About Our Scale (Lenscale) Allergy Test
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
This IgE blood allergy test will determine if you are allergic to Scale or Lenscale (saltbush) pollen.
Lenscale is a fast-growing, compact, woody perennial shrub that is native to the temperate and tropical regions of North America, but a few species are grown for decorative plants for homes throughout the world for their greyish foliage.
It can grow along seashores and in other saline soils, especially in arid regions, and has been used for windbreaks, borders, and range management. It is normally evergreen, meaning it will not lose its green leaves, but sometimes Lenscale can dry out and shed its leaves in some desert environments.
The main ingredient people are allergic to in Lenscale is called Atriplex Lentformis Pollen. It is wind-pollinated and greatly contributes to the pollen loads of arid regions.
Some symptoms of allergy to Lenscale are:
- Allergic rhinitis
- Allergic conjunctivitis
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
