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