This Strawberry Allergy Test uses a blood sample to determine whether or not you are allergic to strawberries. Those with strawberry allergies are prone to itching, swelling, hives, throat tightness, and in the most extreme of cases, anaphylaxis. In many cases, those with strawberry allergies can be allergic to other fruits as well. For this reason, we suggest covering multiple bases at once (and saving money) with a Berry Fruit Allergy Panel. To identify a specific strawberry allergy, order the Priority Lab Testing Strawberry Allergy Test today.
This allergy test uses a blood sample to determine whether or not you are allergic to strawberries. Those with strawberry allergies are prone to itching, swelling, hives, throat tightness, and anaphylaxis in the most extreme of cases. However, in many cases, those with strawberry allergies can also be allergic to other fruits. For this reason, we suggest covering multiple bases at once (and saving money) with a multi-panel fruit allergy test. This test and panels are conducted via a blood draw and results are available in just 24 to 72 hours. Fasting is not required.
Science Daily reports that food allergies affect 3 to 4% of adults and 5% of children. More specifically, strawberries can cause allergic reactions due to various allergenic proteins.1
The most common strawberry allergy symptoms, according to Medical News Today, include:
We strive to make interpreting your allergy test results as straightforward as possible. Our Strawberry Allergy Test is an Immunoglobulin-E (IgE) blood test that measures your body’s sensitivity to foreign substances by testing for IgE antibodies.
You’ll find a ‘results’, ‘flag’ and ‘reference range’ column when reviewing your results. The ‘reference range’ denotes the threshold for an allergic reaction. The ‘result’ is the numerical value describing your sensitivity to the allergen. The outcome of your strawberry test can be found under the ‘flag’ column and reported as either normal/non-reactive or abnormal/reactive. A reactive or abnormal test flag will indicate an allergic reaction to strawberries.
While some people may have antibodies that only react to strawberries, it is possible to have antibodies that react to multiple allergens.
