Food Intolerance

What do people think of food intolerance blood tests?

Anyone had one done?

Better than trial and error I guess although the obvious starting point is to eliminate things like processed, startches and gluten.

Think Scott did something similar with Phil Richards but maybe not into so much detail?

I had some done by York Laboratories; pricey, and ultimately confirmed what I already suspected (wheat and dairy are bad news) but worth it at the time as I was pretty crook.

A cheaper yet still effective alternative would be to go and see a kinesiologist, they are remarkably astute at this sort of thing.

shut up Jule!

Spit - agree - i found this lot that do it from home. So you just prick yourself with a pin they provide send it back and they give you a reading.

That's the badger- that 'first step' test looks like a waste of a tenner though, if it comes back negative I'll eat my hat. Just meant to pique your interest for the £245 real deal, which was what I went for, and gives you a breakdown of all sorts of different food. Apparently I should only eat tahini sparingly, shock horror!

In my case probably yes, because I was really quite ill at the time. Also seeing 'exclude gluten and dairy from your diet' in black and white probably give me the kick up the arse I needed to really make the change.

As I say though it is a lot of money, and for £40 a good kinesiologist will likely give you the same info, so that would be my first port of call.

No, not quite the same thing. I had a blood microscopist analysis done. Live Blood and dried blood. Very interesting and very useful imo. You just have to make sure you get someone who is very good at it and can thus interpret what they see accurately.

Surely you can get a good idea of what foods don't go down well with you yourself? I mean, there's the main allergy foods, which encompass the majority of food intolerances. If you eat them and get dodgy guts or feel cruddy afterwards, you're likely intolerant. I don't see the need to spend hundreds of quids? Milk gives me the farts and squits so I avoid completely. Cottage cheese bungs my nose up, avoid. Bread is a bit better but can get bloted, so I limit that.

tbh if you just eat real foods, you'll massively limit the number of foods that can cause a reaction.
