About Our Citrus Fruit Allergen Panel
This IgE allergy test uses a blood sample to determine if you are allergic to five common Citrus fruits:
Did you know: An allergy to citrus can be an indicator of Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid) deficiency. Check out our Vitamin B5 Deficiency Test to find out if you also have this common co-existing condition.
Fruit allergies make up about 10% of all food-related allergies. Citrus allergies are most common in older children and young adults, but can develop at any age. In the case of citrus allergies, the body sees the protein profilin as a toxin, rather than a food. The immune system reacts by releasing histamines and antibodies to fight the toxin, causing symptoms such as swelling, rashes, throat swelling, gastrointestinal issues and more. Most allergic reactions to fruit affect the mouth, but can also affect any skin that comes in contact with the allergen. Fruit allergies can be very severe and sometimes even fatal.
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.
