diagnostic tests

Hi there, could anyone please help.? I was in touch with Dr. Gilete recently in Barcelona after having a scan done privately in London on my neck. He said that although my scans weren't normal he wasn't totally convinced my neck issues were the cause of my symptoms. So he recommended I have 4 tests done. They are, gluten, MCAD, thyroid and HPA Axis. Two have been done on NHS. But MCAD and HPA axis have not. Can anyone recommend in UK where I can obtain these tests. Or if not further afield. Many thanks in advance.
