Food Intolerance 40 items

79,00 £

Are you hypersensitive to certain foods? GetTested’s Food Intolerance Test analyzes IgG4 antibodies for 40 different foods that are often involved in a hypersensitivity reaction. Food intolerance means that the body reacts or is hypersensitive to specific foods. With an allergy, the reaction usually comes immediately, but with a food intolerance, the symptoms can come hours or even several days later, which can make it difficult to link the symptoms with something you have eaten before.

If you are interesting in testing for allergies, we also offer an extended test that measure 78 items in total, both for allergy (IgE and food intolerance IgG). If you prefer a more comprehensive food intolerance test, these are also offered as 80 items and 240 items.

Before taking the test

We recommend that you have been exposed to the foods included in the test within the last three months, before taking the test. If more than three months has passed without having ingested those foods, the chance is that it might show a lesser sensitivity on the result.

The ELISA-method

The food intolerance test is performed via a method called ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay), which is an analytical technique designed to detect and quantify soluble substances such as peptides, proteins, antibodies and hormones. In this method, the antigen itself (the target macromolecule) is immobilized on a solid surface (microplate) and then complexed with an antibody that is linked to a reporter enzyme. Detection is accomplished by measuring the activity of the reporter enzyme via incubation with a suitable substrate to produce a measurable product. The most crucial element of an ELISA is a very specific antibody-antigen interaction.

Instructions

You take the test yourself at home through a so-called capillary blood test. This means that you will have to make a small stick in your finger and squeeze out a few drops of blood on a piece of paper or into a test tube. Your sample is then sent to our lab for analysis and you will receive your answer digitally as soon as the lab has analyzed your sample.

  1. Make a purchase on the website and pay with Swish or card (Visa, AMEX or Mastercard). Easy and safe.

  2.  A test kit is sent to the address you enter when ordering. After your order, we will send home a test kit with instructions. It also comes with a stamped envelope that is mailed to us. It is recommended to send in your sample on a Monday or Tuesday.
