What items are measured in the Allergy Test (IgE)?

Almond
Almond allergy is an allergic reaction to almonds, a type of tree nut. It is one of the more common tree nut allergies and can range from mild to severe, including potentially life-threatening reactions. Like other food allergies, an almond allergy is an immune system response to the proteins found in almonds.
Apple
Apple allergy is an allergic reaction to proteins found in apples. It's commonly associated with Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS), particularly in individuals who are also allergic to birch pollen, as the proteins in apples can cross-react with birch pollen. Reactions can range from mild to severe, although severe reactions are less common with apple allergies.
Ash (pollen)
Ash pollen allergy is a type of seasonal allergic reaction caused by the pollen of ash trees. These trees release pollen into the air, typically in the spring, which can trigger allergic responses in sensitive individuals. This allergy is part of a larger group of allergies known as hay fever or allergic rhinitis.
Bahia grass (pollen)
Bahia grass pollen allergy is a reaction to the pollen produced by Bahia grass, a type of grass commonly found in warmer climates and often used in lawns and pastures. When Bahia grass pollinates, typically in the late spring and summer, its pollen can trigger allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.
Beef
Beef intolerance, a lesser-known condition compared to common food intolerances, occurs when an individual's digestive system reacts adversely to consuming beef. This intolerance differs from a beef allergy, which involves the immune system and can be more severe.
Birch (pollen)
Birch pollen means spring allergies. It floats in the air when birch trees bloom, causing watery eyes, runny noses, and sneezes. Stay ahead by checking pollen levels and keeping windows shut during peak season to dodge those spring sniffles!
Carrot
Carrot allergy is an allergic reaction to certain proteins found in carrots. It is relatively uncommon but can occur in individuals with sensitivities to certain plant-based foods. Carrot allergy is sometimes associated with Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS), especially in those who are allergic to birch or mugwort pollen, due to cross-reactivity of similar proteins.
Cat dander
Cat allergy is a common allergic reaction to proteins found in a cat's skin cells, urine, and saliva. It is one of the most common pet allergies and can cause various symptoms, ranging from mild to severe, in sensitive individuals. These allergens can be carried on clothing and can linger in environments where cats have been.
Chicken
Chicken intolerance is a condition where the body struggles to digest chicken, leading to digestive discomfort. This intolerance is different from a chicken allergy, which involves an immune response and can cause more severe and immediate reactions. People with chicken intolerance often experience gastrointestinal symptoms after eating chicken.
Cockroach
Cockroach allergy occurs when an individual's immune system reacts to proteins in cockroaches' feces, saliva, and body parts. It is a common cause of indoor allergies and can trigger or worsen asthma symptoms, especially in urban areas and in homes with infestations.
Cod
Cod allergy is an immune response to the proteins found in codfish, a common type of fish allergy. It's often seen in individuals who are allergic to other types of fish as well. Allergic reactions can range from mild to severe and can occur upon ingestion or sometimes even from inhaling cooking vapors.
Cow’s milk
Cow's milk can cause different reactions in individuals, leading to conditions like cow's milk intolerance, allergy, and lactose intolerance. Cow's milk intolerance involves difficulty in digesting milk proteins, often causing digestive discomfort. In contrast, a cow's milk allergy triggers an immune response, potentially leading to more severe symptoms. Lactose intolerance, another common condition, is due to the inability to digest lactose, a sugar found in milk. Each condition varies in symptoms and management.
Cypress (pollen)
Cypress pollen allergy is a reaction to the pollen produced by cypress trees, which are common in various landscapes and ornamental gardens. These trees typically release pollen in late winter to early spring, triggering allergic responses in sensitized individuals. This type of allergy is a seasonal allergic rhinitis, often grouped with tree pollen allergies.
Dog dander
Dog allergy is an allergic reaction to proteins found in a dog's skin cells (dander), saliva, and urine. It's a common form of pet allergy and can cause various symptoms in sensitive individuals. These allergens can be carried on clothing and can linger in environments where dogs have been.
Egg white
Egg white allergy is one of the most common food allergies, especially in children. It occurs when the immune system overreacts to proteins found in egg whites. While some children outgrow this allergy, others may carry it into adulthood. Reactions can range from mild to severe, including anaphylaxis.
Hazelnut
Hazelnut allergy is a type of tree nut allergy characterized by an allergic reaction to proteins found in hazelnuts. It is one of the more common nut allergies and can range from mild to severe, including the risk of anaphylaxis. Like other food allergies, hazelnut allergy is an immune response and can be triggered by both raw and cooked hazelnuts.
Hazelnut (pollen)
Hazelnut pollen allergy is an allergic reaction to the pollen grains from hazelnut trees. While less common than allergies to grasses or other tree pollens, it can cause symptoms in sensitized individuals, especially during the tree's pollinating season, which typically occurs in early spring.
Horse
Horse allergy is an allergic reaction to proteins found in a horse's skin cells (dander), saliva, and urine. It is less common than cat or dog allergies but can cause similar symptoms in sensitized individuals. People who work with horses or frequently visit stables are more likely to develop this allergy.
King crab
King crab, a delicacy in seafood cuisine, is prized for its taste and texture. However, some individuals may experience king crab intolerance, which can affect their enjoyment of this seafood.
Lamb
Lamb intolerance is a condition where individuals experience difficulty digesting lamb meat, leading to gastrointestinal discomfort. This intolerance is distinct from a lamb allergy, which involves an immune system response and can cause more severe reactions. People with lamb intolerance typically experience digestive symptoms after consuming lamb.
Mite
Mite allergy refers to allergic reactions to tiny insects known as dust mites, which are common in household dust. These microscopic creatures thrive in warm, humid environments and feed on dead skin cells. The primary allergens are proteins in the mites' feces and body fragments. Mite allergy is a significant cause of indoor allergies and can trigger symptoms similar to hay fever and asthma.
Cladosporium herbarum (Mold)
Mold allergy, particularly to Cladosporium herbarum, is a common allergic reaction to the spores of this widespread mold. Cladosporium herbarum can be found both indoors and outdoors, often in damp areas. People sensitive to mold spores may experience allergic symptoms when exposed to this mold.

