    I would like to ask the forum if food allergy tests are you can rely on. According to your personal experience is it worth to make them?
    I have spoken to the laboratory and they told me that such tests can be only done whilst you are not on any diet. Is it correct?

    I totally believe in them. Go for LEAP MRT or Cyrex Labs Array 10. Finding out my few food allergies has been so helpful. I think I need to try one of these for a bigger picture. I have heard excellent reviews of both.

    Thank you Spiffy. I will have to find a laboratory here in Australia.

    I had quite a few food allergy tests, and they came back with nothing. In my case, either the tests are not sensitive enough, or else I do not have any food allergies. Mine were blood tests. I believe the skin tests can give more sensitive results, though I’m not anyone’s idea of an expert in the matter.

    If it were a conventional doctor who ordered your labs, he or she probably only checked your IGE response to foods. In autoimmune, it is the IGG you need to be tested for. This is the delayed reactions to food. Blood food intolerance tests are superior to skin pricks from what I have studied.

    Note….what I mean by superior….I am talking about learning about food intolerances. Skin pricks are still good and necessary, but usually work best for outside irritants such as cat dander, dust mites, etc. These are also very important.
