We recommend our clients eat as broad a range of food as possible prior to the test, including the products below for 3-5 days before coming in for the test. If you have removed any foods from your diet, please reintroduce them (unless they cause you to become ill or you have been given medical advice to remove them ).
- Goats products – cheese, milk, yogurts
- Soya products – cheese, milk, yogurts
- Spelt bread (available in all major supermarkets)
- Some form of nuts, seeds & oats
- Sweet potato
We are happy to test children under the age of 16 as long as we have a a GP referral letter requesting a “food sensitivity / food intolerance test”. The GP must collect the blood sample. We will do the laboratory analysis and return the results to the GP.
Health & Nutrition support the HPRA recommendation:
Consult your GP before booking a food intolerance test.
