Food Intolerance Tests

Food Intolerance is a reaction to food that may cause unpleasant symptoms and is associated with a host of chronic conditions. It is unlikely to be life threatening.

While less than 2% of the population suffer from food allergies, it is estimated that up to 45% of the population suffer from a food intolerance. It can affect anyone at any age, but since symptoms often occur some time after the food has been eaten it can be difficult to find the problem food without the use of advanced laboratory testing.
The majority of food intolerances are a result of an immune response to foods and may have developed because of poor digestion, dysbiosis (imbalance of good and bad bacteria), Candidiasis (overgrowth of the yeast, candida albicans), parasites, intestinal infections, a poorly balanced diet, alcohol consumption, or the effects of drugs and medications. Each individual has their own unique reaction to food. Antibodies, also known as Immunoglobulins (IgG), form against the food and are present in the blood.

Pulse Health Screening offers a variety of food intolerance tests that check for the presence of IgG in a finger prick sample of blood, which confirms an intolerance.

Please Note:  You should not change your diet prior to the test.

Tests available from YORKTEST

When food particles enter the bloodstream, your immune system can sometimes identify these food proteins as ‘foreign’ and produces IgG antibodies to ‘attack’ the particular food in question.  This response is the immune system’s natural defence mechanism to ward off harmful invaders in the body which can create inflammation. This inflammation can then trigger troublesome symptoms, which may persist if they are neglected.  Symptoms can include: Headaches,  Bloating,  Wind, Abdominal pain,  Lethargy, Tiredness, Anxiety, Weight gain.
