Description

Washington DC, States of Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, and Virginia

 

Order a respiratory allergen panel region 2 IgE blood test to detect an allergy to allergens commonly found in the Washington DC, Delaware, Maryland, North Carolina, and Virginia region. This test measures the amount of allergen-specific antibodies in a blood sample.

An allergy triggers a reaction in an individual's immune system. The body views certain substances as toxic and produces IgE antibodies to these contaminants. These antibodies cause histamine to be released, which will cause the symptoms of an allergic reaction.

 

Allergy symptoms vary from one individual to the next ranging from mild to severe reactions. The most common environmental allergy symptoms may include one or more of the following:

 

  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose
  • Nasal congestion
