I have decided to have a foodscan intolerance test by York Test people, which is brave of me because it involves pin-pricking a finger to get blood out, and I hate needles. I managed to survive it a few years ago when I did the last one so will this time. I originally wanted to do one in a Holland & Barretts but they only test during the week and I didn't want to take time off work just for that. So I have decided to have it done properly, in the comfort of my own home. I only did the First Step test last time and this time if I get a positive result (I'm intolerant to a food) then I will go on to do the Second Step test which scans for 113 foods. I won't have to do another pin-prick test if I apply within 30 days of the last test because they can use the same blood sample. If I do this then that will be it and I won't do it again because I will know one way or another what I am intolerant to and what not. So watch this space as I will put the results on an entry here.
