About Irritable Bowel Syndrome and the IBS Diet Programme

Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a gastro intestinal disorder which affects 1 in 6 people and can develop at any age. The physical effects can vary from discomfort to severe pain with suffers typically experiencing bloating, diarrhea, constipation, flatulence and cramps, all of which impact negatively on quality of life and can be embarrassing and distressing.

Please note: If you are concerned about any symptoms you are experiencing, you should always visit your GP to rule out any serious underlying medical condition.

The YorkTest IBS diet programme has been specifically developed to test for IgG reactions to 158 different food and drink ingredients.

The service was fast and efficient and very professional. I am carefully following the diet recommended and am finding that I am having fewer attacks of IBS which have interfered with my life over many years. I would recommend the York test to anybody with IBS

The whole process from initial testing to selecting the appropriate diet plan is simple, quick and very professional with support available throughout. I am following the IBS plan and the advice given by the dietitian has made an amazing difference - not cheap admittedly but well worth it!

After weeks of broken, restful and sometimes NO sleep, extreme abdominal pain, bloating and lack of energy, I decided to do something about it and figure out if my diet had anything to do with the problem. I did extensive research into which company to use and I'm going to be honest, the reviews on York Lab were the influences into making my decision. Seeing all of the feedback from other people encouraged me to go for it. My thought process was - if I'm going to spend the money anyway then why not spend a little bit more and get the best possible results. I was sceptical, don't get me wrong, but I kept the faith based on the other reviews. So if you're reading this and you're thinking about using YorkTest Lab then I would extremely advise to go for it. The whole process was simple, quick and professional. Service was first class. I was in complete shock when I got my results because most off my triggers I have on a daily basis (there was part of my answer.) I worked my way through the list (which is colour coded and extremely informative) and took the time to read all the information. My results came back that I couldn't have gluten, salmon, lamb, eggs and cashews. I also had borderline wheat, yeast, crustacean mix, beef and cows milk. At first I was like ok --- so what am I supposed to eat?!! Am I going to live on rabbit food?! How am I going to continue with life when these are all my favourite foods?! Plus, isn't gluten in EVERYTHING??!! After the initial shock and the consultation with the nutritionist, I made a start and cut everything out. Now 3 months down the line, I feel like a new woman. Sleep has improved, no bloating or abdominal pain and I can run for longer without fatigue or getting stitch (so much so that I'm doing the Manchester 10k next week!) I had already changed to soya and almond milk before the test so that didn't bother me, it was the salmon, eggs, wheat, yeast and gluten that were the hardest to get my head around. I soon became a PRO at reading the back of packets put it that way. But it was for the best. It has helped me beyond belief. This is the whole point of this review and why I would recommend it to anyone. Yes it's hard at first, yes it's a struggle sometimes, (especially when all your mates are tucking into their smoked salmon, eggs and avocado toast for brunch and you have to tackle it like a mine field,) but it's worth it because at the end of the day your health is the most important thing. Alongside my results were the foods to avoid with my IBS. I was a complete stranger to this if I'm honest and it was huge eye-opener to me as to what was causing my bloating, and I'm not ashamed to say it - wind. This was different to my intolerances and changed the way I looked at food for the better. At the end of the day this is a lifestyle change and my overall digestion has improved so much! I find it fascinating what the human body reacts to - either good or bad, it will LET YOU KNOW! Therefore, I listened to mine and made the changes I needed to. I am a foodie. Therefore you can imagine my frustration with my results. I wanted to cry, I have cried! But I know that it's completely for the better and I'm 150% over the moon that I did it. I also now understand why I felt the way I did, so I can kind of close that book if you get me. Support from family and friends has been great and overall I'm positive for the future and to continue on this journey! Thank you for everything guys, for the follow-ups, the consultation and everything else, I would recommend you to anyone. I havn't been public on my Instagram about it all yet, as I was still trying to get my head around things, but I will be posting things over the summer - I'm going travelling so will be fun to see how I get on with foods and new places. Plus, I'll be hoping to achieve a new PB in the run next week! https://www.instagram.com/vivatroners/ Thanks again !! xx

The test showed an intolerance to yeast. Since cutting out bread and baked goods I have seen a huge difference in my Ibs symptoms. So glad I took this test and would recommend to anyone.

I am now 10 weeks in and have seen an overall improvement. I have the odd day where the symptoms return but not for long. I feel that the programme is helping and am hoping that the improvement continues. The advice and support from the Yorktest team has been good and useful

Excellent service and this has confirmed some of my suspicions and taught me about intolerances I never knew I had. I have completely changed my diet & I haven't had any symptoms since (apart from when I strayed back during a holiday week when problems were almost back instantly). Best test I have taken with truly remarkable results. Thank you & ive recommended this test to people suffering from IBS.

Absolutely brilliant. My digestive and overall health has been transformed by having this test done. Several food intolerances were identified and along with the fodmap list I have been able to illiminate foods and substitute with alternatives. My IBS is gone along with my food cravings and lethargy. I feel more energetic, my joints no longer ache and at long last I can get a decent nights sleep. I can't recommend this test highly enough.

What is FODMAP?

FODMAP stands for Fermentable, Oligo-, Di-, Mono-saccarides and Polyols.
These are certain types of carbohydrates that are poorly absorbed in the small intestine. When they pass into the large intestine bacteria ferment them.  The combination of bacteria and FODMAP foods in the large intestine produces large amounts of gas which results in bloating, pain, diarrhoea and/or constipation, all classic symptoms of IBS.  

Following a low FODMAP diet has been shown to be effective in treating IBS symptoms for approximately 70% of people who implement it.**

The low FODMAP diet originated in Australia in 1991 and was developed by the research team at the Monash University Department of Gastroenterology in Melbourne.  They found that limiting dietary FODMAPs is an effective treatment for people with IBS symptoms. Recently it has been successfully launched in the UK and is used by the NHS.

Why choose the IBS Diet Programme?

Dr Hilary Jones, TV Doctor comments;

“The YorkTest IBS Diet Programme could offer a lifeline to Irritable Bowel Syndrome sufferers who have either struggled to find a solution or who would like to try to reduce or avoid medication.  The low ‘FODMAP’ diet is gaining increasing interest and is being used by NHS dieticians to help IBS sufferers.  The FODMAP diet does not, however, take into account an individual’s food intolerances. By combining FODMAP advice alongside their comprehensive food and drink intolerance programme YorkTest are now able to provide a tailored solution which may hold the answer for those seeking a dietary solution for their IBS symptoms.”
