Though IgE antibodies (indicating an allergy) and IgG antibodies (indicating an intolerance) are both produced by the immune system having an IgE type-1 allergic reaction to a food does not mean an intolerance reaction will also take place. To give an example, whilst your results may show an allergic (IgE) reaction to wheat you will NOT necessarily have an intolerant (IgG) reaction, this does not mean you can tolerate the food, rather that you produce IgE antibodies but do not produce IgG antibodies for the given food.
