I'm intending to go for a blood test probably in a few weeks' time... It's one of the few things that can help set my family's mind at ease with this "weird" diet I'm on. Anyways, I'm looking for suggestions on what sort of tests I should be ordering. I've been on low fodmap (very little plant material except carrots/celery/some tomatoes here and there) for a few months, so naturally one of my concerns is deficiencies. Anyone knows what are the tests I should be ordering in this case?
Any advice will be welcome. Thanks!

I asked a similar question awhile back. If you search the words insurance and endocrinologist here on hacks you will find the answers I got. The mostcomprehensive answer was a link to the jack Krause site. He's kinda out there but very scientific and his list was so comprehensive everything the others answered was duplicated (according to my doc). My insurance would not cover some and some she explained were just not necessary (vit D deficiency, I like in Washington, she said of course your deficient, supplement). So check out his link.
