The P88-DIY Dietary Antigen Test IgG/C3d is one single test combining IgG and complement (C3d) reactions to 88 foods all with the convenience of a finger stick but better, a powerful micro-sampling device! Traditional finger sticks typically have you stick your finger, and then collect on a card or piece of paper. While this is a start, there is not nearly enough blood extracted to run tests with many markers. The P88 Dietary Antigen Test was the first test on the market to measure and report immune complexes containing C3d. Complement activation is well-defined in the research as not only a cause of inflammation, but one of the strongest causes.
A highly comprehensive test of immune reactions, Precision Point Diagnostics P88 Dietary Antigen Test IgG/C3d helps you identify and address food sensitivities in patients with chronic illness.
Food Sensitivity Symptoms
- Diarrhea or loose stool
- Gas or bloating
- Rashes, eczema, or swelling
- Joint pain or inflammation
- Headaches or migraine
- Congestion or runny nose
- Sinus infections
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Fatigue or poor sleep
- Poor immune defenses
- Malabsorption of vitamins and minerals
The Most Accurate Food Sensitivity Test
Precision Point Diagnostics provides reliable, reproducible semi-quantitative measurement of total IgG using an indirect ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay). The system is also capable of detecting immune complexes that contain the complement marker C3d.
Other food sensitivity tests may have a weak scientific basis or they may not give the full picture of food reactions. Some tests use live cell analysis, which is not a scientifically accepted sign of true food sensitivity or allergic reaction. Other antibody assays may measure total IgG antibodies only; they could miss food reactions that activate the inflammatory complement cascade.
Better Patient Outcomes
P88 Dietary Antigen Test results can lead to more precise treatment plans and better patient outcomes. Studies show that patients given an elimination diet based on the results of our food allergy and sensitivity testing experienced fewer headaches and less abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, and bloating.2 Knowing exactly what foods your patient reacts to can help to avoid unnecessarily restrictive diets and treatment protocols that inadvertently expose your patient to his or her reactive foods.
The P88 Dietary Antigen Test interpretive report includes more restrictive and less restrictive elimination diets as well as analysis of immune reactions by food groups. This customized report not only helps the clinician use at-a-glance results in clinical practice but also better ensures patient compliance (see sample report).
The P88 Dietary Antigen Test can spotlight the dietary components interfering with your patients’ healing. It is the missing piece of the puzzle and can lead to the resolution of previously resistant health problems.
