Food Intolerance Testing

We use LORISIAN Healthcare Laboratory Testing Servicewww.lorisian.com
Why test?
We understand that food intolerance can be difficult to live with. People with food intolerance issues tend to have problems digesting two or three primary foods, along with a small number of secondary foods and simply restricting or eliminating these foods from your diet may be all it takes to make a big improvement to your health and wellbeing. Our Food Intolerance Testing Service can help you find out which food (or foods) your body is intolerant to.
What is food intolerance and what are its symptoms?
Food intolerance is an adverse reaction to food you've eaten. It's rarely serious, but it can make you feel very unwell. The most common symptoms of food intolerance include bloating, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain, skin irritation and tiredness. But it's possible not to notice the symptoms for hours or even days, and they can be constant if you eat the food that's affecting you often.
How do I get tested?
To get the food intolerance testing service phone or call in to Dunville Pharmacy and ask a member of the pharmacy team will arrange an appointment for a time that is convenient for you.
What does the service involve?
We will take a few drops of blood from a small pinprick to your finger. Your sample is tested for IgG antibodies, which your body makes more of when it's intolerant to food. The antibodies are then measured to work out which foods may be causing the reaction. Once your results are in, we'll ask you back to the store to discuss them and suggest ways you can change your diet to help you feel better. Remember it is important to stick to a balanced diet at all times and for this reason you will also be referred to your GP or dietician for long term management of any intolerance identified.
Is food intolerance the same as food allergy?
No, allergies and intolerances are very different. A food allergy is a bad reaction to food that affects your immune system directly. If you have an allergy, you'll usually feel symptoms within a few minutes of coming into contact with the food. Symptoms include rashes, swelling and breathing difficulties which can be life threatening in some cases.
What are the charges?
Prices start from 150€ for the basic test checking for 50 different foods. For more information - please talk to a member of staff. ≈

Blood Pressure Test

A blood pressure test measures the pressure in your arteries as your heart pumps.

Checks are done to look for ongoing health conditions, including prehypertension, high blood pressure (hypertension), low blood pressure (hypotension), heart disease or other conditions.

You should have a blood pressure test performed at least once every two years to screen for high blood pressure as a risk factor for heart disease and stroke, starting at age 18. If you are age 40 or older, or you are age 18-39 with a high risk of high blood pressure, ask for a blood pressure reading every year.

Just pop in - this service is free of charge. If it is busy you may have to wait few minutes or call back at a quieter time.
