Has anyone done the (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) test? How much more accurate is it than an IgA or IgG test?

As for what I am eating, just regular run-of-the-mill gluten-free stuff, for example, fish, pork, beef, chicken, shrimp, corn, potatoes, gluten-free bread, crackers, a few cookies here and there :), salad, nuts, dried fruit, fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs, milk (LF) and other dairy products (LF with lactase enzyme).

My GE thinks that the bloating/gas is coming from the lactose, but I know it isn't, because I had been off of dairy for six months before he told me to start taking the lactase and go back on a LF dairy diet. So I did, and nothing changed.

Stomach acid...yeah, possibly. The majority of my stomach pain (ache) went away after starting prevacid. However I still seem to be producing a lot of gas so the last time I went to see him I was told to double the prevacid (2 30mg tabs/day). Nothing has changed.

I read up on bloating/over production of gas (in general), and the book said that it could be due to malabsorption and/or not enough good bacteria (among others, but these were the two reasons I thought most applicable). The others were reasons like gastritis, IBS, and parasites. Anyone have any input on this?

Oh, and I was also thinking that perhaps my system might just be taking a long time to heal...but it's got to be more than that...cause it wouldn't make sense that there would be hardly a sign of improvement after 6 months, would it?...

Thanks :)

On thing that I did not mention when I first posted this that may/may not make a difference to your replies would be that around two months ago I began to take prevacid (acid reduction), which helped to get rid of most of the stomach/abdominal pain I was feeling every time after eating and throughout the day. However, as I mentioned before, the bloating persists, with the occasional pain/cramp between the belly button and rib cage (on the front). If you place your hand directly above the belly button, the pain is in the area of the palm.

Could it really be corn/soy/eggs? I've definitely heard of it before, but how does one test for it? Do you have to be referred or something?
