IgE is the “fast acting” part of the immune system with most symptoms appearing within seconds up to 3 hours.   There is another part to our immune system that has a “delayed” response and is often linked to hidden food allergies.  This part of our immune system is called IgG and symptoms can take hours to days before they show up.

Many Naturopathic doctors can do a simple blood test to help identify if your skin symptoms or digestive symptoms are related to hidden food allergies.
