  • Description

The Basic Sensitivity Test analyzes your blood sample against 40 of the items which individuals are often sensitive to; including seafood, nuts, grains (including wheat) and a variety of dairy products like egg and milk. For the full list, please click the ‘Items We Test For’ tab.

Lifelab Testing can identify exactly what items may be causing your painful and uncomfortable symptoms. Some of these symptoms include stomach pain, headaches, migraines, excess gas, bloating and even nausea.

Once you have purchased a Basic Sensitivity Test, you will be sent an individual testing kit which will help you to complete your skin prick test. The Basic Sensitivity Test includes all of the items needed to take your blood sample, detailed instructions, and link to an explainer video.

This virtually pain-free method can be completed on yourself or a family member and is the most accurate way to understand your sensitivities.

When sending your sample back, don’t worry about how much it will cost, the kit includes a Postage paid envelope. When we’ve got your kit in our lab, it will be tested and processed. A detailed report is generated, which explains the level of your sensitivities in an easy to understand traffic light system. It does not end there, the report also includes nutritionally approved dietary advice for you to make immediate improvements.

The Basic Sensitivity Test identifies immune-mediated sensitivities, which produce IgG4 antibodies. You can consult your results within 7 days of your sample being received in our lab in the UK.

Should you have any questions, we have a trained customer service team who work 24-hours a day, Monday to Friday in order to respond to you immediately. When you purchase our easy to understand kit, you are not just buying our Sensitivity Test, but also our customer service.
