Food Allergy Test
A food allergy test is a medical test we do in FMD. It used to determine if an individual has an allergic reaction to specific foods. There are several types of food allergy tests available in ImuPro, including:
- Skin prick test: In this test, a small amount of the suspected food allergen is placed on the skin of the individual, and then a small prick or scratch is made on the skin to allow the allergen to enter. The skin is then monitored for a reaction, such as redness or swelling.
- Blood test: A blood sample is taken from the individual and tested for the presence of immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies, which are produced by the body in response to an allergen.
- Oral food challenge: This test involves consuming small amounts of the suspected food allergen in a controlled setting, such as a doctor's office or hospital, while being closely monitored for any allergic reactions.
- Elimination diet: This involves eliminating suspected food allergens from the diet and monitoring symptoms to determine if they improve. Foods are then reintroduced one at a time to identify which ones are causing the allergic reaction.
We do food allergy tests that are always accurate. ImuPro is qualified healthcare professional to determine the best course of action based on individual symptoms and test results.
