Find out if allergies could be triggering your symptoms
The SELFCheck Allergy Test will tell you whether the level of allergy antibodies in your blood is high or in the normal range ie. whether any symptoms might be allergy related.
Allergy symptoms are often confused with the symptoms of a bacterial or viral infection such as rashes, sneezing, sore throat, cough and runny nose.
Allergies are a major trigger of hay fever (rhinitis), eczema, asthma and food sensitivity. People with allergy sensitivities often produce high levels of allergy antibodies in their blood known as ImmunoglobulinE (IgE).
If you have a higher than normal IgE antibody level and/or symptoms that might be allergy related, speak with your doctor who can arrange for skin testing or further blood tests to pin-point which specific allergens could be triggering your symptoms.
You don’t need to be having symptoms at the the time you do your test.
What your result means
The SELFCheck Allergy Test will show if the level of IgE in your blood is normal or high.
- A negative result means that your IgE levels are in the normal range. If you do not have symptoms it is unlikely that you will benefit from further tests
- A positive result means that your IgE level is higher than normal and, if you also have symptoms, you should speak with your doctor for further tests to identify specific allergen triggers that might be triggering your symptoms
How accurate is the test?
In independent laboratory studies the SELFCheck Allergy Test has been shown to agree 97% with laboratory test results and is CE accredited according to Medical Device Directive 98/79EC for testing at home.
How does the test work?
A finger prick blood spot is required and is obtained by using the sterile automatic finger pricker provided with the test kit.
The test takes 10 minutes to complete when your result will be displayed on the test cassette as less than or greater than the cut-off of 150kU/L of IgE antibodies calibrated to WHO standards.
