This Lime Allergy Test uses a blood sample to determine whether or not you are allergic to limes. Those with lime allergies are prone to rashes, watery eyes, wheezing, and in extreme cases, anaphylaxis. In many cases, those with lime allergies can be allergic to other citrus fruits as well. For this reason, we suggest covering multiple bases at once (and saving money) with our Citrus Fruit Allergy Panel. To identify a specific lime allergy, order the Priority Lab Testing Lime Allergy Test today.
If you’re concerned about having a lime allergy, Priority Lab Testing can help. We offer lime allergy tests to help you determine whether you’re allergic to lime and to what extent.
All you need to do is place an order for the lime allergy panel. You’ll then need to present yourself for sample collection at any of our 4,000+ labs. And don’t worry about disrupting your day. You can visit the lab at any time, and the entire process will take less than 30 minutes.
After one of our certified personnel collects your blood sample, we will test it in a CLIA-certified lab. You’ll only wait as little as 24-72 hours for your results.
Like other fruit allergies, lime allergies are most often caused by a protein found in the fruit itself. When this protein enters your system, your immune system overreacts and produces histamine and other chemicals to protect you.
These chemicals cause the symptoms associated with an allergic reaction.
Lime allergies are not as common as other fruit allergies, but they can seriously threaten those who are allergic. The most common symptoms of a lime allergy include:
If you experience these symptoms after coming into contact with lime, it’s important to seek medical attention immediately.
While lime allergies are not as common as other citrus allergies, they can still be just as severe. So if you’re concerned about having a lime allergy, it’s important to get tested.
The best way to determine whether you have a lime allergy is to take an allergy test. At Priority Lab Testing, we offer both citrus fruit and lime allergy tests.
The citrus fruit allergy test will test for antibodies to all citrus fruits, including lime. On the other hand, the lime allergy test will specifically test for antibodies to lime.
If you’re only concerned about having a lime allergy, we recommend taking the lime allergy test. However, if you’re concerned about having an allergy to any citrus fruit, we recommend taking the citrus fruit allergy test.
At Priority Lab Testing, your convenience is among our top priorities. Therefore, you won’t need to collect your tests in person as we’ll email you a secure link that you can use to access it.
Furthermore, the results are displayed in a simple fashion and in plain language to make them easy to understand. To begin with, the results are displayed as either normal or abnormal, meaning non-reactive and reactive, respectively.
You’ll also notice a chart that indicates different levels of lime allergy and a flag that indicates your particular level.
If you have any questions about your results, we recommend that you are welcome to reach out to us. One of our certified professionals will help you understand the results and advice accordingly.
