Gluten Sensitivity?

02 September 2013 - 10:14 AM

I already posted this under "Adult Acne" before I realized there was a Diet section....

Hi all,
I just joined this site today. I'm 39 years old and have been dealing with acne as long as I can remember. However, the last 3 -4 months have been the worst of my life! Deep, painful, ugly cystic acne....lovely! It's taken a toll on me or sure....visibly and mentally. So, my next game plan is to get tested for gluten sensitivity. I see on the forums that some folks have tried this. I got blood work done a year ago and it came back negative, but I've been researching and found out that the stool test available online is much more accurate (http://www.enterolab.com). Has anyone ordered from this site and if so, did you order just the $99 gluten sensitivity kit or do you think I should also test sensitivity to dairy, soy, & egg as well (more expensive, but maybe worth it). Suggestions? Thanks!
