Weed and Grass Allergy Test Panel


+$6.00 Physician Fee

Are you experiencing allergy symptoms and suspect weeds and/or grasses could be the cause? Consider our Weed and Grass Allergy Test Panel to measure allergen-specific immunoglobulin E (IgE), an antibody produced in the blood in response to specific weed and grass allergens.

Our Weed and Grass Allergy Test Panel measures the level of specific IgE antibodies in your blood that activate an immune response to specific weed and grass allergens. This includes antibodies Russian thistle, giant ragweed, nettle, rough marsh elder, sheep sorrel, mugwort, common ragweed, Bermuda grass, rough pigweed, timothy grass, Johnson grass, perennial rye grass, and bahia grass.

Weeds and grasses are common causes of allergy-related symptoms. They produce small, light, and dry allergenic pollen grains that travel by the wind. Your immune system produces antibodies against infections, toxins, bacteria, and viruses as it works to keep your body healthy. These antibodies detect and eliminate harmful foreign substances from your body. However, when you have a weed or grass allergy, your body produces antibodies that incorrectly identify these substances as harmful.

If you are affected by allergies, chances are that you understand the associated symptoms all too well. However, reactions may be dependent on your specific allergy type. Our Weed and Grass Allergy Test Panel may be helpful in identifying if you have had or currently have an allergic reaction to weed and grass.  You may have experienced or experience any of the following signs and symptoms:

  • Sneezing
  • Irritated eyes characterized by swelling, redness, watering, scratchiness, itching, and/or puffiness
  • Congestion
  • Stuffy or runny nose
  • Itchy nose, ears, or mouth
  • Headache
  • Fatigue
  • Chest tightness
  • Wheezing
  • Increased asthma symptoms
