About Our Soybean 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 Soybeans (soy or soya).
Soy can be found in many food products, not just Asian cuisine and soy-derived foods like soy milk and soy sauce. Soy can be found in miso, tofu, vegetable broths and starches, energy bars and protein snacks, cereals, crackers, and processed meats and soups.
A soybean allergy is considered one of the most common allergies, on par with peanuts. If you are allergic to peanuts, it is more likely that you are also allergic to soybeans or soy. Soy allergies are most common in babies and small children. A baby can develop a soy allergy from soy-based infant formula. Most children will outgrow a soybean allergy, however, some may carry it into adulthood.
Symptoms of a soybean allergy will usually develop very soon after coming into contact with soy (usually within minutes or up to a few hours). Symptoms may include the following:
More severe allergy symptoms to a soybean allergy may be a result of anaphylaxis. If you experience any of the following anaphylaxis symptoms, then it should be considered a medical emergency:
- Trouble breathing
- Swelling of the throat
- Shock or dip in blood pressure
- Quickened pulse
- Loss of Conscience
Soy allergies can often be inconvenient and unpredictable. Soy is often a hidden ingredient in everyday food items. Having a soy allergy will mean double checking the ingredients on everything before consuming.
