About Our Firebush (Kochia) Allergy Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This IgE allergy test uses a blood sample to determine if you are allergic to the pollen of the Firebush (Kochia) weed.
Kochia is a major source of pollen and can be found in the northern half of the United States (although it is spreading south). Kochia may be called "Burning Bush" for its reddish-purple color. This plant is highly adaptable and resilient. It is very drought-tolerant and is commonly found on saline soils, deserts and along coasts. It is found on pasture, roadsides, ditches, wastelands and cultivated fields. Kochia is often cultivated as a bedding plant or as an ornamental hedge.
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
