GetTested’s Allergy Test Small measures 38 different items, covering 95% of the most common allergies in the UK. An allergic reaction does not always trigger severe symptoms; it can also cause milder or more diffuse symptoms, such as a runny nose or a rash. This home test is analysed at a professional, ISO-certified lab. You perform the test at home using a simple blood finger test.

Please note that histamine intolerance can cause symptoms similar to an allergic reaction. For those who want to test their food intolerances as well, consider our extended test, which assesses a total of 78 food and non-food items.

Food Allergens tested

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.
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.
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.
Crayfish
Crayfish allergy is an allergic reaction to proteins found in crayfish, a type of shellfish. Similar to other shellfish allergies, it can range from mild to severe and can be potentially life-threatening in some cases. People with crayfish allergy may react not only to eating crayfish but also to inhaling steam from cooking crayfish.
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.
Meat (pork, beef, chicken, lamb)
Meat allergy occurs when the immune system mistakenly identifies certain proteins found in meat as harmful, triggering an allergic reaction. Unlike food intolerances that primarily affect digestion, meat allergies can cause a wide range of symptoms, from mild to severe.
Orange
Orange allergy is an immune response to certain proteins found in oranges. While less common than some other food allergies, it can cause adverse reactions in sensitive individuals. Reactions can range from mild oral allergy symptoms to more severe systemic effects, and they can occur from both eating oranges and exposure to orange peel or juice.
Peach
Peach allergy is an immune system response to proteins found in peaches, a condition more commonly observed in people with tree pollen allergies due to cross-reactivity. This type of allergy can vary from mild oral allergy symptoms to more severe, potentially life-threatening reactions like anaphylaxis.
Peanuts
Peanut allergy is one of the most common food allergies, particularly in children, and involves an overreaction of the immune system to proteins found in peanuts. Unlike tree nut allergies, peanut allergy is to a legume, not a true nut. This allergy can range from mild reactions to severe, potentially life-threatening conditions like anaphylaxis.
Potato
Potato allergy is a relatively uncommon food allergy that involves an immune response to proteins found in potatoes. It can affect individuals of all ages and manifest in various ways, from skin reactions to gastrointestinal and respiratory symptoms. This allergy can be triggered by both raw and cooked potatoes.
Rice
Rice allergy is an uncommon food allergy where the body's immune system reacts to proteins found in rice. Although less prevalent than other food allergies, it can cause various symptoms in sensitive individuals. Rice allergy can affect both children and adults and may be triggered by both white and brown rice.
Salmon
Salmon allergy is an allergic reaction to specific proteins found in salmon, a commonly consumed fish. This type of allergy falls under fish allergies, which are more prevalent in adults than in children. Salmon allergy can lead to various symptoms and can be triggered by both cooked and raw salmon.
Shrimp
Shrimp allergy is a common type of shellfish allergy, involving an immune reaction to proteins found in shrimp. It's one of the most common food allergies in adults and can cause a range of symptoms from mild to severe, including the risk of anaphylaxis. Shrimp allergy is typically lifelong and can be triggered by eating shrimp or even by inhaling steam from cooking shrimp.
Soy
Soy allergy is a common food allergy, particularly in children, resulting from an immune system reaction to soy proteins. Found in a variety of foods and products, soy can trigger reactions ranging from mild symptoms to severe allergic responses like anaphylaxis. Soy allergy is often seen in early childhood, and some children may outgrow it over time.
Strawberry
Strawberry allergy is a reaction to certain proteins found in strawberries. It's relatively rare compared to other food allergies but can cause discomfort and health issues in sensitive individuals. The allergy can manifest in various ways, from mild reactions, such as oral allergy syndrome, to more severe systemic responses.
Tomato
Tomato allergy is an adverse immune response to proteins found in tomatoes. While not as common as some other food allergies, it can cause various symptoms in sensitive individuals. This type of allergy is often associated with skin reactions but can also affect other systems of the body.
Wheat
Wheat allergy is an allergic reaction to proteins found in wheat. It's one of the most common food allergies, particularly in children, and should not be confused with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, which are different conditions. Wheat allergy can cause a range of symptoms, from mild to severe, including the risk of anaphylaxis.

