YorkTest Scientist

According to Allergy UK, it is estimated that 45% of the population suffer from a food intolerance. Whilst the effects of a food intolerance are less severe than a food allergy, they can be the root cause of many disruptive symptoms such as IBS, migraines, joint pain, skin conditions, low mood and fatigue.

These symptoms can in turn have a negative impact on the absenteeism and productivity levels of workforces around the region, the total cost of which was estimated as an average of £690 per employee each year^.

YorkTest Laboratories, based on York’s Science Park, have been a leading provider of home to laboratory testing for over 35 years. With a simple finger-prick blood test they can analyse IgG antibody reactions to 208 food and drinks ingredients, pinpointing a customer’s individual “trigger foods”.

As well as providing easy to understand results, they also offer comprehensive post-test support to their customers, including an information pack, food diary and a consultation with a BANT** registered Nutritional Therapist. These consultations help customers to construct an elimination diet, based on their results, forming a strategy for substituting reaction foods with nutritional alternatives.

In October 2017 33 employees at Blue Logic, a Leeds based IT firm, took part in a clinical trial in partnership with YorkTest Laboratories. A total of 21 employees had been suffering with digestive issues, prior to taking the test. Within just one month of following a YorkTest guided elimination diet, 86% of these people reported back an improvement to their condition.
