Allergy Check is a simple, safe and accurate way to find out whether you have an allergy.
The test can be used at any time of the year. You do not need to be having an allergic reaction at the time of testing. It is not necessary to stop any medication before using this product.
The test requires only a small amount of blood obtained hygienically and with minimal discomfort and detects antibodies in your blood known as Immunoglobulin E (IgE). High levels are associated with increased susceptibility to allergy.
Allergy Check (this kit measures the total ‘allergy’ antibody present in the blood and is veryuseful for helping to differentiate between a genuine food allergy or other systemicproblems like food intolerance, as well as confirming whether the patient’s respiratorysymptoms are of a viral/bacterial origin or a genuine allergy)
If you have rheumatic disease (arthritis) the Allergy Check test is NOT suitable for you to use in the diagnosis of a general allergic condition. (Our Specific Allergy tests can be used instead, but it should be noted that very weak positive results may be observed even if you do not have a specific allergy).
Allergy Check test results have been proven to compare well to laboratory testing, but no single test to diagnose allergy is completely accurate.
The test kit is not suitable for children under 6 years old; a parent should perform the test on children under 16 years old.
