What to Expect From An Allergy Test

 

 

Preparing for an Allergy Test

Before your consultation, it will be helpful to make a list of your symptoms and family history of allergies, if any. You can also include suspected allergens in your list based on your experience or observation.

 

What Happens During an Allergy Test

A small test tube of blood will be collected. The procedure will take less than 5 minutes. The results will be available in a couple of days.

Allergy Report

A positive result indicates that IgE antibodies were produced by your body in response to the allergen. Conversely, a negative result means that the foreign substance does not trigger a reaction from your immune system.

 

 

Immunotherapy (Desensitization)

 

 

  • If allergies persist despite avoiding the allergens and medications, immunotherapy may be an alternative treatment option.
  • Indicated for patients who have clinically shown to have relevant allergens.
  • Aim is to increase the tolerability of the patient’s immune system to the allergen(s).
  • Over time, the body will be less ‘sensitive’ to the allergen(s) and this will reduce severity of symptoms and reduces the usage of antihistamines and nasal sprays. For example, if you are allergic to dust mites, immunotherapy can prevent you from reacting to dust mites after an appropriate length of treatment.
  • It is safe under professional management.
  • Convenient, able to administer at home over a period of a couple of years.
  • It is easily administered via a tablet a day.
