Do you have allergy symptoms suspect something indoors could be the cause? Our Indoor Allergy Test Panel measures your immune system response to specific indoor allergens.
This panel measures immune response to cockroach, cat dander, dog dander, American house dust mite, European house dust mite, Tropical and sub-tropical (Blomia tropicalis) house dust mite, fungus, penicillin fungus, aspergillus fungus, Cladosporium mold, goose feathers, and house dust, and can help identify if you have an allergic reaction to these common indoor allergens.
Millions of people live year-round with uncomfortable symptoms caused by indoor allergens such as dust mite droppings, mold, and animal dander. Allergens from pets can accumulate on furniture and other surfaces and retain their potency for long periods. Although pet hair is not an allergen, it can collect dander (skin flakes), urine, saliva, dust, and pollen, all of which may cause an allergic reaction. Additionally, dust within a home or another indoor environment may contain dust mite and cockroach particles, animal dander, mold spores, and other allergens
Our Indoor Allergy Test Panel measures the levels of specific IgE antibodies in your blood. When you are exposed to an allergen, your immune system activates the release of too much of the antibody IgE. IgE activation acuases the release of a substance called histamine, which causes an allergic reaction. IgE antibodies are normally found in small amounts in the blood, but higher amounts can be a sign that the body overreacts to allergens. Having IgE antibodies, along with alergic symptoms, may indicate an allergy.
If you are affected by allergies, chances are that you understand the symptoms all too well. However, reactions may be dependent on your specific allergy type. Our Indoor Allergen Test Panel may be helpful in identifying if you have had or currently have an allergic reaction to specific indoor allergens. You may have experienced or experience any of the following signs and symptoms:
This test reports the presence of lgE(s) antibodies to indoor 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.
