About the IgE Food Allergy Test - Mumbai
Allergies occur when your immune system reacts to certain foreign substances like dust, pollen, or smoke that don’t cause a reaction in most people. Food allergy antibodies can emerge in our body when consuming allergens that may be present in our meals. An IgE test can detect our allergic reaction to certain foods, giving us a complete food allergy profile.
When you’re exposed to the allergen, the antibodies release a number of chemicals, such as histamine, that can inflame your skin, sinuses, airways, or digestive system. A food allergy test in Mumbai through MyDiagnostics can help provide detailed information on the severity and types of allergic reactions we can experience. Both vegetarian and non-vegetarian foods are tested for understanding how our body reacts to a range of allergens.
A report is also generated within 3-5 days, containing necessary information about severe and mild allergic reactions. Triggering foods are highlighted, such as meat, fish, dairy, and nuts, giving us more control over what we should eat and what to avoid. The food allergy Mumbai package is a home-test kit with all instructions presented on how to provide a blood sample.
