What the test tells you

Vegetarian Food Sensitivity Home Test Biomarker Results

Our food sensitivity tests determine your reactivity to specific foods by measuring your IgGImmunoglobulin G (IgG) is the most common type of antibody in your blood. antibodies. Your results will be displayed across a series of visual charts, organized by food group and measured by reaction class on a scale from 0 (very low) to 4 (very high).

 Food Sensitivities vs. Food Allergies:

While food allergies stimulate a response from your immune system, food sensitivities generally trigger a reaction from your gut. Though they’re more common than food allergies, food sensitivities aren’t generally as dangerous. With allergies, immune system treats that specific food as an invader, often resulting in reactions such as hives, swelling and even anaphylaxis. Food sensitivities, however, are associated with your gut’s inability to process specific foods, resulting in symptoms such as stomach cramping, bloating and fatigue.

In simple terms, food sensitivities can be translated as your digestive system’s inability to process certain foods. It’s estimated that up to 20 percent of the global population may experience food sensitivities, but the broad range of symptoms often leaves them undiagnosed.

Fatigue, weight gain, abdominal discomfort and headaches are just a few symptoms that may be attributed to unaddressed food sensitivities or intolerances. Because your gut microbiome is constantly changing, food sensitivities can also change over time.

Food sensitivities are often correlated with other health issues, including (but not limited to):

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Leaky Gut Syndrome
  • Indigestion (including bloating, diarrhea and constipation)
  • Acid Reflux
  • Migraines
  • Eczema

The proper screening, identification and elimination of reactive foods often provides relief for those with undiagnosed food sensitivities. However, if you’re experiencing any of the above symptoms, we recommend first consulting with a healthcare practitioner.

      Who is Notch for?
      Notch is for anyone over the age of 18 who is looking to complete a lab test from the comfort of their own home. Our health tests cater to those who are looking to pinpoint food sensitivities, vitamin deficiencies, airborne/environmental sensitivities and more.

      Do I need a prescription to use Notch?
      No, you do not need a prescription. Notch works with a physician network to authorize test requisitions in each state that we offer test kits.

      Where do you ship to?
      We currently ship to most U.S. addresses and U.S. territories, excluding New York State, New Jersey and Rhode Island. We do not ship to PO Boxes/APO/FPO addresses.

      Is my information safe?
      We take your privacy and the security of your information very seriously. We’ve designed the Notch platform to be HIPAA-compliant and have implemented strict security protocols to protect your information. Please read our Privacy Policy for more details.

      Are Notch health tests the same tests you would take in a doctor’s office?
      Notch health tests are the same tests as you would take in a doctor's office. Samples are sent to our CLIA-certified lab and analyzed by qualified laboratory technicians. The only difference is the method in which we collect your blood. We collect blood with a capillary blood sample (finger prick) instead of a venous blood sample (taken from the vein).

      Is this replacement for visiting a doctor?
      If and when possible, we encourage everyone to use their own doctor and health insurance for health tests. Home health testing is often more convenient and flexible than traditional health testing. However, we are not a replacement for visiting a doctor and do not diagnose, prescribe, treat or provide personal medical advice.
