Symptoms: severe eczema

“Reggie feels amazing, I wish we had done this sooner”

9 year old Reggie Thompson had suffered with severe eczema for 6 years. Because of his symptoms, Reggie had to regularly take time off school, couldn’t go swimming or even play at friends’ houses. It also affected his holidays, leaving Reggie unable to fully enjoy a carefree childhood.


After trips to the doctor where he was prescribed potent steroidal creams but no further advice, his parents came across YorkTest on the internet. After taking a Junior Food Intolerance Test with YorkTest, Reggie discovered that his body was producing IgG antibodies when encountering cow’s milk and also wheat, egg, coffee and yeast – results that caught Reggie’s parents by surprise as they were never told about cutting out these ingredients from his diet.

When asked how Reggie felt after removing his trigger foods, Reggie’s mum added: “Reggie’s mood lifted and his skin cleared up”. Reggie and his parents visibly saw improvements in his symptoms and overall quality of life two months after removing his food intolerance.

The Junior Food Intolerance Test analyses your IgG reactions to over 100 food and drinks – from common ingredients like cow’s milk, wheat and egg white, to health superfoods like kale and quinoa.

The process, which involves sending a finger-prick blood sample to the company’s laboratories revealed the foods that Reggie was reacting to, in an easy-to-read traffic light-style format, indicating which foods were highly reactive and which ones were only slightly reactive.

When asked how they found the elimination process, Reggie’s mum told us that she found the whole process challenging at first but soon got used to it. Reggie’s now following his diet plan and is slowly being re-introduced to milk and dairy. According to his mum, Reggie’s bedtimes are “100% better with no nighttime itches for hours”. His family also found the customer care team were “very helpful” as was the nutritional consultation where Reggie was also advised to take probiotics.

When Reggie and his family were asked how they would summarise their experience with YorkTest, Reggie’s mum concluded with “Reggie feels amazing. I wish we had done this sooner, best money I have ever spent!”.
