Istnieje wiele niekonwencjonalnych metod diagnostycznych i testów laboratoryjnych, których zastosowanie w diagnostyce alergii na pokarmy sugerowane jest czasami przez lekarzy, dietetyków czy zwolenników tzw. nurtu „ekologii klinicznej”, medycyny alternatywnej oraz samych pacjentów. Wyniki tych testów często nie są powtarzalne i nie ma wystarczających badań, które potwierdzałyby ich użyteczność kliniczną w wykrywaniu alergii czy nietolerancji pokarmowej. Pośród tych metod wyróżnić można, zarówno testy in vitro (m.in. alergenowoswoiste IgG, badanie mikrobiomu), jak i badania wykonywane ex vivo (m.in. testy cytotoksyczne) w materiale pobranym od pacjenta oraz próby prowadzone in vivo (m.in. puls test, irydologia, testy elektrodermalne czy testy VEGA). Twórcy i propagatorzy tych testów twierdzą, że ujawniają one „ukryte alergie”, których nie da się wykryć uznanymi metodami. Wszelkie tego typu niekonwencjonalne testy i metody o nieudokumentowanej przydatności klinicznej, nie są zalecane do stosowania w diagnozowaniu alergii pokarmowej.

There are a number of unconventional diagnostic methods and laboratory tests whose application in diagnosis of food allergy is sometimes suggested by physicians, dietetitians or advocates of the so called „clinical ecology”, atrenative medicine practicioners and by patients themselves. The results of such tests are not reproductible and there is lack of research to confirm their clinical usefulness in detecting allergies or food intolerance. Among these methods there are both in vitro tests (food-specific IgG testing, microbiome analysis), ex vivo tests (cytotoxic testing) on the samples collected from the patient and in vivo trials (pulse test, iridology, electrodermal tests or VEGA tests). The creators and propagators of these tests maintain that they detect „hidden allergies” which cannot be diagnosed by means of recognized medical tests. It is unnadvisable to apply any of such unconventional and unproved methods in diagnosing food allergy.
