As I'm on a waiting list I anticipate greatly what will come of all this and exactly what tests are usually done!

Is it all arm pricking or do they do blood work?

Will the allergist be able to tell me exactly what I'm allergic to, meaning he'll test for everything?(how can that be?)

Is it 100% accurate, meaning if he says I'm not allergic to shellfish and then eat it I won't have a reaction?

If I have to pay for extra non-ohip testing what do you recommend?

The ELIZA and RAST??? Is this protocol or do I have to ask for it and what will it tell me?

I'd love to hear that I'll come out will some knowledge and plan of attack other than elimination, or what's the point?

Thanks for your input!

In the spring edition of Allergic Living (just out) there is great information about the different types of allergy tests.

I think this wil answer your questions.
