From the expert

This allergy screen provides an analysis of fourteen commonly eaten nuts and seeds  which can cause IgE mediated allergies.  This is an ideal test to be used as an initial investigation screen for people with signs of IgE mediated allergy such as hives, redness of the skin, vomiting and lip or facial swelling which develops quickly after being exposed to an allergen.

The nuts and seeds tested are:
Brazil nut
Cashew nut
Hazel nut
Macadamia nut
Pine nut
Sesame seed
Pumpkin seed
Sunflower seed
Poppy seed

This test also checks levels of total immunoglobulin E, which are often increased in people with an IgE mediated allergy.
