About Our American Cockroach Allergy Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This IgE blood allergy test will determine if you are allergic to American Cockroaches.
Cockroaches are probably the oldest insect in the world and have been found in fossil records; more than 3,500 cockroach species exist worldwide. American cockroaches are large, up to 5 centimeters in length. They infests houses, schools, hospitals and other large buildings. They prefer damp areas such as basements, and may be found around pipes, sewage systems, and drainage systems. They are reddish-brown or mahogany with a tan or light yellow band around the shield behind the head. Both sexes have wings, but don't often fly, when they do, it is in a gliding fashion.
Cockroach may commonly induce symptoms of asthma, allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis and allergic dermatitis in sensitized individuals. These are the most common ailments attributable to cockroach infestation of housing and are important public health problems.
Cockroaches eat almost everything, from glue in furniture to drainpipe waste to other insects. Breeding takes place in kitchens, bathrooms, and walls. Cockroaches produce potent allergens that are an important cause of asthma. At least 45 allergens have been detected from American cockroach that contribute to asthma.
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
