You may choose to have a simple £25.00 Phlebotomy appointment in which to be tested with this Milk and Milk Proteins Profile Allergy Test.  However – if the results are showing abnormalities then you will need a GP consultation to have the results explained to you.

There is a huge difference between intolerance and allergy. Milk allergy is an immune condition whereas intolerance is not.

Milk allergy is an abnormal response by the body's immune system to milk and products containing milk. 

Immune conditions can potentially be life threatening whereas intolerances are not.

Our allergy component testing may be a better option for you than our single allergy tests.
