About Our Basic Food Allergy Test Panel
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
All food is capable of causing an allergy, but in the Unites States many of all food allergies are caused by one of the 15 food allergens below. In fact, approximately 90% of all food allergy reactions are caused by milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat and soy.
This IgE allergy test panel uses a blood sample to determine if you are allergic to any of the following common food allergies:
- Cow's Milk
- Egg Whites
- Sesame seeds
- Hazelnuts (Filberts)
In food allergies cases, the body sees proteins or chemicals in the food as a toxin. The immune system reacts by releasing histamines and antibodies to fight the toxin, causing allergy symptoms. Most allergic reactions to food affect the mouth, skin, or gastrointestinal tract. Symptoms often appear immediately upon ingestion, but can sometimes take anywhere from minute to days to manifest. Food allergies can be very severe and sometimes even fatal. Our quick blood test looks for IgE antibodies that respond as a result to being exposed to these food allergens.
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
