Once received, your sample is then analysed by a specialist laboratory in Switzerland that will identify those foods that react and cause an intolerance.

A full detailed report will be sent to you approximately 5-7 business days after receipt of your blood sample. The foods causing an intolerance will be identified at three different degrees of intolerance (low or 1st degree, medium or 2nd degree, severe or 3rd degree). A typical result would be to identify the food that causes the problem and then advise what action should be taken. For example a severe or 3rd degree level of intolerance it would be recommended that you do not eat that food for three months and then to slowly re-introduce that food eating it just once in each of the next 2 weeks of the fourth month and then once a week for the fifth month and by the 6 month you should be able to eat that food item normally. The 64 foods tested cover all the main foods covering meat, dairy, fish, nuts, fruits, vegetables,tea, coffee etc.
