Unlike an IgG food sensitivity test, an IgE food allergy blood test checks serious allergic reactions. These reactions can happen within minutes of ingesting allergy causing foods and can cause serious health issues.
Food allergies can be sudden, uncontrollable response to allergens in certain foods (e.g., peanuts) that can cause swelling, red skin, difficulty breathing, and can be fatal, if not treated immediately. Once you find out that your body is producing immunoglobulin E (IgE) protein antibodies in response to certain foods, you can start avoiding them. The allergies are measured on a scale of 0 to 6 (zero means no reaction and 6 means very high risk of reaction).
Common symptoms of food allergy include swelling, red skin, difficult breathing, anaphylaxis, and other life threatening reactions. Common examples include peanut or shellfish allergies.
Testing for food allergies can help improve quality of life by eliminating the offending foods. A simple finger prick can help you save lot of trouble.
The test will measure following food items:
Dairy: Alpha & Beta Lactalbumin, Casein, Cheddar Cheese, Cow's Milk, Goat's Cheese, and Goat's Milk.

A: The IgE Food Allergy Test is a lab developed test (LDT), originally developed by EUROIMMUN (a subsidiary of Perkin Elmer). Its performance characteristics were determined by USBioTek Lab in Seattle. This test has not been cleared or approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The results of the IgE test should be used in conjunction with other relevant clinical information by a healthcare provider to diagnose IgE-mediated allergic disorders.
For testing your samples, we have partnered with CLIA-certified labs that are used by physicians across the US. These labs are regulated by the states, as well as Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Additionally, the College of American Pathologists (CAP) requires inter-laboratory tests to ensure the ranges established by each lab do not drift or are not out of acceptable ranges. This is done by regularly testing reference samples between different labs. Finally, the labs test thousands of sample for different age groups and health conditions, and have well established reference data to compare your results against this large pool.
