What's the most definitive test(s) for finding food intolerances?

"Elimination": Diets...which avoid the possible offending foods with "control periods" inbetween diet changes. See an allergist for a "program"! Hope this helps! Dr Z

None.: It is al comprehensive. Combination of once symptoms and physical exam and detailed dietary history which includes Food Journal . And then necessary blood tests and some times Endoscopy for the gastric Biopsy:-)
