Food intolerance issue (bloat and loss of appetite)

This is my problem, I get very bloated from something i'm eating at the moment, it also has caused my appetite to drop and acid reflux to develop. If i wanted to know exactly what foods are doing this to me would this test tell me??

    possibly. A friend had one done (had spots, rashes, bloating, farting(reeeal nasty ones), stomach pains etc) from 'york' I think. turns out he was intollerant to a number of foods, and with his diet in check he seems to be doing ok now.

    Have you tried? i read James's article on the subject and he says most nhs trusts dont even hire an allergist because of costs.
    I'm only looking into it for aestetic reasons, not sure they would refer me for that.

    i know its a slow process but cant you cut 1 thing out every few days to see if you feel better to try to locate which food it is? cheaper and will save all the trips to the docs.

    Dave - don't waste your money on that test. Do you have any idea of which foods upset you?

    I think its pasta that is the main culprit however i think other sources may do it a little.

    What I would do then is simply exclude wheat and wheat products in their entirety from your diet for two weeks and monitor symtoms, then report back here.

    I mean all wheat though and check ingredients lists
