About Our Alpha-Lactalbumin Allergy Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This IgE allergy test uses a blood sample to determine if you are allergic to Alpha-Lactalbumin (ALA), the most common protein found in breast milk. ALA is also found in cow's milk.
ALA is a protein that makes up about 5% of the total protein in cow's milk. Cow's milk is made up of multiple proteins, and it is possible to be allergic to many milk proteins.
Milk that comes from cows, buffalo, sheep, goats, humans, etc., is made up of the same or very structurally similar proteins. It is common to be allergic to one or many proteins in milk, and to be allergic to more than one milk type.
Traditional allergy tests utilize the Skin Prick method (also known as a Puncture or Scratch test) to determine whether an allergic reaction will occur by inserting possible triggers into your skin using a needle prick. If you are allergic to the substance, you are forced to suffer through your body's reaction to the allergen. HealthLabs.com offers an easier, virtually pain-free blood test to determine the allergen status of substances without the irritation of traditional skin prick tests.
- No painful skin pricks
- No fasting necessary
- Accurate results within 1 to 2 days.
