    Everyone’s body reacts to non-vegetarian foods in different ways. Some people experience internal reactions upon ingesting certain non-veg foods. These internal reactions are allergies that often trigger different symptoms. For instance, you can experience itching, running nose, or abdominal pain after eating a specific non-veg item. 

    The Allergy Non-Veg Food Panel Testing

    Apollo 24|7’s non-veg allergy determination package consists of ten tests. Each of these medical tests detect the allergic reactions to particular foods.

    Your immune system produces antibodies that fight disease-causing pathogens and foreign substances. In certain cases, the antibodies tend to identify and fight substances (allergens) that aren’t actually harmful. When your immune system identifies the presence of allergens, it produces Immunoglobulin (IgE) antibodies to fight against allergens. The IgE antibodies fight allergens by releasing histamines, which are chemicals that trigger symptoms of allergy like itchy skin, swelling of lips or face, and dizziness.

    The objective of the allergy non-veg food panel test is to identify these allergens. The test examines the presence of antibodies after consuming different non-vegetarian foods. Here are the ten food items in the panel:

    • Beef
    • Chicken
    • Fish (cod)
    • Crab 
    • Egg white
    • Lobster
    • Pork
    • Salmon 
    • Shrimp
    • Tuna

    The test checks for the presence of Immunoglobulin (IgE) antibodies in your blood sample. A positive result implies that you are sensitised to a specific non-veg food.

    Why Should You Get Tested?

    Food allergies can lead to skin, mouth, digestive tract, and stomach issues. If you notice persistent symptoms like headache, dizziness, and nausea after eating certain foods, it is essential to take the Allergy Non-Veg Panel Test.

    The allergies can lead to chronic health issues like indigestion if you overlook the symptoms. Gradually, your body will become prone to unwanted health complications. So, to identify and eliminate non-veg foods that can cause allergies, you should undergo this test.

    Frequently asked questions

    No, there are no such risks associated with the Non-veg allergy test panel. The test uses a blood sample; hence, the most that can happen is some light scarring or bruising at the point of contact with the needle.
    Here are some of the most common symptoms associated with the onset of a non-veg food allergy: Tingling or itching in the mouth Hives Itching or eczema Swelling of the lips, face, tongue, and throat or other parts of the body Wheezing  Nasal congestion  Trouble breathing Abdominal pain Diarrhea Nausea or Vomiting Dizziness  lightheadedness  fainting.
    Here are the four primary types of allergic reactions: Type I: This allergic reaction is mediated by IgE antibodies  Type II: This Cytotoxic reaction is mediated by IgM or IgG antibodies  Type III: This reaction is mediated by immune complexes  Type IV: This delayed reaction is mediated by cellular response   
    There is no cure for food allergies. However, it is possible to outgrow the allergy and eventually acquire tolerance. This is only after sensitization has occurred. One hiccup with this is that growing a natural tolerance might be a little more infrequent for food allergens. In this case, you can opt for immunotherapy to give your immune system a fighting chance and change how it responds to the allergen.
    Vitamin C is the best way to reduce the effect of your allergy symptoms. It acts as a natural antihistamine and lowers the histamine levels in your bloodstream.  Hence, you can use vitamin C supplements to alleviate mild allergy symptoms such as a runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes, etc.
    No, it isn’t possible to cure your allergy. However, you can treat its individual symptoms and manage the disease better. Moreover, you need to stay away from your allergen at all times to prevent an unprecedented reaction.   Also, stay aware of your surroundings and figure out a way to keep your allergen as far away as possible.
