2.1 If the Customer has ordered a Food Intolerance Test
PINNERTEST’s tests are NOT designed to, nor will The Customer results indicate, that The Customer (may) suffer an allergic reaction to those individual foods or food groups covered by the test The Customer has ordered. PINNERTEST accepts no responsibility for any condition or symptoms The Customer may develop caused by an allergic reaction to certain foods or food groups. Please note that PINNERTEST’s food intolerance tests are not guaranteed to identify food reactions The Customer suffers from; particularly in the following circumstances:
2.1.1 Where any food or food group has not been regularly consumed as part of The Customer diet for at least 2 months prior to the test; or
2.1.2 Where the Customer is taking prescribed drugs such as immunosuppressant’s, cytotoxic drugs, or steroids.
2.1.3 PINNERTEST advises The Customer to consult your medical practitioner if you are concerned about your symptoms, also to consult your medical practitioner with your test results, particularly in the following circumstances:
2.1.4 If you are unsure of the difference between food sensitivities, food intolerance or food allergies; or
2.1.5 where you are taking any prescribed drugs or medication.
2.1.6 Please note: Raised levels of IgG antibodies within your blood indicate that an IgG antibody reaction to a particular food has occurred. If you have already taken the decision to eliminate a particular food and have not been eating that food for over a month, it may not show up on your results. This is because the level of IgG within your blood will have reduced because of the elimination. If you know the eliminated food is something that triggers your symptoms, do not start eating it again just to confirm this through the test. We do not want to encourage you to eat a food which you already know is a problem for you.
PLEASE NOTE: The presence of IgE antibodies is an indication that you may be allergic to that particular substance (allergen) but is not a definite diagnosis on its own. If you have previously been advised of an allergy but your AllergyCheck result does not show a positive result, you must continue to avoid that known allergen. If you are not currently suffering from clinical symptoms, or you have been avoiding a known allergen this can affect your AllergyCheck results and reactions may not show up as positive.
