Food intolerance is exceptionally widespread, and this problem affects maximum numbers of people at some stage of their life. Those who suffer with food intolerance can have more than one symptom which could range from an upset stomach to bloating.It can even affect the immune system and in the long run can subject you to severe headaches, migraine, disturbed bowel movements and many other skin & respiratory conditions.
Essentially, food intolerance is your body’s abnormal reaction to certain foods which can manifest itself in a number of ways:
A sample of your blood will be taken under the supervision of our general practitioner. It will be then sent to the lab where they will test it for a number of intolerances. This test measures IgG responses to 200+ foods which includes diary, vegetarian, non-vegetarian, spices, nuts etc. It is the most comprehensive list of food that will be helpful for the people who assume that they have intolerance against a number of foods.
This test is good for those patients who suspect they are intolerant to certain food groups such as dairy, gluten, or yeast.
The FoodPrint® IgG antibody test does NOT test for classical allergies, which involve the production of IgE antibodies and cause rapid-onset of symptoms such as rashes, swelling, violent sickness, difficulty breathing and anaphylactic shock. If you have a food allergy, it is important to continue avoiding that food, regardless of the test results obtained. This advice also applies if you have been diagnosed with Coeliac disease or any other food-related condition such as lactose intolerance.
