Sorry if my post is going to confuse things…I don’t know what the ELISA test is specifically, but please research its validity and reliability before taking it. When I researched food intolerance only two main tests that were recommended over and over in different sources were either a hydrogen breath test or a food elimination diet.

Lactose intolerance: hydrogen breath test (consume a lactose liquid)
Fructose malabsorption: hydrogen breath test (consume fructose liquid)
wheat intolerance: Not sure how this is tested??

Cealiac disease: Blood test

From all the research I did when I was investigating food intolerance I don’t think that there is a test that can effectively test for all 3 or more intolerances at once. It may be more beneficial to begin a food elimination diet so you can narrow down the choices to one you think it could possibly be. One way is to pick a food intolerance you think it could be and rule out this food group for a month and see how things go if there is no improvement add that food group back in and eliminate a different food group.

Good luck!
