About Allergy mini check

What is the Allergy Mini Check?

Immunoglobulin E (IgE) is a type of antibody typically produced by the immune system to protect against pathogens such as bacteria, viruses and parasites. Some people have a hyperactive immune system, which produces IgE in response to certain allergens. This process mistakes harmless molecules for pathogens, typically causing symptoms such as rashes, blocked/runny noses or respiratory problems. Allergies are thought to affect over 1 in 4 people in the UK at some point during their lifetime. 

Why take the test?

This is a general test to identify a potential allergic response in the body. It measures the levels of IgE in the blood and can be used to decide whether further, specific allergen testing is recommended.
