I've heard of Food allergies: Diagnostic tests on kids with autism. What kind of tests are there? How can I insist on these tests for my son without offending his current doctors?

    The list of diagnostic tests mentioned in various sources as used in the diagnosis of Food allergies includes:
    Diet diary
    Elimination diet - remove the suspect food and see if the allergy is avoided.
    Skin challenge tests
    Diet changes - chaging the diet can test whether a particular food is the cause.
    Double-blind food challenge
    Cytotoxicity testing - a controversial test of dubious value.
    Subcutaneous provocative challenge - a controversial test of dubious value.
    Immune complex assay - a controversial test of dubious value.
    IgG subclass assay - a controversial test of dubious value.
