The first step food intolerence test has arrived – thought it might be today and when I heard a louder than normal bump from the post arriving I ran to check and there it was. All packaged up in a green box almost like a mini first aid kit.
At this stage I was feeling no apprehension and was pretty gun ho about doing the test. So I unpackaged everything and took out the instructions…
The slightly large blob of blood I think is what started my decline. However online not a million miles from here Fellow Fussy Foodie Claire was also opening her test and going for it. So it was at this point I had to brave it, you literally have to use this mini popper that inserts a tiny weeny lance into your finger tip and breaks the surface to make you bleed. Lets just say, I am a complete wally and it didn’t really hurt at all, so if you are doing this test just go for it!
Once you have the drop of blood, a special stick sucks up all the blood ready to be used as a sample by YORKTEST.
So the Food Intolerence test is back now in the post off to YORKTEST labs to carry out their Food Intolerance blood tests. Really intrigued to see what it comes back with.
