Our food allergy testing programme
So, do you experience food reactions thinking an allergy might cause them? Do you also experience hay fever-type symptoms, the cause of which is unknown to you?
However, allergies can be challenging to pinpoint. Besides, dealing with an allergy is almost impossible without identifying what is causing the problem.
This Food Allergy Test is a fast and reliable home-to-laboratory allergy testing service. Furthermore, it can pinpoint what you are reacting to, identify your specific allergic reactions, and enable you to take control.
What foods does the AllergyCheck test?
This Food Allergy Test tests for reactions to the following foods:
Meat mix (pork, beef, chicken, lamb)
What environmental allergens does the Allergy Test test?
This Allergy Test tests for reactions to the following common environmental allergens:
House dust mites (D. pteronyssinus and D. farinae)
How does the test present your results?
So, you will receive your allergy test results as a detailed chart. Then you can hand them either to your GP or Healthcare Practitioner. Besides, you will see the test results in an easy-to-understand format. It will indicate the strength of your reactions on a scale of 0-6.
The laboratory will also post your confidential results and additional support material within ten days.
Before taking the test, you might not have exposed yourself to a particular food or environmental allergen. Also, you may not be displaying symptoms. In that case, your antibody level will not rise. However, your result may be negative (no reaction). You may also know about your body's adverse reaction to a particular food. In that case, please avoid eating that food.
Also, do not take this test if you are:
Symptoms of food allergies vary from person to person. However, we have listed the most common food allergy symptoms.
tingling or itching in the mouth
swelling around the mouth, throat, face or tongue
respiratory symptoms such as shortness of breath or wheezing
itchy red rash (hives)
feeling sick (nausea) or vomiting
diarrhoea or abdominal pain
Symptoms can range from mild to severe. However, they can also vary by intensity. For example, you may consume problematic food and experience tingling in the mouth, but the reaction could be more severe later.
What are the symptoms of hay fever?
Symptoms of environmental allergies vary from person to person. However, we have listed the most common environmental and hay fever allergy symptoms:
Runny or blocked nose
What causes food allergies?
An allergic reaction happens when your body overreacts to a specific substance. Your body then sends out chemicals to defend against it.
It is possible to develop a food allergy to a food you have eaten for years with no problem. The reason for this is still unknown. According to the Food Standards Agency (FSA), around 2 million people in the UK suffer from food allergies.
Can you develop an allergy?
Yes, you can develop an allergy anytime – seasonal or food-related.
Some studies speculate that moving to a new location may trigger environmental allergens or if you are exposed to allergens when the immune system is weakened, such as during pregnancy or illness. It may trigger food allergies. However, it is still unknown exactly why adults suddenly develop allergies.
You are most likely to develop adult-onset allergies in your twenties, thirties, and forties instead of later in life.
How many food allergens are there?
Under EU legislation, the UK classify 14 major food allergens. These listed allergens must be declared on all pre-packaged food in the UK:
Cereals containing gluten
Sulphur dioxide (sometimes known as sulphites)
Do I have a food allergy or food intolerance?
It's common to believe that a food allergy and food intolerance are the same things, but they take on different processes in the body.
A food allergy can cause a life-threatening condition called anaphylaxis. It is when released chemicals act on the blood vessels to cause swelling. Food allergies typically appear instantly and up to two hours after consumption.
On the other hand, food intolerance may take up to three days to show any symptoms, making it problematic to identify the cause. Food intolerance is not life-threatening but can cause distressing symptoms, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), migraines and headaches, skin issues, tiredness and joint pain.
Suspect you may have a food intolerance instead of a food allergy. Don't worry. We were named Food Intolerance Testing Company of the Year in 2018 and 2019 and specialise in home-to-lab tests.
