About Our Lobster Allergy Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This IgE antibody allergy test uses a blood sample to determine if you are allergic to Lobster, a common shellfish.
Shellfish is one of the eight most common allergies in the United States. There are two types of shellfish: crustaceans and mollusks.
Crustaceans are animals that have typically have two distinct body sections, a hard exterior shell, jointed legs, no backbone, and two pairs of antennae. Crustaceans include shrimp, crawfish, lobsters, prawns, and crabs. Mollusks are characterized as having a hinged, two-part shell, and soft, unsegmented body within. Mollusks include clams, scallops, oysters, and mussels as well as octopus, squid, and snails.
Symptoms of a Lobster allergy
Lobster allergies can include the following:
- Swelling of the face/joints
- Facial tingling
- Trouble breathing
- Closing of the throat
People may be allergic to crustaceans, mollusks, or both. Therefore, if you're worried that you have a lobster allergy, we suggest taking a more comprehensive shellfish allergy test, or at least adding a mollusk test to this one.
