About Our Brazil Nut Allergy Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This IgE antibody allergy test uses a blood sample to determine if you are allergic to Brazil nuts.
The Brazil nut allergy is thought to be much more common in adults, largely due to the fact that children don’t normally eat Brazil nuts. When a Brazil nut allergy is present, it is usually severe and life-threatening, with a high risk of anaphylaxis. Anaphylaxis will often include difficulty breathing, swelling of the throat, choking, dizziness, or loss of consciousness.
If you are allergic to walnuts or almonds are more likely to be allergic to Brazil nuts and vise versa. It is important to test for multiple nut allergies to determine what foods to avoid, especially due to the fact that many different foods come in contact with nuts during production.
Brazil nuts may be a encountered unexpectedly in cookies and other pastries. Brazil nut oil, which is extracted from the nuts, is commonly used in Peru and other South American countries to manufacture soap and is also used for lighting. Worldwide, Brazil nut oil is used in soaps, shampoos, hair conditioning and hair repairing products, and skin moisturizers.
