Bermuda grass IgE Test - More Information
The Bermuda grass allergy test, also known as a Cynodon dactylon allergy test, measures the Bermuda grass IgE antibody blood level.
Bermuda grass goes by many names, including Cynodon dactylon, durva grass, Bahama grass, devil's grass, couch grass, crab grass and wiregrass. Bermuda grass is thought to have migrated to North America from Bermuda. Bermuda grass is widely used on athletic fields due to its toughness and ability to recover from damage. People suffering from a Bermuda grass allergy might notice symptoms such as itchy, watery eyes or sneezing, particularly when playing sports.
This Bermuda grass IgE test uses the ImmunoCAP® lab methodology. Bermuda grass IgE antibody blood test results are reported in kU/L and can be compared against the IgE antibody reference range provided by the lab to determine the IgE allergy class to Bermuda grass.
This Bermuda grass allergy blood test is less painful and has less side effects than historical allergy testing methods such as the skin prick test (SPT). In the skin prick, or scratch, test, serum containing Bermuda grass components are injected into the skin. If you are allergic to Bermuda grass, you will, unfortunately, have a mild allergic reaction and all of the symptoms that go with it. Instead, this allergy blood test can check for a Bermuda grass allergy without causing an allergic reaction, resulting in a much more comfortable lab testing experience through a simple blood draw.
