Blood testing

In the setting of allergies, blood testing can be performed to look for specific IgE immunoglobulins (or antibodies) to certain allergens. This modality is most often used for allergies to insects and foods, as it tends to be less sensitive and specific in those with environmental allergens. Blood testing is also useful in evaluating non-allergic conditions. There are a wide variety of conditions seen in the setting of an Allergy clinic that may necessitate blood testing. Some tests specific to an allergy clinic might include quantitative analysis of immunoglobulins (to look for an immunodeficiency), serum tryptase, and C1 esterase inhibitor levels (as seen in those with Hereditary Angioedema) to name a few.
