Egg White IgE Test - More Information
The egg white allergy test, also known as an egg allergy test and an egg allergy blood test, measures the egg white IgE antibody blood level.
This egg white IgE test uses the ImmunoCAP® lab methodology. Egg white 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 egg white.
This egg white 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 egg white is injected into the skin. If you are allergic to egg white, 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 an egg white allergy without causing an allergic reaction, resulting in a much more comfortable lab testing experience through a simple blood draw.
Egg white allergies tend to be more common than egg yolk allergies. To test for egg yolk allergies, check out the egg yolk allergy test. The only safe way to avoid the effects of an egg allergy is to avoid eating eggs completely. This egg allergy test is a component of the food allergy testing panel.
