IgM for Food Allergy Test

A food allergy occurs when your immune system mistreats an ordinarily harmless food as a virus, bacteria, or other infectious agents. An allergic reaction to food might cause modest rashes, gastrointestinal pain, or anaphylactic shock, which can be fatal.

Food allergies affect approximately 5% of children in the United States. Many children outgrow their allergies. The following foods cause about 90% of all food allergies:

  • Milk
  • Soy Wheat Eggs
  • Nuts (including almonds, walnuts, pecans, and cashews)
  • Fish
  • Shellfish Peanuts

Small amounts of allergenic food might cause life-threatening symptoms in certain people. Peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish, and fish are commonly allergenic foods.

Food allergy testing can determine if you or your child is allergic. A referral will likely follow any suspicion of a food allergy to an allergist. An allergist is a doctor who specializes in allergy and asthma treatment.

Why Done? 

Food allergy testing determines if you or your child has a food allergy. It can also decide whether or not you have a natural allergy or a food sensitivity.

Food sensitivity is commonly confused with food allergy. The symptoms of both illnesses are similar, but the complications are not.

Food allergies are immune system reactions that can affect various organs and harm your health. Food sensitivity is usually minor, and food sensitivity occurs when your body cannot adequately digest or tolerate food. Food sensitivity symptoms include stomach aches, nausea, flatulence, and diarrhoea.

Typical food sensitivities:

  • Lactose a milk sugar. It's similar to a milk allergy.
  • MSG, a common food ingredient
  • Gluten is a protein present in wheat and barley. In contrast with wheat allergies. Gluten sensitivity and wheat allergy are not the same things. When you eat gluten, your immune system damages your small intestine. A food sensitivity or food allergy is not celiac disease.


You'll have blood extracted from an arm vein.
