Before requesting for any test, a careful history taking and thorough physical examination should be done to rule out an allergic reaction since they all present with almost similar clinical features. Tests of other diseases that present with similar symptoms should also be ordered to rule out those infections.

  • Elimination of the presumed meals causing the reactions and reintroducing them one after duration of two weeks before another to confirm whether they really cause the problems experienced.
  • Mediator release testing that induces peripheral cell immunity response can also be helpful in determining which kind of food one reacts to as it gives the ratio of liquids solid level when the blood is exposed and testing matter incubated with it.. The immune reaction induced is measured in blood which is assumed to be caused by antigens in food. It makes one have severe headache and fibromyalgia. The doctor thereafter is able to give the client the list of food not to eat and assist her coming up with a menu comprising to take in for a week and if effects turn positive other foods can be added slowly. Statistics have showed that this method is highly accurate as its accuracy is between 90%-95%.
  • Elisa IgG also show the amount of IgG that specific foods produce thus elevated production of these antibodies becomes risky to one‘s health. This test does not determine responses elicited to additives present in food.
  • The ALCAT test which uses the same mechanism as mediator release testing but its less accurate and reliable compared to mediator release testing.
