Jake was very proactive in his efforts to help me which was much appreciated. I am yet to use the nutritionist however the help so far and the speed/ efficiency have been outstanding (even when i have been slow to reply). I would highly recommend due to the information i have received it has helped my diet and well-being immensely.

Great test, it was exactly what I was looking for. The test helped me determine which foods to avoid which improved my overall health and cleared up my skin.

A few weeks ago I made one of the best decisions of my life by going ahead with initially, a strip test, and then the food intolerance scan.

I have had trouble for years with bloating, stomach cramps and just couldn't put my finger on what was the problem in the end I thought it was normal until a friend spoke about intolerances to food.

After researching about lots of different companies that offer intolerance testing I decided York testing was the best company to move forward with. I am so glad I did!

The service has been second to none with support from the team every step of the way ! Particularly Andrew who was on hand to answer any questions. My results were professional and quick and easy to interpret. My results came back as being intolerant for cows milk, wheat, gluten, yeast, bazil, carrot and egg and borderline reaction for various other foods....So no wonder I always felt rubbish !

After cutting these foods out it only took a few days to notice a huge difference ! And the call with the nutritionalist helped me understand what swaps I could make and what hidden foods to avoid !

After cutting out the foods for 6 weeks I have lost almost 2 stone !! I wasn't intending on this but it seems to have naturally fell off and I feel a whole lot healthier!

If you're thinking of doing a test don't hesitate, it might be expensive but worth every penny. Huge thank you to York testing.

I knew my migraines were triggered by food, however I couldn't single out which food. I was shocked to know that I was intolerant to cows milk, lamb and eggs.

Since then I've replaced cows milk by soya and almond milk and I haven't had a single episode of migraine.

Another lovely surprise I've lost few pounds without any diet. I'm now on week 9th and looking forward to another consultation with Sandra, the nutritionist.

I wish I had discovered this earlier but it's never too late.

Has helped in many ways but having difficulty in cutting out certain foods. Milk is the main problem and substitutes are not the same as the real thing, however, over time I am hoping to see further improvements in my health.

I certainly have more energy.

Having suffered for many months with really bad bloating and discomfort, and indigestion after eating, I couldn't stand feeling overweight and sluggish anymore.

My doctor didn't help - only wanted to give me Gaviscon... I called York Laboratories and spoke to Andrew . I was sceptical at first and thought it was expensive but was at a total loss and wanted answers.

Well my test came back with intolerance to Yeast and borderline gluten. After cutting this out of my diet, and let me tell you yeast is in lots of things, I can't tell you in two days I felt amazing.

Weeks later I have lost that horrid tummy and feel full of energy. I doubt if I will ever go back to eating processed and yeasty foods as I don't really miss it. Feeling good is more important to me than some sweet and yeasty to eat.

All I can say is it's worth every penny. And the after care also is supportive.

I recently had a Food Intolerance Test after suffering with IBS for nearly a quarter of a century.

I was feeling desperate for help. I was amazed and delighted to find out that I have an intolerance of cows' milk! At least now I could have some hope of controlling my symptoms.

After 3 months of excluding dairy products completely, my digestive symptoms have definitely improved and also my persistent cough and rhinitis have gone!! I still suffer from some symptoms of IBS but I am now about to start on a Low FODMAP exclusion diet. I am feeling very hopeful that this will help as I have already excluded some high FODMAP foods from my diet and I can see an improvement.

I wish I had known about York Test years ago! I am recommending it to friends who have digestive ailments.

It has definitely been money well spent.

Your system runs extremely efficiently. Your dietician appeared to have thorough knowledge of her subject and was willing to advise on all aspects of my health re food problems.

My problem giving immediate inconvenience was migraines and so far I have been clear whilst avoiding the suggested foods. It is too early to know if other health problems are being eased by this programme but I have confidence that things are improving.

Very impressed with the speed and efficiency of testing.

