Indoor & Outdoor Allergy Package
Find out how you react to the most common seasonal and year-round allergens.
Whether it’s a tickle in your throat, itchy, watery eyes, or you can’t stop sneezing—allergies could be to blame. This allergy test looks at your body’s immune response to common allergens found outside and inside your home that are known to trigger allergic reactions.
What are IgE antibodies?
Individuals who are allergic to specific allergens develop IgE (immunoglobulin E) antibodies to those allergens. IgE is a protective blood protein that is produced when you’re exposed to a substance that your body views as a threat. Therefore, measurable IgE may indicate the presence of an allergy.
Having measurable IgE for a particular allergen does not guarantee that you are allergic to that allergen. Higher IgE levels mean that you have a higher chance of having a true allergy, but do not predict how severe your allergic symptoms could be.1
IgE testing is not considered sufficient to diagnose an allergy on its own.2 Although measurement of allergen-specific IgE can enhance the evaluation of potential allergies, other factors will help tell the full story. Your clinical history, age, and the presence of other conditions (such as atopic dermatitis) should be discussed with a healthcare professional before making an allergy diagnosis.
