Indoor & Outdoor Allergy
Knowledge is PowerMany people experience seasonal allergies and some experience year-round allergies. Your body treats these allergens as a threat, and therefore as part of your body's defense mechanism, your body produces IgE antibodies to get rid of these allergens. Check out most of the symptoms associated with indoor or outdoor allergies under who should take this test!
This test looks at the IgE antibodies produced by your body when you are allergic to a specific indoor or outdoor allergen. Measuring IgE levels can indicate that your body treats a particular substance as an allergen. High levels of IgE could indicate that a substance introduced into your body is a true allergy. However, IgE tests are only a great diagnostic tool to identify potential allergies in the presence of other information such as your family history, age, a clinical evaluation, and knowing if you have other conditions such as atopic dermatitis. These factors should be taken into consideration when diagnosing a true allergy, and our healthcare professional can help you seek the answers you are looking for.
