This is a blood test. The Hampstead Health Practice food allergy test will test for allergies against the 20 most common allergies.
A food panel for detecting antibodies against crab, codfish, carrot, apple, potato, tomato, celery, peach, walnut, peanut, hazelnut, almond, soyabean, rye, wheat, sesame, casein, egg white and egg yolk.
Adverse reactions to food and to inhaled substances can arise by a variety of mechanisms and these may be immune- or non-immune mediated. The usefulness of measuring IgE antibodies in Type 1 hypersensitivity reactions is now well established as a means to identify the allergens responsible for this immune-mediated reaction , which can be triggered by very small amounts of antigen. Testing for IgE antibodies may be useful to establish the diagnosis of an allergic disease and to define the allergens responsible for eliciting the signs and symptoms observed. Testing also may be useful to identify the allergens responsible for an anaphylactic episode, or to confirm sensitization to particular allergens prior to beginning immunotherapy.The Food Safe Test
