The test results helped me avoid the foods I was intolerant to, which did help with my IBS symptoms. I was a little disappointed that I still got an occasional flare up, but realise my IBS is not only triggered by certain foods, but also stress related. As one of my problem foods was yeast, it is important to cut out all hidden sources of yeast, and I did get some flare ups when I hadn't read the food labels properly. For my IBS having the test done was incredibly helpful as it identified the problem foods which I would never have managed to do using an exclusion diet alone as my symptoms varied in the length of time they appeared after eating the different problem foods. I know that the borderline problem foods can be introduced soon, as I have tried the odd portion without a problem, it seems that my exclusion period has allowed my guts to calm down and I feel much better

The First Step which was at a reasonable cost confirmed that I had an intolerance to certain foods. Following the actual,in depth blood test I was advised that I was intolerant to Yeast and marginally intolerant to Soya and Corn/Maize. I cut these foods out totally and reduced my sugar consumption and improvements were immediately apparent. It certainly isn't an easy option to cut out foods that you like butbit is worth it.

Send it off in envelope provided and quickly receive the result of whether the blood proves positive or negative towards food intolerances. Helpful phone call to decide which package to go for to pinpoint which foods or drinks are the culprits.

Having felt terrible on and off for years, always being tired, it was brilliant to finally get to the bottom of the issue. I had been fobbed off by various doctors and specialists and found this extremely frustrating.

The team at York Test were extremely helpful and I would recommend you use them if you have explored all other conventional avenues and want a clear result.

About the FirstStep Test

As individuals, our reactions to foods and drinks vary a great deal. An ingredient which may cause problems for one person could be completely acceptable for another. At YorkTest, we like to refer to this as our ‘food fingerprint’.

Understanding your own personal food and drink intolerances, and the effects they could have on your health and wellbeing, is important to ensuring you make the best possible choices for your diet.

The YorkTest FirstStep is ideal for discovering whether food-specific IgG antibody reactions are present in your blood before progressing to one of our complete YorkTest programmes. Learn more

The YorkTest FirstStep kit contains all you need to take a small blood sample (2 – 3 drops) in the comfort of your own home. Simply return your sample in the pre-paid envelope provided (UK only) to our York laboratories for expert analysis. Your confidential results are then posted to you within ten days.

If you get a positive result* you will be able to progress on to one of our tailored complete programmes. Our complete programmes are supported by essential guidance and advice from our BANT** registered Nutritional Therapists to enable you to eliminate your trigger foods and optimise your diet.

If you get a negative result then you do not have food-specific IgG reactions present. Our Customer Care Team will talk you through other testing options available to you.

N.B. Raised levels of food-specific IgG antibodies within your blood indicate that an IgG antibody reaction to a particular food or foods has occurred. If you have already taken the decision to eliminate a particular food or foods from your diet they may not show up as a reaction on your results. If you know of foods that trigger your symptoms then do not start eating them; we do not encourage you to eat a food or foods which you already know are a problem to you.
