About Our Stinging Insect Allergen Test Panel
Note: Fasting is not required for this test.
The hymenoptera IgE allergy panel tests the blood for five common stinging insect allergens:
- Paper Wasp
- White-Faced Hornet
- Yellow Hornet
- Yellow Jacket
Severe allergic reactions to insect stings often result in some or all of the the following symptoms:
- Swelling of the face, throat, or mouth
- Difficulty swollowing and/or wheezing
- Hives (a red, itchy rash that can spread beyond the sting site)
- Rapid pulse
- Trouble breathing
- Dizziness, restlessness or anxiety
- Sharp drop in blood pressure
Mild allergic reactions to insect stings can result in any of the following symptoms that occur at the sting site:
- Redness and/or warmth where the sting occurred
- Mild/moderate swelling
Approximately 2 million Americans are allergic to stinging insect's venom. Severe allergic reactions to insect stings can be life-threatening as they can lead to cardiac arrest, shock and unconsciousness in mere minutes. An allergic reaction to stinging insects is often treated with epinephrine (adrenaline) like an Epi-Pen, via either self-injection or given by a doctor. Typically, this injection will stop the development of a severe allergic reaction, but sometimes medical treatment is needed.
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
