“I wish I had the test done six months ago”

For six months, retiree Susan Coombes, was dealing with a range of unpleasant symptoms including a sore stomach, a sensation of fullness, bloating and nausea.

When asked about how these symptoms affected her life, Susan said: “I was constantly uncomfortable and not able to go out and enjoy a meal. Walking when feeling bloated wasn’t comfortable.”

When Susan heard about YorkTest from a family member who had recommended it, she decided to give it a try in a bid to find out what was causing her digestive problems.

After taking the Premium Food Sensitivity Test, Susan’s results indicated that her body was reacting to egg white and egg yolk. We asked Susan how she felt after removing these trigger foods. “In about 3 weeks I improved. I’m back to walking”. Susan is still following her diet plan.

Our test analyses your IgG reactions to 200 food and drinks – from common ingredients like gluten and cow’s milk, to health superfoods like kale and quinoa. The process involves sending a finger-prick blood sample back to YorkTest, Susan then received her results within 7-days through the Wellness Hub, in an easy-to-read traffic light-based format.

Eliminating the trigger foods and sticking to her diet plan has helped clear Susan’s symptoms. When asked about her nutritional consultation, Susan found it “very helpful” along with the customer service which she thought was “spot on.”

When asked how life had changed since taking the test and how she would summarize her experience, Susan concluded: “I wish I had the test done six months ago.”
