Doctor

A:   Hello. welcome to ask the doctor.
If your tests have been done and no allergy is being found to any kind of food, then you may take food without fear of allergy.
Weight loss can be due to number of reasons. You require a complete evaluation to make diagnosis.
If the investigations you mentioned have already been done with no negative findings , then i will advise you to get anti TTG antibodies done. This test is done to check for gluten hypersensitivity. It is one of a very common reason for undue weight loss.
you can share my opinion with your doctor.
i hope it helps.
Take care.
