Symptoms such as sneezing, running nose, cough, skin redness, rashes, stomach problems etc. can be associated with various non-allergy conditions.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Patris Health® Allergy Home Test

What is the role of IgE antibodies in diagnosing an allergy?

Allergy is determined as an abnormal immune response to allergens (non-infectious environmental substances).1 When the body gets in contact with a specific allergen, the body’s immune system produces specific IgE antibodies. The immune system releases these IgE antibodies in the blood, which attach to specific cells that release chemicals, causing an allergic reaction.2 Therefore, when IgE antibodies are present in the blood, it means you have an allergy.

When it makes sense to get tested for allergies?

Allergy testing makes sense when you are experiencing symptoms of an allergy, and you are not sure what is causing them.

Therefore, checking if an allergy is the cause may help you manage them properly.
