    Allergy Blood Test

    What is an allergy blood test?

    An allergy blood test is performed by a skilled laboratory professional to find out if you have allergic reactions to any substance. It could be in the form of itching, rashes, sneezing, and in worse cases, choking and breathlessness due to lung blockage. An allergy profile test may help you understand what triggers your allergy symptoms. A full allergy test measures your complete blood count (CBC), and screens for allergy triggers using an IgE blood test. Thus, an allergy blood test is recommended by general doctors  for an accurate diagnosis of your allergic reactions.

    Why should you do an allergy blood test?

    Our immune systems naturally work to fight against antigens like bacteria and viruses. In some cases, the immune system may treat harmless substances like dust, or certain food groups as a threat to the body. A general physician  may recommend an allergy profile test if they notice the following symptoms:

  • Constant sneezing
  • Itching
  • Skin rashes
  • Watery eyes
  • Diarrhea
  • Shortness of breath
  • Excessive coughing or wheezing
  • Hives
  • You should consult a general physician about any allergy symptoms you may present to start immediate allergy treatment if needed. A comprehensive allergy profile test will allow you to know if you are allergic to any substance and avoid it. It is important to know what you are allergic to as some severe allergies can be very damaging to the body. A choked reaction, for instance, may cause the airways to be blocked, which is prone to cause lung damage. Your general physician may request you to get a comprehensive health check-up or prescribe appropriate medicines.

    What tests are included in the allergy blood test package?

    The allergy blood test package provided by MedKare includes the following tests:

  • Blood count tests: Your blood composition can help us understand if your body is fighting against any infections/diseases. The values of allergy blood tests can be directly associated with your symptoms. We provide 23 blood count tests to assess all components of your blood and whether they are in balance.
  • Inflammation test: When the body fights against allergens, a chemical called histamine is released into the bloodstream. High levels of histamine cause swelling (inflammation), itching, enlarged blood vessels, and bronchospasm. An inflammation allergy blood test is performed by measuring the ESR levels to determine the amount of protein in the blood. Elevated protein levels may be indicators of inflammation in some parts of the body.
  • Allergy profile: Allergy profile includes two tests, EOS blood test, and IgE blood test.
    1. -Eosinophil count test/ EOS blood test: Eosinophils are a type of white blood cells in your body. A high number of eosinophils can indicate an allergic reaction that needs to be treated.
    2. -IgE blood test: (Immunoglobulin E) IgE is a type of protein that is associated with the body’s allergic reactions. IgE antibodies develop when the allergen enters the body. An IgE allergy test measures these allergen-specific IgE proteins in the bloodstream.

    What happens during an allergy blood test?

    general doctor may recommend an allergy blood test to understand if you have allergic reactions to any substance. An allergy profile test is similar to any other blood test, where your blood sample is collected through a needle inserted into the vein of your arm. You will feel a sting but it will go away once the process is done. An at-home allergy test only takes 5 minutes to complete. You can either perform a complete allergy test while visiting a general doctor or book a home allergy test using the MedKare. To book an appointment, all you need to do is choose the test, select a time slot, and enter your details.
