The only test I know is a self-administered elimination diet.  Cut out all gluten for 3 to 6 months and then re-introduce it.  Record your symptoms as you go.  If they change you may have your answer.  Some times NCGS is actually FODMAP intolerance per current thinking.  That's another route to explore.

I am wondering why you're asking specifically about NCGI. Have you been tested for celiac disease?

There isn't really a formal diagnosis, because there's not yet a test for it, although that may soon change, there's some promising work ongoing on detecting new markers. It's yet to reach the mainstream medical community however. Of course that won't stop people taking your money off you.

Your test at present would be to go through celiac testing process. If that's negative but you react to the gluten free diet then you could be diagnosed as ncgs by exclusion. At that point you may want to try the fodmaps diet as the Monash university study suggested that many who reported a reaction to gluten were actually reacting to fodmaps. 

However the ultimate arbiter of your health is you. If you come out of the other side of the diagnostic process without a firm diagnosis you need to decide for yourself on the evidence you have available what you're going to do. For me it was lifetime exclusion of gluten from my diet and with it the resolution or drastic improvement of a series of symptoms from GI to neurological.

Best of luck :)

The reason I am asking is for myself and my Son. who is 10 years old. He is showing the symptoms. 

There aren't any.  You can get him tested for Celiac disease, which is a good idea to do before you make him gluten free.

Having negative basic testing... my diagnosis was going gluten-free and finding I felt better 3.5 yrs ago.  No looking back.  We have fine tuned even more now with no dairy, no soy, no chocolate, no coffee, no artificial sweeteners, limited eggs and peppers, no white potatoes, no rancid vegetable oils, very low carb and high fat.  Life is good again!  Those food pyramids by the government are just plain wrong!  The human body does NOT require any carbs for health.  Triggering an insulin response repeatedly leads to insulin resistance, obesity, cancer and a whole host of other diseases!  I was shocked when I found all this out.  How I wish I'd known this when my children were growing up.  We didn't learn any of this in nursing school!
