Measure the levels of specific IgE antibodies in your blood to common food allergens.
If peanut, milk, or egg allergy levels are abnormal, additional respective component panels will be performed on the sample you have already provided to provide specific protein information for you to share with an allergist.
This test reports the presence of IgE(s) antibodies to 15 allergens, but the result by itself cannot confirm the presence of an allergy. It's important to follow up with your healthcare provider or an allergy specialist. They will review your results along with your medical history, signs and symptoms, medications, and any other test results. Only a healthcare provider can diagnose an allergy and prescribe medication, if needed.

According to federal law, major food allergen ingredients must be plainly stated on the labels of packaged foods and dietary supplements in the United States. Also, the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) identifies eight foods or food groups as the major food allergens: milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, and soybeans.
Although avoidance is the best way to prevent a reaction, consumers can find these allergens in unsuspected places, such as soaps, creams, massage oils, and other products. Be sure to read labels and research the products you use carefully.
