About Our Honey Bee Allergy Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This blood allergy test will determine if you are allergic to the venom/bee sting of Honey Bees.There are many types of bees. Honey bees have been domesticated and spread throughout the world. The honey bee is the only stinging Hymenoptera that almost always leaves its stinger in the skin of its victim. The bee's venom continues to pump into the victim until the venom sac is exhausted or the stinger has been removed.
The risk having a bee sting allergy increases with the degree of exposure, as such beekeepers are at a high risk of developing a bee sting allergy.
An allergy to honey bee venom often means an individual is also allergic to bumblebee venom. It is important to be tested for both, since the two bees' venoms have a high degree of cross-reactivity.
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.
