    When the body's immune mechanism perceives seafood as toxic, it develops a seafood allergy. Seafood allergies in certain persons can result in potentially fatal reactions. If one variety of seafood causes an allergic reaction in you, another might not. The best course of action is to discuss the kinds of seafood you can and cannot eat with your allergist.

    Like other food allergies, seafood allergy can cause any of the symptoms listed below:

    • Anxiety, discomfort, dizziness, and weakness 
    • Diarrhoea, vomiting, and cramps
    • Difficulty speaking, swallowing, or breathing
    • Eye, lip, tongue, face, and throat swelling
    • Rashes or hives
    • Loss of consciousness 
    • Itchy and flushed skin
    • A rapid drop in blood pressure

    Eliminating seafood from your diet can be more challenging than it first appears. It is a common element in many delicacies, meals, and snacks. Seafood is most frequently found in the following foods:

    • Dishes that often feature sauces made of fish, such as oyster sauce
    • Soups and broths with seafood 
    • Condiments such as taramasalata
    • Sauces such as Worcestershire and steak
    • Seafood broths and soups

    The Seafood Allergy test methodology includes a quick, five-minute blood test. The service provider cleans the puncture site before injecting blood with a syringe. After obtaining the sample, they once again clean the puncture site to avoid any surface infections. The method used to gauge Immunoglobulin E (IgE) levels is flow cytometry. This method is suitable for a Seafood Allergy test since it comprehensively analyses all cell-based components.

    A Seafood Allergy test's main advantage is that numerous cells are checked to gather accurate statistical data regarding your allergy. This allows the doctor to recognise the allergy, validate it, and search for patterns. Apollo 24|7 offers a Seafood Allergy test that may accurately detect seafood allergies. Here are a few more instances where an allergy screening may be beneficial: 

    • Estimating the potential severity of an allergic reaction 
    • Describing the required remedies

    Additionally, the results of a Seafood Allergy test might help doctors determine a patient's cross-reactive sensitivity.

    You can still maintain a healthy diet even if you are allergic to fish or seafood. Look for new ways to substitute the seafood you can't eat by using other protein sources, such as beans, chicken, nuts, lean meats, tofu, lentils, and, eggs. Avoid taking a chance if you are unsure about a product's seafood content.

    To prevent a seafood allergy, it is crucial to study the component list of dietary products every time carefully.
