What Home Testing Options Do I Have?

Recommended Posts

I basically want to test for eggs, soy, wheat, and dairy, but cannot afford to spend too much money. What options do I have? And delivered in the United States.

I hope someone can help, and I would appreciate it a lot :) Thank you!

And also links and prices of course, if possible. Any guidance will be so appreciated!

Depends on if you want to be tested for an allergic reaction (IgE) or a delayed allergy/intolerance (IgG). There are a couple companies that do testing, but many are blood draws and would require a dr. Enterolab does IgG testing and is a stool test.

However, the most cost effective and probably the most accurate way to test for an IgG is doing an elimination diet. It doesn't cost any money or require a visit to the dr.

I had the 96 food sensitivity done at Alletess Medical Laboratory. It was only $99.00 for this testing. They supply the kit and directions. You can find information at http://www.foodallergy.com