GetTested's Allergy & Food Intolerance Test

GetTested's Allergy & Food Intolerance Test is an extensive tool for identifying potential allergies and food intolerances. This dual test covers 78 substances, including various foods, pollen, mold, pets, and mites. Therefore, it provides a comprehensive view of your allergy and tolerance levels.

IgE vs. IgG: Distinguishing Allergy from Food Intolerance

Importantly, the test differentiates between IgE antibodies (indicating allergies) and IgG4 antibodies (signifying food intolerances). Allergies involve immune system reactions, whereas food intolerances affect the gastrointestinal system. Thus, one can have an allergy to a food without being intolerant to it, or vice versa.

Allergic reactions typically appear quickly, with symptoms ranging from mild, like a runny nose, to severe and potentially life-threatening. On the other hand, food intolerances often show delayed symptoms, including fatigue, mood swings, brain fog, headaches, and gastrointestinal problems.

Histamine Intolerance and Allergy Symptoms

If symptoms like headaches or skin rashes seem familiar, consider histamine intolerance. This condition, often confused with allergic reactions, results from the body's inability to break down histamine effectively.

Allergy vs. Gluten Intolerance

It's also vital to distinguish between allergies, immediate immune responses, and gluten intolerance (celiac disease), which affects the digestive system over time. While both can share symptoms, their causes and treatments differ.

While GetTested's Allergy & Food Intolerance Test identifies allergies and intolerances to wheat, celiac disease is a separate condition that necessitates a different test. You can conveniently check for celiac disease with our specialized rapid test.

Understanding the ELISA Method

Furthermore, the food intolerance aspect of the test employs the ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) method. This technique detects and quantifies substances such as peptides, proteins, antibodies, and hormones. Specifically, it involves immobilizing the antigen on a solid surface (microplate) and then linking it to an antibody connected to a reporter enzyme. Finally, we detect the interaction by measuring the enzyme's activity, ensuring precise results through specific antibody-antigen interactions.
