Diagnosis

Diagnosis of food allergies is achieved through allergy skin testing and blood testing. In cases in which chronic gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms and other health problems exist, an endoscopy may be performed to determine the presence of allergic blood cells (eosinophils) in the lining of the GI tract, often the source of the GI symptoms.
