We have now monitored our indoor spaces and lined up the allergy-causing culprits hidden in every nook and corner!
We are not allergic to every single allergen around us - that's the strangest part of the human body. So the next step is to find out which of these allergens are causing or can cause allergic reactions in us.
For this, we require proof - trustworthy evidence of the existence of or even a possibility of developing allergies.
This is where allergy testing comes in.
Jumping right into the treatment of symptoms without finding out what the allergen is just pushing our luck as far as the medications can manage. At some point, we would either be dependent on the medication completely or be forced to start additional treatment to avoid the long-term adverse effects of the anti-allergens.
But why is allergy testing considered tough? Earlier, skin tests were the only option for allergy testing - the logic involves introducing the suspected allergen on or below the patient's skin and assessing the skin's response to the allergen.
Though these tests are sensitive to allergens, skin tests suffer from the following disadvantages:
- Patients with severe allergic conditions - asthma, eczema, dermatitis, etc. - find it tough to manage the inconvenience of the skin tests
- Skin tests are painful for many patients
- Skin testing needs to be done cautiously on elderly patients, avoided in pregnant patients, and need special medical advice in patients with specific medical conditions and parallel intake of medications.
An in vitro blood test that ensures accurate, rapid, and high-quality assessment of the entire allergy profile of patients is hence the ideal option.
Allergy in vitro blood tests are effective means of identifying multiple allergies in patients at the same time. These tests are precise and even minute levels of allergen-specific antibodies can be detected accurately. Since the allergen is not inserted into the patient's body, there is no risk of pain, discomfort, or the fear of unexpected severe reactions.
With the added benefits of getting the lab specialists to visit homes to collect blood samples and viewing results online, in vitro blood tests for allergy testing are definitely a hassle-free, accurate, and trustworthy method of determining sensitivity to allergy.
With a clear report of the list of allergens, the next steps of treatment, avoidance, and elimination of allergies will be well-informed and focused rather than just shots in the dark against unknown attackers.
