I’ve got my results….. what next?

Congratulations – you’ve taken the first step towards improving your health. Just a few more simple steps…

  1. What do your results mean?
    Once you have your Foodprint® results, you may need to make some changes to your diet.
    You will have received a Foodprint® patient pack which will include your test results, as well as the Patient Support Guide.
    Your Patient Support Guide will help you to understand what food intolerance is and how it differs from the food allergy.
    It will also show you how to interpret your results to identify which foods you react most strongly to – they will be highlighted red or orange.
    Foods which are highlighted in RED should be avoided for short period.
    Foods which are highlighted in Orange can be eaten once or twice a week.
    Foods highlighted green are those where there is no reaction and which can be eaten freely.
  2. Use your Guidebook in the Patient support pack to help you make changes
    Comprehensive guidance is given on how you can modify your diet safely by eliminating your trigger foods, how to choose suitable alternative foods to replace them and how to rotate foods from the same group so you avoid future intolerances.

    Before You Change

    Nutrition and health go hand in hand and there are some things you should consider before you change your dietary regimen.
    • If you have a medical condition, are pregnant or on medication it is advisable to discuss your proposed dietary change with a health professional e.g. a doctor, dietician or nutritionist.
    • Plan and organise your meals in advance as much as possible. By collecting recipe ideas using your non-reactive foods and shopping ahead you are less likely to struggle with what to eat.
    • Focus on all the good foods you can eat, rather than those it is recommended you avoid.
    • When eliminating a food from your diet, try to replace with another food from that food group which does not show a positive reaction.
    • Continue to avoid a food if you have evidence that it is having an effect on you, even if it is negative in your FoodPrint® test.
    • Recognise what food products contain your reactive foods. Many ready-made meals and sauces contain a variety of ingredients that you may not have necessarily associated with the product, so it is important to always check the labels.
    • It is very important to maintain a healthy, nutritious diet. By eating a variety of foods you will obtain a wide range of nutrients and will reduce the risk of further intolerances.
  • Follow the elimination diet for at least 3 months – Elimination phase
    By removing trigger foods from your diet for 3 months, IgG antibody levels to the food will reduce to within normal ranges, along with the resultant inflammation leading to improvement in symptoms and overall health.
  • Reintroducing foods back into your diet – Provocation phase
    After 3 months, you can reintroduce positive foods back into your diet, but it is recommended that you do this one food at a time (allow 7 days between reintroduction of each food), start by eating small amounts of the food, and monitor to see if symptoms return.If symptoms do return then the food needs to be eliminated permanently.
