I had been struggling with foods and had been looking at trying an intolerance/allergy test for a while. I had previously cut out dairy from my diet but never had it confirmed this was the issue. My results showed 100 for intolerance to dairy, so I am confident now with my choices and the accuracy of the test. It also showed some other mild allergies, which I was unaware of, but now make sense!

Still waiting on a response to my email requesting a refund. Results contradicted tests ran by GP. Really poor realiabity with results. Nutritionist picked what she thought I was allergic to out of the numerous things it showed on the results. Suggested an elimination diet, again highlighting the poor realiabity of blood work. Rang helpline had no answer. Online team were quick to respond and helpful but that's the only positive in my experience.

The process was very slick and I received my results efficiently and quickly. The report was clear and easy to read but I felt there could have been a more in-depth explanation about the results and what they could mean for me.

The results are easy to understand and there is an explanation regarding them and diets. However, it took more than expected to get the results back.

I bought the intolerance test and I got ridiculous results: apparently I am 100% intolerant to Milk and consequently Gouda cheese but Emmental cheese is perfectly fine - 0% intolerance. How am I supposed to take this seriously when both of these cheeses are made of cows milk and the only difference is that for one skimmed milk is needed. But that’s the same protein ! Very disappointed ☹️

Thank you for your review. This is not uncommon, as harder cheeses such as cheddar, Swiss, and parmesan are lower in lactose - these being the cheeses the attached report shows lower reactions to. Our testing tests for whole extracts rather than certain proteins, to ensure a reaction is detected if any sensitivity present. If this is the lactose content your body is reacting to, these items will test lower due to the lower lactose levels. We can see from our systems you have not yet booked in your free nutritional therapist consultation as part of your test package. We would recommend reaching out to our customer service team at info@lifelabtesting.com to book this in. Our qualified nutrition team will be able to provide more information on the levels shown in your report.

Took a while to process and had to chase twice, potentially this was as a result of postal delays

The Lifelab testing showed multiple IgE inhalant allergies plus cross reacting and other foods - 28 out of the 40 tested showed a problem. In order not to exclude large areas of my diet and to check,, I followed up with an ISAC component allergen test for 112 allergens at a well respected large laboratory in London and that test didn't show any IgE reactions at all. Who am I supposed to believe?

Thank you for the review. Our team did reach out via email to advise on the difference between the tests undertaken. As the different labs test for different components, the two test reports cannot be compared. If you do have any further questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact our customer service team at info@lifelabtesting.com

Struggled to get the required amount of blood - used both spikes’ but could have done with a 3rd one- need to follow the instructions more closely re exercising to get blood pumping! Results come through quickly. Alarmed at how many intolerances I have- all dairy/most pulses and lemon?! But after 2 weeks of not suffering any IBS issues I do believe it’s working.. still early days -

Ordering, delivery and instructions were good. I had great difficulty getting any blood droplets out. We used the two needles that were supplied but had to resort to sterilising needles and after the fourth finger managed to get the required amount of blood. The results were very interesting and mostly what I had thought although there were a couple of surprises.

I have eczema and roughly knew what foods and other things to avoid but needed scientific confirmation. Drawing blood from just the two given finger launcets wasn't enough so I bought a diabetic finger prick pen from Boots and really tried to increase my heart rate with more intense exercise. Despite this, I still think it was valuable for me

Satisfied with the delivery of the test result however the process was not as seamless as it is supposed to be. - The status of the test kit did not synchronise. It has never changed to 'in the lab' - 'processing'. - My test has included a consultation with nutritionist but I have never receieved as such.

Hi, we are very sorry for the error from the lab, not updating. However the NT appointment is for you to book, and our Customer Service team have phoned you twice to try and make this appointment. We hope once you speak to the team, you'll be so kind as to amend this review.

Thank you for your review! I am very sorry the test kit took some time to reach you. The order was dispatched on the Friday before a bank holiday Monday on a tracked 48 hour delivery and therefore would have delayed the kit arriving by a day, in addition to the weekend. We are very happy to hear you found the testing both quick and helpful!

Thank you for your review. We are very sorry to hear you are not satisfied with the testing and nutritional therapy service. Our nutritional therapist has advised you may not be allergic to all items in the report – this is partially due to cross-reactivity (cross-reactivity occurs where the proteins in one food or substance share characteristics with those in another food or substance. A person who is allergic to one may therefore have positive allergy tests to other foods with similar proteins), but also in your review you mention oranges – your report does list oranges in the intolerance section of the report. Intolerances (IgG) are very dependent on memory and therefore more likely to report back a reaction if consumed in the last 3 months. However, it is worth noting these are not allergies. Please do reach out to our team at info@lifelabtesting.com if you have any further questions, queries, or concerns and our team will be more than happy to help.

The kit requires you to provide quite a lot of blood. Two lancets are provided. I found it impossible, despite following their instructions to the letter. I returned the kit and asked for a refund. I was offered more lancets. Not fit for purpose I'm afraid.

Thank you for your review. I am pleased to confirm we have listened to and acted on the feedback provided by customers regarding our lancets. We do now have a new supplier of much more effective lancets. Our team would be happy to dispatch a replacement vial and new lancets to you to complete your testing and have been in contact again via email. I hope this helps.

Thank you for your feedback. From correspondence with our team, we have confirmed your sample was no longer suitable for testing on arrival at our lab. Our team made contact to arrange a replacement kit free of charge for you. As a refund was your preferred option, our accounts team processed this as a priority. We are very sorry you did not wish to complete the testing and wish you all the best.
