The Lamb Allergy test determines whether a person is allergic to lamb meat. Compared to allergies to fish, poultry, cow's milk, tree nuts, gluten, soy, and seafood, allergies to lamb are comparatively uncommon. However, the development of a lamb allergy can occur at any age, which typically includes the involvement of alpha galactose (alpha-gal), a carbohydrate molecule.

A person's immune system reacts when they have a lamb allergy. The body creates Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies against some substances since it perceives them as potentially dangerous. An allergic response is indicated by the release of histamine induced by these antibodies. People who have allergies to mutton may also become sensitive to beef because several of the allergens in sheep's meat are also present in beef.

Depending on their particular allergies, individuals might experience mild to severe reactions to lamb meat. One or more of the following are typical indications of a lamb allergy:

  • Wheezing or breathlessness 
  • Headaches 
  • Sniffles and runny nose
  • Irritation or hives 
  • Abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhoea, or vomiting
  • Anaphylaxis, in extreme circumstances

These allergic responses resemble those of other allergies. However, you should take the required action to address the issue and seek medical advice. It is essential to speak with a doctor for additional treatment if you are not currently taking any allergy medications.

The Lamb Allergy Test is one of the most effective methods to manage allergic reactions brought on by lamb allergens. Doctors perform this test to identify the primary triggers of the allergic reaction and the best ways to treat it. The test looks at the IgE antibodies produced by the immune mechanism in response to the allergen. You likely have a lamb allergy if your antibody levels aren't at their ideal levels.

Furthermore, the Lamb Allergy Test can help the physician identify and manage threatening diseases like anaphylaxis, contact dermatitis, and allergic rhinitis. There are no risks involved in the test.

Apollo 24|7 offers a comprehensive Lamb Allergy test which is quick, painless, and accurate.  
The appropriate course of action should be discussed with a person's doctor after a positive Lamb Allergy test result.

If you learn that you have a lamb allergy, you can take several different actions. Eliminating lamb and related products from your diet can be a simple way to cure a lamb allergy. On rare occasions, your doctor might advise taking antihistamines.
