How to test if you have an intolerance to certain foods
You may be referred to a food and nutrition specialist (dietitian) if a GP thinks you have a food intolerance. Tests you may have include:
A special diet where you avoid eating the food you might be intolerant to, to see if your symptoms get better – after a few weeks you start eating the food again to see if your symptoms return
A breath test if you might be lactose intolerant
You may also be asked to keep a food and symptoms diary to help work out what may be triggering your symptoms.
