What is Allergy Testing?
At the Westoe Practice, we are able to test for any negative effects that many different substances including food types, pollens, additives, chemicals, perfumes and metals have on your body which may present as allergies, intolerance’s or sensitivities.
Allergy is the term used to describe an adverse (bad) reaction that the body has to a particular substance. We recognise that allergies, intolerances or sensitivities are very common and affect around one in four people in the UK at some time in their lives. The number of people affected by allergies rises every year. Allergic reactions can cause a range of symptoms. Some can be quite mild, and some are more serious.
It is possible to test for a wide range of substances that could be causing a negative effect on your body including foods, additives, pesticides, pollens, animal hair, household products and chemicals.
