The Comprehensive Food Allergy Panel determines whether or not you are allergic to various foods. Food allergies occur when your immune system responds negatively to certain foods. Mild reactions might include sneezing or skin irritation, but severe reactions can be much scarier and potentially life-threatening. For this reason, it's important to know which foods to avoid and what to do should you accidentally consume something you're allergic to.

The Comprehensive Food Allergy Panel is comprised of 15 tests for the following foods:

  • Almond
  • Cashew
  • Codfish
  • Cow's Milk
  • Egg White
  • Hazelnut (Filberts)
  • Peanut
  • Salmon
  • Scallops
  • Sesame Seed
  • Shrimp
  • Soybean
  • Tuna
  • Walnut
  • Wheat

How Our Comprehensive Food Allergy Panel Works

For this test, simply place your order online and stop by one of our 4,000+ nationwide testing facilities when it is convenient for you. No appointments are ever necessary. Once inside, a member of the center’s staff will collect a small blood sample. At this point, your contribution is complete. The process itself takes only a few minutes and most patients are in, out and about their day in under a half-hour. Afterward, your blood sample will be processed in a CLIA-certified laboratory. In as little as 24-72 hours, you’ll have full results on these 15 food allergies.

Common Symptoms

Food allergy symptoms can range from mild to serious and even life-threatening depending on the severity of the allergy. Symptoms may include any combination of the following: tingling or itching of the mouth, hives or skin irritation, facial swelling, difficulty breathing, diarrhea, nausea, dizziness, or fainting. In extreme instances, an allergic reaction may cause anaphylaxis and require emergency attention.

How to Interpret Your Results

Delivered via a secure link to your email, your results will provide a complete list of all potential allergens along with your quantifiable result and reference range. The chart will include a column that declares in plain language whether each result is in the normal range or if it is “flagged”. Any flagged items can be interpreted as potential allergens.

Basic vs Comprehensive Food Allergy Panel

Compared to the basic 5-in-1 package, this 15-in-1 Comprehensive Allergy Panel offers a more thorough analysis of common food allergies. In addition to several tests offered in the basic panel, the comprehensive panel tests for almonds, cashews, codfish, hazelnuts, peanuts, salmon, scallops, sesame seeds, shrimp, tuna, and walnuts.
