About Our Cow's Milk 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 Cow's Milk.
Being allergic to cow's milk is different than being intolerant to cow's milk.
Allergies are caused when the body views the ingested substance as a harmful invader. The immune system then overreacts, causing a release of histamines throughout the blood. This triggers an allergic reaction that can create a myriad of symptoms ranging from mild to severe.
Symptoms of a cow's milk allergy include:
- Itchy skin rash
- Swelling of the lips, tongue, and/or face
- Shortness of breath
- Runny Nose
A lactose intolerance, on the other hand, does not have to do with the immune system. People are lactose intolerant when they are missing the enzyme "lactase." Lactase allows the body to break down lactose, the sugar found in milk and dairy products. Because of this missing enzyme, those with a lactose intolerance are unable to process foods containing milk.
Symptoms of lactose intolerance include:
