"Discover which foods your body has negative reactions to when you eat "An acute allergy is fast reacting and often occurs within two hours of eating the suspect food. Symptoms can include swelling of lips or tongue, constricted breathing, sinus congestion, skin outbreaks such as hives and abdominal pains.This Acute Allergy Screen measures your reaction to 19 different foods including hazel nut, peanut, walnut, almond, milk, egg white, egg yolk, casein (cheese), potato, celery, carrot, tomato, cod fish, shrimp, peach, apple, soya, wheat, sesame seed and rye flour.
More than 20% of the population is thought to suffer from allergic symptoms, and evidence shows that the overall incidence is increasing. It is often genetic and, if both parents are allergic, the child is between 40-75% more likely to be allergic as well. This type of allergy is often termed a classic allergy and can be detected by the measurement of certain antibodies in the blood.
Once you know the foods you are reacting to, these can then be avoided in the future. By analysing these foods from a blood test the procedure avoids the risk of adverse allergic reactions which can happen when challenge testing is used.
When ordering this test you will receive a special kit, with full instructions, that will enable your practice nurse or doctor to take a small quantity of blood. This is sent directly to the laboratory and when analysed you will be sent the results showing which foods to avoid.
So if you want to find out what foods you are allergic to, then you should order this Acute Allergy Screen now.
