It is not unheard for people to commonly fall sick during seasonal changes or when exposed to external pollutants like dust or pollen. In some cases, the symptoms of being sick can also be triggered by eating a particular food item or petting an animal.
The consequences can be mild like sneezing, headache, teary-eyed, or severe like asthma or anaphylactic shock. These allergies are long-term conditions that are directly related to your immune system.
The immune system is solely responsible for producing antibodies to fight unknown bacteria, viruses, and other potential threats. If you are allergic, your body's immune system will consider certain substances, like pollen or nuts, harmful. As a result, it will produce antibodies, thus resulting in allergy-like symptoms.
The allergy blood test package at Apollo 24|7 is quite extensive and includes three further tests, i.e., Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) test, total IgE test, and Complete Blood Count (CBC). With 36 years of experience in the healthcare industry, Apollo 24|7 offers affordable and reliable diagnostic solutions from the comfort of your home.
The Erythrocyte Sedimentation Rate (ESR) test helps measure how quickly the Erythrocytes (Red Blood Cells) settle down in a test tube full of the blood sample. Usually, the process of settling down is completed gradually.
However, the faster pace may suggest bouts of inflammation in the body. It can be a sign of immune system disorder or a chronic disease. The expected range of the result of this test can vary from one medical practitioner to another.
Generally, the accepted range is 0 to 29 mm/hr for women and 0 to 22 mm/hr for men. By diagnosing the conditions related to the immune systems, this part of the allergy blood test can help determine the actual cause of the problem.
The immunoglobulin blood test measures the total amount of IgE antibodies in your body. The resulting value is the total of all forms of IgE. However, it does not distinctly specify the number of forms of immunoglobulin antibodies, each of which is responsible for a different impact on your immune system. The total IgE test helps diagnose health conditions like immune disorders or infections.
The Complete Blood Count (CBC) test is quite extensive and measures the level of 13 blood components, like haemoglobin, lymphocytes, neutrophils, eosinophils, platelet count etc., in your body.
Each of these components has a set function in your body, and their low or high levels can affect the immune system. This test helps diagnose immune disorders, anaemia, infections, and blood-related cancers. The CBC test is also administered to check the allergy treatments and their impact on your body.
You should consider the allergy blood test under the following conditions:
