About the Food Intolerance Test

 

Collection method: Blood

Measures: IgG Antibodies to 64 Foods

Turnaround time: 10 working days

For this test, you simply collect a small amount of your blood by pricking your finger. This blood is then sent to a lab to be measured for IgG antibodies. Based on the results, you’ll find out which foods may be problematic—and also whether your digestion is working optimally. Tailored advice will help you create a way of eating that works for you.

What are food sensitivities?

 

 

Occasionally, large fragments of food are able to pass through the gut wall. These fragments are called ‘antigens’. Your immune system recognises antigens as foreign and creates antibodies (known as IgG) that attach to them. These antigen-antibody complexes are deposited in body tissues, where they contribute to a range of symptoms.

By measuring the types of IgG in the blood, it’s possible to work out which foods you may be reacting to. It also gives clues about the integrity of your gut.

 

Frequently asked questions

Is food sensitivity testing legitimate?

Yes, we believe there is real value in food sensitivity testing if you know how to interpret the results. Rather than focusing on specific foods, it can be helpful to look at the overall picture presented by the results. If you find you’re sensitive to lots of foods, for example, it could mean that your gut health needs addressing. You may also wish to consider the Leaky Gut Test and the Gut Health Test. Feel free to get in touch with us at hello@healthpath.com if you’d like further guidance.

Will I have to give up lots of foods?

Not necessarily. If you find you have lots of foods in the ‘red’, it can be more helpful to focus on improving your gut health rather than subjecting yourself to extreme dietary restrictions. Our food intolerance test reports explain this in full detail. If you’d like to know more, feel free to get in touch with us at hello@healthpath.com

Who should take the food intolerance test?

People who feel they’re reactive to lots of foods may find this test helpful. If can also be helpful for people who suspect they have food sensitivities but can’t seem to establish any pattern to their symptoms.

How do I take the food intolerance test?

You can download full instructions here.

Do I need to stop taking supplements or medications before taking the food intolerance test?

This test may be affected by immunosuppressant medications. However, you must not stop any medications in order to take this test. Please speak to your GP first.

Is there anything I need to do before taking the food intolerance test?

You must follow your normal diet before taking the food intolerance test. However, if there’s a food that you’ve avoided for more than 3 months but which you would like tested (e.g. cow’s milk), reintroduce that food. Eat one portion of the food daily for a week before taking the test. For more information, see the test instructions.

Is there anyone who shouldn’t take the food intolerance test?

Pregnant women should not take this test as their immune system is suppressed. It should be fine to take the test 4–6 weeks after giving birth.

How long for food intolerance test results?

Your results will be posted on your online account a maximum of one week after you return your samples.

How do I view my results?
