I found a blood test on this web site, but was hesitant to publish in reply after reading Terms of Agreement.
If you have not already found it keep searching; you will find it as well.

Keep a food diary and make note of bowel changes. Then eliminate items identified as suspect. I recommended a gluetin-free diet to a friend who had celiac disease and was a nurse. She said it made such a difference and she felt much better and would stop limiting her diet and she would start to feel bad again. Consistency is key!
