The Pea Allergy test helps determine if an individual will experience allergic reaction when exposed to peas.

Undeveloped peas are less allergenic than ripe peas because there are fewer storage albumin proteins. The storage proteins are predicted to include allergens. Although immature seeds and all stages of pea development exhibit allergenicity and IgE-binding capability, total IgE-binding capacity increases as pea development advances. The albumin fraction has the highest allergenic potency. However, the glutelin and globulin fractions also make peas more allergic.

An excessive immunological response to the proteins in peas results in a pea allergy. The body develops a defence mechanism to fend off the pea proteins because it does not perceive them as safe. When IgE antibodies travel through the bloodstream, a series of events triggers mast cells to release large amounts of histamine. Histamine causes soft tissue irritation, which results in typical allergy symptoms. Each person's allergy will be different in terms of severity. To help gauge the severity of a person's reaction, a Pea Allergy test yields numerical findings for IgE antibody levels.

Individuals with peas allergy may likewise be oversensitive to different sorts of lentils and different vegetables like beans and peanuts. If you have food sensitivities, it is wise to examine the ingredients and guarantee that you are eating health and unadulterated food.

After intake, allergy signs can appear anywhere between a few minutes and several hours later. Typical food allergy symptoms include:

  • Rashes
  • Stings 
  • Itching 
  • Coughing 
  • Sneezing  
  • Throat tightness 
  • Vomiting  
  • Nausea 
  • Diarrhoea 
  • Light headedness 
  • Dizziness

Anaphylaxis, a potentially lethal condition, can develop in people with severe allergies.

Apollo 24|7’s Pea Allergy test measures the Immunoglobulin (IgE) antibodies made against pea and is allergen-specific. IgE concentrations of more than 0.7 kU/L are regarded as indicative of allergic responses.

Testing for pea allergies can also determine whether you actually have a pea allergy or just a sensitivity to them. Food intolerance, also known as food sensitivity, and food allergies are frequently misunderstood. The two conditions can have comparable symptoms but also have entirely distinct implications.

You should avoid peas if a Pea Allergy test reveals that you are allergic to them. Food allergies cannot be cured, but cutting them out of your diet should minimize allergic symptoms. Attentively reading product labels can help you avoid peas. Additionally, it implies that anybody who makes or serves food to you must be informed of the allergy.

faqFrequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Allergies to peas can cause anything from minor discomfort to severe reactions. Itching, rashes, inflammation of the lips, tongue, or neck, chest pains, breathlessness, and abdominal pain are all signs of a pea allergy.
Although less frequent than allergies to several other legumes, pea allergies are well documented. Food companies are rapidly using high-protein pea components. Several pea allergens have been discovered, partially resembling proteins from soybean and peanut.
For pea allergy, blood testing is widely accessible. None of these assessments can definitively predict how someone will respond to the food. Experts often say that an individual is hypersensitive if they experience allergic reactions after eating peas and receive positive result after a test.
Foods that are rich in protein, like pea protein, are likely to cause more adverse reactions if unintentionally consumed by those who are sensitive to that food. This is because proteins are what cause allergic reactions typically. Pea protein should therefore be of particular concern to those with a pea allergy.
Legumes are generally not well tolerated by persons with histamine-related conditions. Pea protein probably contains a lot of histamine and other amines. It might also act as a histamine liberator, releasing histamine already present in the body. Everybody has different dietary triggers.
A Pea Allergy test does not require any special preparation on your part. At times, your medical care supplier might ask you to fast before the test. However, it is essential to inform them as to whether you take allergy medications. They could request that you avoid taking them before the test.
