Allergy Testing in London - recommendations?

(10 Posts)

I suffer from near constant sickness and diarrhoea and also frequent headaches. I have been told time and time again that it is just IBS but I am sure that there must be something that I am allergic or intolerant to.

I had an allergy test when I was about 13 and it didn't come up with any major allergic reactions which is why they have said that it is not a reaction to anything. I think it's possible that a bodies tolerance can change and I am hoping to go and get privately tested just to rule things out.

Can anyone recommend a consultant in London who they have had a good experience with?

I also suffer from eczema and hayfever.

Try getting tested by an Asyra Pro Practitioner. There are a few in London

Hi Ewe, Dr Lack (at the Portland) is brilliant. He treats our DS 3 years old allergic to some nuts.
Good luck!

Sorry, Prof. Lack! He is brilliant, and also has a lovely manner.

Yes Dr Lack is brilliant. He treats our DD at St Thomas's (NHS). Don't know if he does NHS work for adults though, may only be private?

Yes, not sure about adults as he is an allergist pediatrician...
