Accurate diagnosis of food allergy is important not only for avoidance of foods that may cause a reaction, but also to avoid unnecessary dietary restrictions that may adversely affect the quality of life.
This panel includes a number of tests to help determine if a person is allergic to common food items. Allergy tests in this panel include:
- Milk (Cow)
- Egg White
- Sesame Seeds
The Food Allergy Profile provides a rapid and convenient measurement of food-specific IgE antibodies. The profile includes allergens associated with common food allergies and is useful in confirming or excluding suspected food allergies. Results can help direct subsequent testing and management options, including trial elimination diet, oral food challenge, and further evaluation of non-IgE-related reactions.
