Blood Testing

What is a Food Indicator Test?

Food Indicator tests are carried out on a blood sample collected from a finger-prick into a CNS heparinised blood collection tube. The test provides a comprehensive list of foods that you are intolerant and slightly intolerant, and which food you are not intolerant to. The test is performed at home; a sample Foodprint reports are prepared in a Group format where results from similar types of foods are listed together.

Technical Bit

Promotes clinically evidenced results by measuring the immune iGg reaction to foods. When food particles enter the blood stream, your immune system can sometimes identify these foods as foreign agents and produce antibodies to attack the foods in question. This response is the immune systems natural defence mechanism to ward off harmful invaders which creates inflammation. This inflammation can trigger troublesome symptoms which may persist if they are neglected. 

After the test

Your results come through within 7 days with an accompanying guide to explain the results. The results are listed in an easy-to-read traffic light form; high, borderline, and low reactivity.  High reactivity foods should be eliminated for 12 weeks before slowly trying to reintroduce.  You can also discuss your results with a Nutritional Therapist at the laboratory. One 30 minute consultation is included.
