Dolphin Posted January 22, 2012 Share Posted January 22, 2012 Someone was recently talking to me about food intolerances and allergies. That they could be an underlying reason for a lot of my more minor health issues, as well as why I am having trouble losing weight. (insomnia, migraines, hair loss, etc...) So, I was told this by my pt. She can "sense" that I had food allergies. I did some research and it looks like I might. She told me that the blood test is only 50% accurate. I can not find any information supporting that. Can you tell me what you know about finding out medically if you have food intolerances. I know there are homeopaths, naturopaths etc... out there, but I wanted to find out hard medical science, what is the best way to find out about this. I am in no way dissing the natural medicines, I have a lot of people around me who don't believe in any of that. If I have a food intolerance, like gluten (and it looks like that is a possibility) I am going to need my extended families support. So I want to get tested in a way that they are going to be supporting me rather than making a joke about me "thinking I have a food allergy because someone waved a wand over me" type of comment. Oh, and my families attitude is not up for debate, it is what it is. I can not change people, just the way I react to them. Thank you.
