Allergies are one of the most widely searched medical conditions online, and allergy testing is a very popular request at Duality Health.
An allergy is a hypersensitive reaction from the body’s immune system when a person comes into contact with a typically harmful substance. People can be allergic to substances we breathe, eat or drink, or that touches our skin.
When this happens, the allergen triggers an abnormal response in our bodies, causing upsetting, uncomfortable and sometimes frightening changes. Patients can experience everything from a runny nose or rash, to swelling of the lips, breathlessness and collapse.
But not all allergic reactions produce such severe symptoms. Often, an allergen might just leave you with an itchy rash. And every time you come into contact with that allergen, your reaction will be the same.
Duality Health offers tests for a wide range of allergens. We can check for specific substances, but it is usually better to test for a group of potential allergens. That way, patients are more likely to find the cause of their symptoms.
Below, you will find a list of the allergy profiles we offer. Click “Book Now” on your chosen profile to schedule your allergy testing today.
The most accurate and effective method of diagnosing allergies is for a medical professional to:
A blood (serum) IgE test measures the antibodies your body produces. If you have more IgE antibodies than normal, it is likely the reason why you are having allergic reactions to a substance. However, positive results will not always correlate to an allergic reaction.
While our wide range of specific IgE test panels can be incredibly effective, a strong clinical history is needed for a significant result. That is why Duality Health also offers total IgE testing – that is, testing for all different types of IgE antibodies. That means we can give you the best possible chance of identifying your allergen and helping you manage your allergic reactions.
