Food Intolerance Testing
What is Food Intolerance Testing?
A Food Allergy is usually an acute, often severe, occasionally life-threatening reaction to food, whereas Food Intolerance is usually a more chronic response with symptoms often slow to develop (sometimes days) and may last for weeks. The reactive food to which a person is intolerant mediates an antibody response (IgG) which can be measured in Food Intolerance Testing.

The food we eat can have a significant effect on every aspect of our lives. Making adjustments to your nutrition and lifestyle can make a big difference to the way you feel and your health.
If you suffer with Irritable Bowel Syndrome, evidence is showing the relatively new FODMAP diet can significantly improve symptoms in 75% of people. Studies show that reducing weight by 5-10% can cut risks of heart disease, diabetes and stroke and reduce blood pressure and cholesterol.
So whether you want to improve your energy, take control of your weight, improve your performance in sport or have a specific health concern, a consultation with a registered dietitian could benefit you.
Each consultation is tailed to your specific needs, to suite your lifestyle and to help you make achievable changes.
Dietary analysis is also available where your diet is nutritionally analysed, this is useful to check for vitamin or mineral deficiency, carbohydrates and protein intake for sport or for assessing overall energy intake or weight gain or loss.
