About Our Ascaris (Common Roundworm) Allergy Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This IgE blood allergy test will determine if you are allergic to Ascaris parasites, also known as small intestine roundworms or common roundworms.
Ascaris lumbricoides is one of the most common parasites found in humans. They infect an estimated 25 percent of the world’s population. It is also one of the largest parasites-- Adult females can measure up to 40 centimeters long (males are generally shorter). Adult worms live in the small intestine and eggs are passed in the feces. A single female can produce up to 200,000 eggs each day. About two weeks after passage in the feces, the eggs contain infective larvae and humans are infected when they ingest such eggs (primarily in agricultural products and other contaminated foods).
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
