    Default Food intolerance

    Where can I get tested for food intolerance? Does it cost or does medicare cover it? Can my GP do it?

    There are cheap tests and expensive ones. Pretty sure a GP could do a basic one for you or refer you to someone who can. My DH had very expensive tests but they were highly specialized and not covered at all by medicare. I'm sure the test for coeliacs would be covered.

    Allergy/intolerance tests are covered by medicare if you go through the clinic at your local hospital - sometimes the wait times are huge.
    Coeliac testing can be done by your gp and is covered by medicare usually (you better ask your dr before you go ahead though just in case.

    Where r u? My allergist was cheaper than the naturopath, unfortunately I only found that out after spending a fortune at the naturopath and having to go to the allergist anyway.
