Hazelnuts are a type of dry fruit that is commonly used in the preparation of sweets and baked goods.However, some individuals can develop allergies to hazelnuts. The allergy can range from mild to severe and can cause life-threatening symptoms in rare cases. Allergy, Hazelnut Panel is a laboratory test used to detect the presence of an allergy to hazelnuts in individuals. This test is recommended for individuals who are experiencing symptoms of hazelnut allergy or have a family history of nut allergies.

Symptoms of hazelnut allergy include:

Symptoms of hazelnut allergy can range from mild to severe and can occur within minutes to hours after exposure to hazelnuts. Some of the common symptoms include:

  • Itching or tingling in the mouth
  • Swelling of the lips, tongue, or throat
  • Hives or rash on the skin
  • Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhoea
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Chest pain or tightness
  • Anaphylaxis (a severe life-threatening reaction)

Test Procedure:

The Allergy, Hazelnut Panel test is a blood test that requires the collection of a sample. The blood sample can be collected by a healthcare professional in a laboratory or clinic setting. During the test, a needle is inserted into the vein in the arm, and a small amount of blood is drawn. The collected blood sample is then sent to the laboratory for analysis.

At the lab, the sample will be analysed using the ELISA (Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) method. In this method, hazelnut proteins are attached to a solid surface (microplate), and the patient's serum is added to the plate. If the patient has a hazelnut allergy, their serum will contain IgE antibodies that will bind to the hazelnut proteins on the microplate. A secondary antibody is then added, which binds to the IgE antibodies and produces a reaction that can be measured by a spectrophotometer.

Treatment:

If an individual is diagnosed with a hazelnut allergy, they should avoid exposure to hazelnuts and any products containing them. Treatment for mild symptoms may include antihistamines, such as Benadryl, to reduce itching and swelling. In severe cases, individuals may need epinephrine injections to manage anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction. It is essential to carry an epinephrine auto-injector at all times if an individual has a known hazelnut allergy.

Additionally, early detection can help individuals take necessary precautions while consuming food items that may contain hazelnuts.
 

faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Frequently asked questions

Hazelnut allergies occur due to the body’s immune system treating specific proteins in the nut as allergens. This activates the immune response and triggers the release of IgE antibodies to fight the allergens, contributing to the symptoms of an allergy.
Usually, mild symptoms like itchiness of the mouth and nasal congestion may occur due to hazelnut allergies. However, sometimes this allergy may lead to anaphylaxis, a life-threatening condition that sends the body into a state of shock. It may even cause death.
Tree nut allergies, like hazelnut allergies, are caused due to the body’s sensitivity toward a specific protein in the nut. Thus, people allergic to hazelnuts may also be allergic to birch pollen, and vice versa, due to the same proteins being present in both.
The hazelnut allergy test is a standard blood test with little to no complications. At most, there might be some adverse reactions on the skin after the lab technician draws blood. These are usually minor bruises that fade away rapidly.
There are two standard methods that can be employed for allergies – skin prick and blood test. The former involves scratching the allergen lightly on the skin to check for adverse reactions. On the other hand, a hazelnut allergy blood test involves separating blood and testing it to detect the presence of hazelnut allergies.
Most labs have the results of a hazelnut allergy test ready within six days of getting tested. Although this duration depends on the lab and their testing equipment, it usually does not take more than a week.
The cost of the test may vary depending on the location and healthcare provider. Please check Apollo 24|7's website for details on pricing.
The results of the test will be available within seven days of sample collection.
The test is highly accurate in detecting hazelnut allergy by measuring IgE antibodies in the blood.
This test is not recommended for children below ten years of age. Parents can consult a pediatrician for appropriate allergy testing for their children.
Individuals with a positive diagnosis should avoid exposure to hazelnuts and any products containing them. They should also follow up with their healthcare provider for further evaluation and management of symptoms.
