We now offer online ordering for specific breath tests due to repeated requests for reliable testing. Most, but not all countries allow import of the test sugars, including the USA, Canada and Australia. The validated tests1 for food intolerances can now be performed at home or anywhere convenient. The test kit consists of instructions, glass tubes for breath samples, and the desired test sugar. The test kit will arrive by post or courier and the completed test is returned to us using the same packaging.
These tests should not be performed in children under the age of 6 years or in patients with hereditary fructose intolerance, HFI. Please read the following links before choosing your tests:
Cost of tests including outward shipping is CHF 198.- for shipping within Europe and 212.- for outside Europe.
Return shipping is arranged by buyer. Cost in Swiss francs and inclusive of shipping costs. Use converter to see cost in another currency.
Shipment from Food Intolerance Diagnostics will be effected in the week of your order and we will confirm the shipment date by email. The test must be returned to us in the original container within 2 weeks to ensure adequate protection of the tubes.
The results of the tests with recommendations will be emailed to you by unencrypted email to the address you have provided us within a week of the receipt of your test materials. The results will include a professional analysis of the breath test results, implications and links to the proposed dietary modifications. This process does not replace appropriate healthcare consultation or individual advice by your doctor. In case of positive food intolerance test results expert dietary advice is recommended.

Please be aware that several other diseases may cause similar symptoms or signs to those provoked by food intolerances and we recommend you consult your doctor about your symptoms for exclusion of diseases other than food intolerances. Breath testing for gastrointestinal symptoms will not exclude inflammatory or cancer or any other diseases. Food intolerance may be caused by underlying diseases, such as celiac’s disease or inflammatory bowel disease, again emphasizing the need for you to consult with your doctor about your symptoms. During the breath testing you will be swallowing sugars that may provoke symptoms. This is obviously part of the test procedure and result. However, this is another reason why we recommend you perform the diagnostic process under the guidance of your doctor.
