The Tree Nut Allergy Test Panel measures the levels of specific IgE antibodies in your blood to specific peanut and tree nut allergens. This panel measures responses to almond, Brazil nut, cashew nut, hazelnut, macadamia nut, peanut, pecan nut, pistachio, and walnut.
This test reports the presence of lgE(s) antibodies to peanut and tree nut allergens, but the result by itself cannot confirm the presence of the 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, peanut and tree nut ingredients must be plainly stated on packaged foods and dietary supplements in the United States. Also, the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) requires labeling tree nuts based on their type (such as almonds, pecans, walnuts). It’s important to read food labels to ensure that you are not ingesting any nut allergens if you have a nut allergy.
Although avoiding peanut and tree nut allergens is best to prevent a reaction, you can still find these allergens in unexpected places, such as soaps, creams, massage oils, and other products. Be sure to research the products you use carefully.
