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 personal ‘food fingerprint’.

Discovering and understanding your own personal food and drink intolerance, and the effects they have on your health and wellbeing, is important to ensuring you make the best possible choices to balance your diet.

I have overhauled my diet to exclude all my trigger foods apart from cows milk which I fully intend to stop drinking in the next couple of months. I felt unable to suddenly replace this with a substitute but have chosen to gradually introduce almond milk over a period of time. I am pleased to say that for the first time in 35 years I have suffered no IBS for eight weeks!!! I keep waiting for it to happen but so far it hasn't, its incredible to me. Also my eyes do not itch much at all now whereas previously they were irritable and itchy every day. Also my heartburn and indigestion have been almost eliminated. My all consuming tiredness and joint pain has vastly improved and I'm hopeful that in time this will resolve completely, perhaps when the cows milk has been eliminated. Anyhow I'm grateful for the improvement I've had so far, I can't quite believe it really and I wish I had stopped wheat, gluten and eggs years ago, to think of all the pain and suffering I've had! I wish GP's would recommend your test to the legions of patients with IBS to see if it helps them (I work as a GP secretary and it plagues so many of the patients in my practice).

I have, for a few years, been suffering from several health problems, such as eczema, asthma, inflamed joints, constipation and bloating. I was pretty convinced these were caused by food intolerances, and started researching food intolerance testing, but the cost put me off, so I decided I would DIY some testing myself. I cut out dairy, which helped, and I also attempted several elimination diets over several months, but I found it impossible to stick to them, as I suspected so many foods were causing me problems, and at that point I knew I wanted help to pinpoint the culprits. After much deliberation and online research I decided to go for it, and if I was going to really go for it it had to be the York Test Food and Drink scan. Yes it seems expensive, but what price do you put on your health and happiness? So I reintroduced dairy and all other foods I had been half heartedly avoiding and ate pretty normally for 2 months (which happily coincided with the Christmas and New Year festive period) and once January came around I ordered the test. The test arrived within a couple of days, and I set to reading the simple instructions and taking the blood test and carrying it to the post office as if it were a precious piece of porcelain! Then the long wait....only just over a week but it seemed much longer, especially as I received confirmation that the sample had been received, and then that the results had been processed, but still had to wait for the results to plop through the letterbox. Getting the results was such a good feeling, at last I had proof that some of the foods I had been eating freely were causing me problems. I had registered intolerant to cows milk (no surprise), egg white (big surprise), cashew nuts, brazil nuts (oh no) and yeast (the worst of them all)! I also registered borderline intolerant to gluten, plaice/sole/egg yolk, grapes and lychee. So there it was, in black and white (and red and orange and green). I didn't feel at all upset or disappointed as I had been so used to restricting my diet, but now I had a proper tailored list to work with. My chat with the nutritionist went well, but she didn't really offer me any advice that I didn't already know, but it was nice to know I could call back if I had any further queries. And now to the real results. I have to come clean and say I have not 100% eliminated all my problem foods, but I have vastly cut back. I do feel much better, and I am planning to do full on elimination once I have a clear social break in my calendar! I am so glad I took the test, and I would recommend it to anyone whether you think you have health problems or not, I am sure everyone would trigger intolerant to one food or other.

Very professional service. I bought the Food & Drink Scan programme & was diagnosed as being dairy & gluten intolerant. Since cutting out foods containing these ingredients I feel a different person - many thanks. I can't believe the difference in a few short weeks.

I had migraines so got advised that it could possibly be an intolerance to something so decided to do this test. Was a quick and easy test and got the results back really quickly. After finding out I'm cows milk intolerant the doctor rang and was really helpful in explaining the alternatives. I've managed to cut out cows milk and no longer suffer with migraines. Brilliant service, would recommend.

It gave me a a very good overview of quite a few intolerances I had built up which I have now been able to exclude from my diet and I look forward to an improvement in my health. The time with the nutritionist was invaluable and exceedingly informative.

I had an excellent experience with YorkTest, the team provided exceptional service every step of the way, from letting me know that my test is on the way, to providing me with detailed information and support with understanding my results, and preparing my new diet plan. Having changed my eating habits more than 8 weeks ago now, I can definitely say I have seen great results, all my symptoms have disappeared, and I feel absolutely fantastic!

Excellent service and follow up. I have had very good results since eliminating my trigger foods from my diet. No more nausea, bloating and generally feeling unwell. I have more energy and lost over a stone in weight.

After suffering from lethargy, digestive problems, bloating and chronic acid reflux for the last year or so, I decided to give this test a go. Having already tried to cut out specific things from my diet myself and taking daily antacids, I was so fed up of feeling rubbish. My results came back as expected in terms of gluten, but I was also surprised by other items that had flagged up as reactive. So glad I took the test and can now move forward with my elimination diet properly. I've yet to book my nutritionist advice appointment so can't comment on that, but I'd recommend this test to anyone suffering from suspected food/drink intolerance.

Very pleased with the whole experience. My GP had been obsessed in diagnosing me with IBS etc and offered no help. I then contacted YorkTest and from the start I received support and advice every step of the way. It was a very quick and professional service and the nutritionist consultation was very valuable for me. I finally had a reason why my symptoms of bloating, fatigue and terrible wind were there!!! Food and drink intolerances were discovered and I substituted these food groups. I no longer have bloating (unless I have something that doesn't agree) I am still battling with my weight but as I also have PCOS, I am hoping that the new eating habits will help with this. I would definitely recommend anyone struggling with these symptoms to contact the YorkTest team.

I had this test 14 years ago when I was 12, It identified both milk and yeast protein allergies which I was able to avoid and now rarely have any issues. Before this, I was having weekly migraines, swelling in my neck which caused occasional hallucinations after awaking from sleep, dizziness, disorientation, stomach pains and drowsiness. If you've tried working things out by other means, I would suggest giving this a go as my life would be entirely different without it.

I have suffered terrible headaches, usually 3-4 days at a time, since my teens often with neck pain too which my doctor advised was spondylitis. It got to the stage where the headaches were almost weekly so in desperation I decided to try the Yorktest. Turns out my intolerance is cows milk and egg whites. I have now switched to a vegan based diet as the recipes are dairy and egg free although I do still eat meat occasionally. Within 2 weeks my headaches had disappeared and I have had no neck pain whatsoever since. Another thing that I wasn't expecting is that I also suffered with eczema and mild rosacea on my face ... There are no signs of either now! I can't recommend this test highly enough ... I just wish I'd heard about it years ago.

The York test was extremely helpful in identifying the foods and drinks that had been causing problems for most if not all of my life. Some intolerances and allergies were already know to me but I was surprised to find that I was also intolerant to other foods and drinks. The challenge was to research the changes I needed to make and to begin a sensible and manageable elimination diet that would lead me to good health and for me, a new "normal". The telephone consultation with the Nutritional Therapist confirmed my plans and she was extremely positive and encouraging, giving me some really good ideas of the way forwards. It is also good to know that I can get in touch through the helpline if I have any further queries or concerns. During the consultation it seemed that the degree or extent of my intolerances had been calculated from the test, but this information was not shared with me other than one food/drink group being higher than the others. It would have been extremely useful to have known more precisely how severe my intolerances are as this would have helped in planning the way forwards. Overall, though, I have had a very positive experience and I look forward to finding what my new "normal" is.
