Food Intolerance Testing Here at Health-Success
What is and IgG Response?
At our laboratory we specialise in rigorous analytical testing. We test for food-specific IgG antibodies in blood samples. The presence of food-specific IgG antibodies indicates that a reaction has occurred to that particular food and the results from the test are used to formulate an elimination diet.
Blood samples are handled and tested only by our own trained, qualified laboratory scientists at Lorisian Laboratories directed by a board of medical and clinical directors. Our products comply with strict EC directives and meet the highest industry guidelines.
We use ELISA technology (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) to detect food-specific IgG antibodies in your blood. The ELISA method is used extensively in hospital laboratories. This technique has been shown to be highly reproducible in measuring antibodies of clinical importance. The test is unique to Lorisian and our parent company YorkTest, and has been providing diagnostic testing since 1982.
An independent Customer Survey was conducted by The University of York (2007) and involved 5,286 customers who eliminated their trigger foods after taking a test.

What Happens When I Take The Food Intolerance Blood Test?
A simple pin prick test is sufficient to provide the laboratory with all they require to test you. It is similar to pricking your finger on a drawing pin and is very straightforward – there are no hyperdermic needles, just a measured device that takes the desired amount. We then send the test to the laboratory and the results are retuned to us in a roughly a couple of days. We will then let you know if the initial test showed IgG antibody response. From there you have a choice which test to take.
