Lamb IgE Test - More Information
The lamb allergy test measures the lamb IgE antibody blood level.
Lamb, also known as mutton, is a popular meat originating from a sheep in its first year of life that is consumed all around the world. Allergy to lamb can cause symptoms such as itchy eyes, a runny nose, or stomach cramping.
This lamb IgE test uses the ImmunoCAP® lab methodology. Lamb 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 lamb. The meat allergy test panel is recommended for people who want to test for lamb and other meat allergies.
This lamb 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 lamb meat components are injected into the skin. If you are allergic to lamb, 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 the lamb allergy without causing an allergic reaction, resulting in a much more comfortable lab testing experience through a simple blood draw.
