Mushroom IgE Test - More Information
The mushroom allergy test measures the mushroom IgE antibody blood level.
This mushroom IgE test uses the ImmunoCAP® lab methodology. Mushroom 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 mushrooms.
This mushroom 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 mushroom components are injected into the skin. If you are allergic to mushroom, 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 mushroom allergy without causing an allergic reaction, resulting in a much more comfortable lab testing experience through a simple blood draw.
