If you really are interested in how food allergies are to be tested, diagnosed and treated...this link will take you to the true medical guidelines:

This is based on research evidence.

I was shocked my insurance covered it too! I would never pay for a test I have never heard. But, since I know I have food sensitivites (discussed my REAL doc) and have never really had any testing around it I figured this test can't do any harm. I am very interested to see what the results are and if they match up with what I already know about my body and certain foods.

Has anyone had the ALCAT test done? I went to a new chiropractor yesterday who offered the test and since my insurance covered it I figured it can't hurt. All of articles I have read say that the test is unproven in detecting food allergies but they don't state much about food intolerances. I know (at least I am pretty sure) I don't have any food allergies but I know I am sensitive to dairy and dark chocolate.

My question is have you have this test done and followed the recommendations from the results? Did it help you feel better? I am not interested in it as a way to loose weight but as a way to keep my body and stomach happy with my food choices.
