The reference range listed on the report is the lower limit of quantitation for the assay. The clinical utility of food-specific IgG4 tests has not been clearly established. These tests can be used in special clinical situations to select foods for evaluation by diet elimination and challenge in patients who have food-related complaints, and to evaluate food allergic patients prior to food challenges. The presence of food-specific IgG4 alone cannot be taken as evidence of food allergy and only indicates immunologic sensitization to the food allergen in question.
