Has anyone had pre-paleo or baseline blood tests done in Ontario? How much, if any, was covered by OHIP? Is there any differences between blood tests offered here vs the States? i.e are they called by different names or anything, so I know for sure what to ask for?

I paid almost $500 to be tested for food intolerances. I did it through my naturopath. Not cheap, but it was worth it.

My husband had a VAP test done at his own request, and it cost $325!! It's not covered by OHIP or QHIP (we live in West Quebec and have a family doctor in Ottawa ON). We think the VAP test was totally worth paying for out-of-pocket, but that won't be possible for everyone.

OHIP will cover all the basic tests, they will not cover VitD3 or some of the less standard lipid testing however you can usually pay for those your self.
Lipo (a) etc somewhere around $35, VitD3 is around $65

My parents forced me (I'm 17) last Thursday to do so as they think I'm a lunatic and want me in a psychiatric ward for the way I eat. But... as far as I know it was covered by OHIP.

i have looked into blood testing privately, but it seems lab can only release results to a doctor. i know mine will not request tests for me just because i ask for them, so i am considering a naturopath for access. hopefully this thread will reveal other options.
