Canary Feather Allergy Blood Test
The canary feather allergy blood test checks for an allergic reaction to canary feathers by assessing the level of the IgE antibodies in the blood.
Many people have birds as companions, and the most beloved is the canary. These birds are bright in color, small in size, and are known for their singing ability. Their feathers could cause their owners some troublesome allergies, though. Although, the feathers themselves aren’t the sole source of allergens. The dander from the feathers is what will cause more trouble. Allergens can be found within the birds’ fecal matter as well.
Symptoms could include:
• Hay fever
• Sore throat
• Black circles under the eyes
• Postnasal drip
In extreme cases, one could experience:
• Reduced lung capacity
• Weight loss
• Breathing difficulties
To determine the appropriate follow-up, positive allergy test results should be discussed with your physician.
