Food Intolerance (IgG) ‘Indicator’ Test

All About the Food Intolerance Indicator Test

Perhaps you are suffering from a chronic condition, or you just don’t feel 100%. You could be suffering from bloating and digestive problems or you could have problem skin. All of these conditions and many more have a possible link with food Intolerances that could be well worth investigating.

When you have an intolerance to a food an IgG antibody is produced and these antibodies can be responsible for many of the symptoms associated with a food Intolerance and as symptoms are not always immediate it can be difficult to identify which food or foods may be causing a problem.

  • Nausea
  • Stomach pain
  • Gas, cramps or bloating
  • Vomiting
  • Heartburn
  • Irritability or nervousness
  • Anxiety (acute or chronic)

The Food Intolerance Indicator Test

This yes/no test is a quick way to determine whether or not your symptoms could be related to foods.

The finger prick indicator test gives you a clear Positive or Negative result tested against 40 foods BUT DOES NOT provide you with a list of which foods you are reacting to. If your test is positive you can upgrade your sample to one of the tests available, see below.

If you are sure that food Intolerances are causing you a problem you may like to skip this step and go straight onto A Full Food Intolerance Test

A NEGATIVE indicator result means you can rule out food as the problem.

A POSITIVE indicator result means that IgG antibodies have been detected against one or more of the foods, indicating that this may be causing your symptoms.

If you have a POSITIVE result, you can choose to ”upgrade” from the Indicator test to a 40 , 60 , 120 or 200, vegetarian or vegan food intolerance test.

There is no need to send another blood sample if you choose to upgrade within a month of receiving your results as we can arrange for your indicator blood sample to be used.

If you do wish to upgrade to a more comprehensive test, you will only pay the difference in price between the Indicator test and the upgrade of your choice.  To upgrade please email us or give us a call or click on the which ever buy now upgrade button you need.
