Turkey IgE Test - More Information

This turkey blood test, also known as a turkey IgE test and a turkey allergy blood test, measures the turkey IgE antibody blood level.

Turkey meat, or turkey, is a type of poultry that is eaten widely. Notorious for its use during the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States, turkey meat typically originates from domesticated turkeys. Turkey meat is usually baked or roasted and is eaten whole in addition to being served sliced and ground. Turkey contains high amounts of protein. A turkey allergy can lead to symptoms such as itchy eyes and runny nose but is typically not the cause of sleepiness after a large turkey dinner.

This turkey IgE test uses the ImmunoCAP® lab methodology. IgE 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 turkey. This turkey allergy test is part of the larger meat allergy test panel which may be a better choice if one is looking for a more comprehensive meat allergy evaluation.

This turkey 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 turkey components are injected into the skin. If you are allergic to turkey, 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 turkey allergy without causing an allergic reaction, resulting in a much more comfortable lab testing experience through a simple blood draw.
