of 113 patients.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that food hypersensitivity plays a pathogenic role in some children with atopic dermatitis and that appropriate diagnosis and exclusionary diets can lead to significant improvement in their skin symptoms. Expand
Food-Specific Serum IgG4 and IgE Titers to Common Food Antigens in Irritable Bowel Syndrome
TLDR
Serum IgG4 antibodies to common foods like wheat, beef, pork, and lamb are elevated in IBS patients, and this finding suggests the possibility of a similar pathophysiological role for IgG 4 antibodies in Ibs. Expand

TLDR
It can be concluded that the involvement of foods in allergic rhinitis is more frequent than is usually expected and the definite confirmation of the role of a certain food in these patients should be provided by the food ingestion challenge demonstrating one of the clinical types of nasal response.

TLDR
The processes by which M cells present antigen to the underlying macrophages and trigger both T cell and B cell activity, resulting in the release of a number of products including secretory immunoglobulin (Ig) A are summarized. Expand
Food hypersensitivity and atopic dermatitis.
TLDR
The role of food hypersensitivity as a major trigger factor exacerbating atopic dermatitis in children and consideration is given to the prevention of atopic disease through exclusive breast feeding. Expand
