    Surely if there is a history if it in your family, then your GP should do the testing?

    My OH is unable to have diary and recently went to his GP for testing of other intolerances as he's been quite poorly with other foods.

    I dont think gp would do it unless baby has actual symptoms of intolerance which wont really be until baby is weaned on solids.. But i want to knw before hand... As prevention is better than cure imo... As eating foods can cause intestinal damage aswell as causing other symptoms x

    Hmmm, how about calling them and asking. I would have thought they should do it as there is history. Good luck hun :flower: xx

    Thanx.. Also i dnt think gps test specific foods.. Jus common allergies such as diary, egg etc whereas private clinics do specific tests for over 600 individual foods xx
