As far as I am aware (I am not an expert but have read a lot) allergies can be tested but there is no real test for intolerances. Intolerances are diagnosed by a diet of exclusion. I can have some dairy, but the other day I had a latte in the morning and a in the afternoon - stupid! For some reason I am better with skim milk and cheese than the full cream variety - which I find weird.
Faerybec replied to AlysounRI's topic in Celiac Disease - Pre-Diagnosis, Testing & SymptomsIt is really tough isn't it. I am in the same situation. When I eat wheat or dairy I get nausea, pain then really sick. I have my gastroscopy and colonoscopy on next Thursday - should be tonnes of fun but at least we will know. I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome 6 years ago, and went on my merry way. I have seen a handful doctors, in that time about my GORD (reflux) as well as the mouth and stomach ulcers I have had for almost a decade. It wasn't until my son was diagnosed and his doctor said he would like to see me 2, that it even entered my head. It is amazing that it just takes one doctor who knows what they are doing. Best of luck with your test and 'the prep'.
