About Our Flaxseed (Linseed) 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 Flaxseed (Linseed).
Egyptians, Hebrews, Greeks, Romans and New World civilizations used the seeds as food and the fibers (known as flax) for textiles. The seeds contain 30-40% oil that is comprised mainly linoleic and linolenic acids and is mainly used in the preparation of varnish, paint, linoleum and soap.
Individuals may be unexpectedly exposed to flax or flaxseed in cereals, granola, milk from cows that are fed flax, laxatives, shampoo, hair tonic, infusions, depilatories, cattle feed, dog food, patent leather, insulating materials, carpets, cloth, cough remedies, breads, muffins, and other “health food” products.
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
