Cereal Allergy Blood Test - More Information
The cereal allergy test panel, also known as a cereal IgE test and a cereal allergy blood test, measures the IgE antibody blood levels for five different types of cereals. This cereal allergy lab test panel includes the barley allergy test, buckwheat allergy test, gluten allergy test, rice allergy test and rye allergy test.
This cereal allergy test panel uses the ImmunoCAP® lab methodology. Cereal 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 the specific cereal.
This cereal 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 cereal components are injected into the skin. If you are allergic to the specific cereal, 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 cereal allergy without causing an allergic reaction, resulting in a much more comfortable lab testing experience through a simple blood draw.
