How accurate are food allergy tests? Is it worth it to get one done if I am having digestive issues?


Q: How accurate are food allergy tests? Is it worth it to get one done if I am having digestive issues?
 

A: The food allergy test is at best only 60-80% accurate; it gives you a very rough place to start. A detailed food history and an astute clinical correlation is key and far more helpful.