Pollen Allergens tested

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.
Bermuda grass (pollen)
Bermuda grass pollen allergy is a type of allergic reaction to the pollen grains released by Bermuda grass, a common grass species in warmer regions, especially used for lawns, parks, and golf courses. This allergy is a form of seasonal allergic rhinitis, often flaring up during the grass-pollinating seasons, typically late spring and summer.
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!
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.
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.
Mugwort (pollen)
Mugwort pollen allergy is a reaction to the pollen of the mugwort plant, a common weed found in many parts of the world. This type of allergy typically occurs in late summer and fall when mugwort pollinates. It's known for causing hay fever symptoms and can be particularly troublesome for those with other plant-based allergies.
Olive (pollen)
Olive pollen allergy is a type of allergic reaction to the pollen grains released by olive trees. This allergy is especially prevalent in regions where olive trees are widely cultivated. Olive pollen is a common allergen and typically causes symptoms during the pollination season, which occurs in late spring and early summer.
Ribwort plantain (pollen)
Ribwort plantain pollen allergy is a reaction to the pollen from the ribwort plantain plant, a common weed found in many regions. This type of allergy is part of seasonal allergic rhinitis or hay fever and tends to flare up during the plant's pollinating season, typically in late spring and early summer.
Rye (pollen)
Rye pollen allergy is an allergic response to the pollen grains produced by rye grass, a common grass species used in agriculture and found in many natural landscapes. This allergy is a form of seasonal allergic rhinitis, often peaking during the grass pollination season in late spring and early summer.
Timothy grass (pollen)
Timothy grass pollen allergy is a reaction to the pollen of Timothy grass, a common type of grass used in hay and prevalent in many temperate regions. This allergy is a form of seasonal allergic rhinitis and typically flares up during the grass's pollinating season, usually in late spring and early summer.
Wormwood ambrosia (pollen)
Wormwood Ambrosia pollen allergy, often referred to as an allergy to ragweed pollen, is a common allergic reaction to the pollen of the wormwood ambrosia, or common ragweed plant. This plant is widespread, particularly in North America, and blooms late in the summer through fall, causing seasonal allergic rhinitis or hay fever in sensitized individuals.

Allergy Test UK

GetTested's Home Allergy Test covers 95% of the most common UK allergies, measuring 38 different items. Allergic reactions can vary from mild symptoms like a runny nose or a rash to severe ones. You can easily perform this test at home with a simple finger-prick blood sample. Professionals in an ISO-certified lab will then analyze your sample.

Distinguishing Between Allergy, Food Intolerance, and Histamine Intolerance

Sometimes reactions are not due to allergies, but rather to food or histamine intolerances. Allergies trigger an immune response, while food intolerances lead to gastrointestinal and other bodily reactions. They involve different antibodies. Histamine intolerance, which can mimic allergy symptoms, is caused by a deficiency of the enzyme diamine oxidase (DAO), needed to break down histamine in food. If your symptoms are more consistent with food intolerances, consider our combined Allergy & Food Intolerance Test.

Tips for Optimal Results from Your Allergy Test

For accurate results from the Allergy Test UK, it's important to have been exposed to the allergens being tested within the last three months. Testing after a longer period may not accurately reflect the potential impact on your results.

Armed with this newfound knowledge, I've made lifestyle shifts — from diet modifications to creating an allergen-free living space. The change is palpable. Those unpredictable sneezes and rashes? Significantly diminished. More than just a test, it felt like a guide to understanding my body better and crafting a life aligned with its unique needs. To anyone navigating the maze of unexplained allergic reactions, I can't recommend this test enough. It's a gateway to understanding and wellness. :) :D
