Food Allergy Testing

Childhood food allergies are common in Brisbane. We offer a range of options for identifying and managing food allergies.

 This food allergy test is performed in our Brisbane clinics. A small blood sample is taken via a lancet, not a needle, and is sent to accredited allergy testing laboratory US Biotek. This laboratory has been independently audited as provding the most accurate food allergy testing results over it's competitors.

IgG, IgE or IgA antibodies can be detected for common allergens such as wheat, milk, eggs, nuts and grains. The lab fee for the test is $249 for general allergies. If you are on a budget, we suggest you come for an initial consult with our Naturopath or Nutritionist before we perform the allergy test.  We can often identify possible allergy triggers by analysing your child's diet and symptoms. You can try following our advice for a few weeks and if no improvement is made, then we progress to allergy testing.