Have "obeyed" all the suggestions and have noticed a remarkable change in my health.

Losing weight, less tired, more energy and planning meals more carefully.

The last seven weeks (test date 7.5.15) have been amazing. I have managed to eliminate yeast, cow's milk and gluten from my diet.

Even after just a few days I began to lose weight. I have now lost one stone and have much more energy.

I have been really constipated for many years and would only go to the loo with medication from the doctor. I had to take a double dose and knew I had to stay at home all day!

This last couple of weeks has seen a complete change and I no longer need the medication.

Wow! Thank you so much.

Very glad i did this. Currently on week 8 after finding out what foods i'm intolerant to and starting to feel better in myself. Still a way to go but I'm happy I did the test have even managed to loose a couple of pounds.

I have IBS anyway but i've never been able to find those irritant foods this helped with that, my IBS is better now too.

It was a great relief to know which foods were really upsetting me when I felt sick all the time. The Nutritionist clearly put me on the right track and I felt less confused and more confident straight away.

Seven weeks on I feel far better and almost symptom free. I could not have achieved this without expert guidance. I will be taking further advice in the near future as I have made such progress and I think my health and diet could be even better, I am glad this programme is seen as a long term thing.

I am recovering at my own pace and do not feel under any pressure. It's great ! Thanks.

I have suffered from self-diagnosed IBS for most of my adult life, feeling bloated a lot of the time tired and lethargic. In the last 12 years I have also had had bouts of diarrhoea, which have been investigated by my GP and subsequent hospital visits for further investigations with cameras and biopsies. There is bowel cancer in my immediate family and it's always a relief to rule out anything sinister.

A year ago I had a very long and debilitating episode that meant I couldn't move from from the toilet and left me with no energy at all for days on end. I was unable to take my dogs for a walk or go anywhere without knowing there were toilets close by. To say I was having to go to the toilet 30 times on bad days is not an exaggeration.

Again I was referred to the hospital and the examinations and tests all came back negative.

I was really beginning to worry what could be the cause and I did some internet research.

I had often wondered if it could be diet related and kept food diaries but nothing seemed to trigger the attacks. When looking at food intolerance and allergies I came across the Yorktest site and read the reviews. Feeling I needed to do something even it was to eliminate food intolerances I ordered the first test kit.

My kit arrived with really clear instructions and I undertook the test and sent it off straight away. I was kept up to date by email about the status of my order and results, it came back showing that there were signs of food intolerance.

I guess I was sceptical and thought well they would say that to get you to undertake a full testing but I decided to go ahead and have the full test done. I didn't need to provide any more samples and I paid a small amount extra to have the results back in a couple of days.

The results came back and again the communication with staff at YorkTest was excellent everything was emailed and I spoke to someone on the phone who outlined the results and encouraged me to ring when my results pack arrived and book a telephone appointment with the Nutritionist. I was diagnosed with an intolerance to milk and cashew nuts, and borderline intolerance to yeast, gluten, soya and others.

I had my conversation with the Nutritionist which was probably one of the best 30 mins I've spent in a long time, she was excellent in explaining how to deal with the results and a way to move forward.

I can say that two months down the road my attacks have all but stopped, I feel healthier because I'm less tired and I can now walk the dogs.

The service and support I have had from YorkTest has been excellent and would say to anyone with IBS or unresolved issues like I had to consider the tests.

I am nearly 60 and for almost all my adult life lived with IBS and I'm hoping that I can now manage it so much better by changing my diet, thanks to the test results and advice given. Thank you.

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

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 a reaction on your results.  If you know of foods that cause you to feel unwell, 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.

FoodScan does not provide information about coeliac disease, enzyme deficiencies such as lactose and alcohol intolerance, IgE-mediated allergies, histamine sensitivity or other chemical sensitivities such as reactions to sulphites, tannins or tyramine.  FoodScan is only recommended for people who have food  intolerance symptoms.
