Perhaps you’re 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 intolerance that is well worth investigating.
This test gives a simple YES or NO answer and is a quick way to determine whether or not your symptoms could be related to foods.
The test result does not provide you with information about exactly which specific foods you are reacting to, but you find out if you are reacting to any of the foods on the list – see what is being measured below. If your results are positive you can upgrade to one of the comprehensive panels to see exactly what you are reacting to.
If your results are positive you can upgrade to a choice of different full panels. You will only pay the difference in price between the indicator test and the upgrade of your choice. There is no need to send another blood sample but you need to upgrade to the full panel within 10 days of receiving your result.
You will receive your upgrade code in your order confirmation email and you will also get a copy of the code with your results.
The full food panels can be found here:
When you have an intolerance to a food, an IgG antibody is produced. These antibodies can be responsible for many of the symptoms associated with a food intolerance, but as symptoms are not always immediate it can be difficult to identify which food or foods may be causing a problem.
The indicator test checks IgG antibody levels to more than 40 foods including:
Cabbage (savoy and white)
Red kidney bean
White haricot bean
*Gliadin: A glycoprotein (a carbohydrate plus a protein) within gluten. Gliadin is found in wheat and some other grains, including oats, rye and barley. People with coeliac disease, Crohn’s disease and other conditions may be sensitive to gliadin in the diet. In these conditions, antibodies to gliadin can often be detected in the blood.
As this is an upgrade and you will have already therefore submitted a sample for the indicator test, the lab can use the previous indicator sample. There is no need to collect a new blood sample.
You can upgrade for up to a maximum of 4 weeks from the date that your first sample is received.
A food intolerance test is not recommended during pregnancy as the immune system is suppressed which will affect results. Reliable results will be given 4-6 weeks after giving birth.
Patients should avoid the use of immunosuppressant medication if possible, but DO NOT stop any medication without your doctor’s approval.
