Food Intolerances


#1

Hi guys,

I got my food intolerance test back the other day and finding it a major ball ache see below:-

Avoid:-
Egg White, Cows Milk, Egg Yolk, Barley, Gluten, Wheat, Almond, Brazil nut, Cashew, Coconut, Hazelnut, Yeast.

Limit:-
Beef, Soybean, Chilli Pepper, Sesame Seed, Coffee.

I've cut all these out over the past week and i've started dropping pounds already which isn't the idea as i want to bulk a bit! Anyone else intolerant to these foods struggle to even buy things in shops?

what type of test did you get? hair test?

Also curious what's your blood type?

These tests are unproven and non-standardized and are NOT RECOMMENDED for the diagnosis of food allergy... please see http://www.foodallergy.org/document.doc?id=238

Blood Type O, and it was a IgG/IgG4 test.

Which tests are legit then bulletprooftiger ??

These are some of the most reliable:
Allergen-Specific Serum IgE, skin prick tests, elimination diet. A physician who understands the value of these is something to look for and can help to make sense of your medical history and symptoms. These are not the only tests, but are good go-to's. Depending on (continued) symptoms, other tests exist. A good discussion is here: http://www.niaid.nih.gov/topics/foodallergy/clinical/documents/faguidelinesexecsummary.pdf
