This Blueberry Allergy Test uses a blood sample to determine whether or not you are allergic to blueberries. Those with blueberry allergies are prone to itching, swelling, hives, throat tightness, and in the most extreme of cases, anaphylaxis. In many cases, those with blueberry allergies can be allergic to other fruits as well. For this reason, we suggest covering multiple bases at once (and saving money) with a multi-panel fruit allergy test. To identify a specific blueberry allergy, order the Priority Lab Testing Blueberry Allergy Test today.
After placing an order for the Berry Fruit Allergy Panel, visit any of our 4000+ testing facilities across the country to have your sample collected. You can visit at your convenience as you will not require an appointment.
One of our certified staff members will take a sample of your blood using the skin prick method, upon which your job will be done. You will not feel any pain during the process, and it’ll be over in a few minutes. So, you don’t have to plan the whole day around your blueberry allergy test, as you’ll be in and out within half an hour.
We will then process the sample in a CLIA-certified laboratory. And depending on your potential berry allergies, the results will be available in as little as 24-72 hours.
You can become allergic to blueberries at any point in your life. If this happens, you may notice swelling or itching after eating blueberries.
You are more likely to develop a blueberry allergy if you’re sensitive to salicylates. This is because blueberries contain 27.6 mg of salicylates for every 100g. Salicylates are also found in many spices, fruits, vegetables, and pain-relieving medications.
The severity of a blueberry allergy may range from mild to severe, requiring immediate medical attention.
Blueberry allergy symptoms are similar to any other food allergy. Though they vary between individuals, they include a wide range of respiratory, gastrointestinal, and cardiovascular symptoms.
Here are the most common symptoms of blueberry allergies:
These symptoms are often mild, and you can manage them at home. This is by taking over-the-counter drugs and reducing blueberry consumption in the future.
Depending on your salicylate intolerance, your blueberry allergy may produce stronger reactions. These may arise even after consuming a small portion of blueberries.
Severe reactions occur quickly and require immediate medical attention as they can easily become life-threatening. These symptoms include swelling of soft tissues such as those inside the lips, mouth, and throat.
Once they manifest, you will immediately experience difficulty breathing or shortness of breath. If so, you’ll need immediate medical attention. Other symptoms may include slurred speech, drops in blood pressure, heart palpitations, or loss of consciousness. This may be an indication of anaphylactic shock or anaphylaxis.
At priority Lab Testing we can perform tests to check for blueberry allergy specifically. However, there are situations where you may not be certain blueberries are the cause of your allergic reaction.
So, if you’re not sure whether you’re specifically allergic to blueberries, the Berry Fruit Allergy Panel may be ideal. It will determine whether or not you are allergic to various fruits and involves five tests for blueberry, strawberry, cranberry, raspberry, and avocado allergies.
We understand that you are not a medical professional and your priority is knowing whether you have a blueberry allergy or not. That’s why we straightforwardly deliver the test making it easy to interpret them.
Once you receive your results, you’ll see a ‘reference range’ column and a ‘results flag.’ The reference range indicates the extent of an allergic reaction. On the other hand, the ‘result’ provides a numerical value for your sensitivity to blueberries.
To see the outcome of your results, check the ‘flag’ column. We will mark it as either normal/non-reactive or abnormal/reactive.
In some people, antibodies may only react to blueberries. However, it’s also possible that your antibodies react to other allergens.
A food allergy occurs when the immune system malfunctions and becomes hypersensitive. It then perceives particular food elements as threats and overreacts by releasing chemicals such as histamine in the body. Such reactions are uncomfortable and can also be life-threatening.
At present, there is currently no cure for food allergies. The best course of action is to avoid the food to prevent allergic reactions.
