About Our Pecan Nut 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 pecan nuts.

If your test results are positive, it is likely that you may be allergic to several other nuts as well. Since pecans are tree nuts, an allergy to other types of tree nuts is possible. These can include but are not limited to: almonds, pistachios, walnuts, pine nuts, and hazelnuts.

Tree nut allergies are one of the most common food allergies and reactions can range from mild (minor itching, watery eyes, and a scratchy throat) to life-threatening (anaphylaxis).

Symptoms of allergic reaction to pecans may include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Trouble swallowing
  • Wheezing
  • Nausea and/or vomiting
  • Abdominal pain, including cramping and upset stomach
  • Nasal congestion or runny nose
  • Itching of the mouth, throat, skin, eyes, hands, or other body regions

While anaphylaxis isn’t common, it is an indication of a severe allergic response. That said, peanuts, shellfish, and tree nut allergies have the most anaphylactic reactions. The reaction can start up within 5 to 30 minutes of exposure. Those with these severe reactions, should carry epinephrine auto-injectors with them to relieve the potentially life-threatening symptoms.

Symptoms of a severe anaphylaxis reaction to pecans may include:

  • Swollen throat
  • Wheezing
  • Passing out
  • Trouble swallowing
  • Vomiting
  • Hives or red rash
