When I had my original food intolerance test back in September, I opted for the test that only tested 90 some foods because I naively thought that I only had two food intolerances–dairy and soy. Boy, was I wrong! Also, at the time, my doctor’s office wouldn’t bill insurance for this test because it was denied so often, so I had to pay out of pocket. Of course, I paid for the cheapest test.
When the test came back and showed 26 intolerances, I knew I was in trouble. What other foods was I intolerant to but didn’t know about because they weren’t included on the test?
The doctor’s office changed testing companies, so the price for the more comprehensive test was cheaper than before AND the new company would bill insurance, so I decided in December to take that test. I just got the results back this week, and I certainly do have more intolerances than the smaller test showed.
To try to make this as clear as possible, this is how I will distinguish:
Those in black print are the intolerances I had in October and still have.
Those in red print that are
crossed out are intolerances I had in October that are now gone
Those in blue print are intolerances I just discovered thanks to the more comprehensive test or are new intolerances I developed since October (new since October have a *).
These are my intolerances, yes, all 57 of them:
Eggs (Yolks and Whites)
Yeast (Baker’s and Brewer’s)
Condiments & Seasonings
Black Eyed Peas
