Allergies are among the most common chronic conditions affecting people around the world. Symptoms can range from mild discomfort like sneezing and itchy eyes, to severe reactions such as anaphylaxis. Unfortunately many people become accustomed to their symptoms and suffer needlessly.
To help your patients find out if they are allergic to a particular substance, Dynacare tests for more than 100 different allergens – such as food, animal dander, pollens, mould, trees, weeds, grasses and insect venom. In addition, we also test for more than 20 allergen components, such as peanut components. We use two types of tests – a traditional skin prick test
performed by an Allergist, and a blood test
, where a small amount of blood is drawn and the level of allergen-specific antibodies is measured.
