#740311 Reliable Food Intolerance Testing

Posted by on 20 October 2011 - 10:09 AM

Yes, I guess that's the most important detail... If our health improves when we are gluten-free, it doesn't really matter what the medical profession tells us. The proof is in the pudding!

Thanks again, guys! :)

#728596 Reliable Food Intolerance Testing

Posted by on 08 September 2011 - 06:59 AM


This is my first post on the Celiac.com Forum. A few weeks ago my lab results (blood work) tested positive for Celiac Disease (or gluten-intolerance). My gastroenterologist has since scheduled me in mid-October to have an endoscopy for the purpose of taking a biopsy of the villi in my small intestines. Of course, I've been contending with many typical (and a some atypical) symptoms of celiac disease for many years.

I've been told that many people with Celiac disease also have intolerances to other foods as well.

Question: Are there any food-intolerance tests which are scientifically proven to be reliable?

It seems everything I read on the Internet suggests that the reliability of most food-intolerance tests is not very good. Incidentally, I live in Ontario, Canada. I'd be looking for some testing procedure which would be available locally.

Many thanks...
