Food Allergy Tests
E-Zlab is specialized in blood work & medical tests at home & work.
E-Zlab Health Services offers a multitude of food allergy tests.
In case of allergy, the immune system of an affected person reacts to an unknown substance termed ‘allergen’, by developing antibodies called specific IgE-type immuno globulins. This is a self-defense reaction by the immune system.
The manifestations of an allergic reaction can vary in intensity : from light to serious, like an anaphylactic shock. They appear shortly after the ingestion of a food item or the contact with an unknown agent. The symptoms can consist of throat shrinking, skin breakouts, breathing difficulties and lip swelling.
The anaphylactic shock is a very serious reaction, during which the respiratory pathways get obstructed and hinder the affected person’s breathing. There can also come up heartbeat increase and arterial pressure drop.
An allergy can have eating, breathing or environmental origins. The allergic persons thus develop specific IgE antibodies in their body, which can be traced by a blood test.
According to several studies, a serious allergic reaction originated in food is rarer.
E-Zlab Health Services
E-Zlab Health Services offers the possibility of tracing your allergens by a mere blood test. According to a medical prescription we can suggest to you various profiles of food intolerances or multiple allergy profiles offered by our medical laboratory.
We offer several tests for allergies or intolerances that may have been caused by food, environment or the contact with respiratory allergens (such as pollen or dust).
Allergen tracing can be done altogether or individually, one allergen at a time.
You need to have a medical prescription in order to undergo blood sampling for food intolerance tests or allergy tests.
Please refer to the concise list, which can be of help for targeting the allergens that cause you discomfort.
