This test will benefit anyone suffering from symptoms relating to indoor, outdoor, animal, insect, or food allergens.

Our test results measure your Immunoglobulin E (IgE) which is an antibody that's produced by the body’s immune system in response to a perceived threat. This information can be immensely helpful in understanding which allergens may be causing undesired symptoms, so you can better prepare for allergy seasons and proactively reduce exposure at home. Even the presence of insects like cockroaches and dust mites can trigger an allergic reaction, because their remains can survive even after they die.

Allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S. with more than 50 million Americans affected each year

Common allergy symptoms to watch for:

Allergic reactions can vary widely in both type and severity depending on the person and allergy. The following symptoms are strong indications that you should get tested:

Itchy or watery eyes
Sneezing and/or coughing
Periodic or persistent itching, hives
Congestion
Persistent diarrhea
Difficulty breathing
Nausea or vomiting

What is allergen specific IgE?

Allergen-specific IgE tests measure your antibody response to individual substances. An elevated specific-IgE can help you understand which particular foods or environments you may need to reduce your exposure to. The overall quantity of IgE antibodies in the blood helps screen and detect the exact trigger that is causing your symptoms.

What is the difference between IgG and IgE?

Unlike an IgG test  (known as a food sensitivity test), which only measures the common antibody immunoglobulin G and doesn't accurately predict specific food allergies, an IgE test focuses on the class of antibody that's directly associated with allergic reactions — giving you much more specific results when it comes to identifying allergic triggers.

Who is the most at risk?

Among children who have food allergies, over 40% have experienced a severe allergic reaction. Even the presence of insects like cockroaches and dust mites can trigger an allergic reaction because their remains can survive even after they die. Allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S. with more than 50 million Americans affected each year.

What’s the benefit of early testing?

Identifying your allergies early can help reduce exposure to triggers and protect yourself from potentially severe reactions. This knowledge will also help you understand and pursue targeted treatment options that are available to improve your condition and reduce your risk. Periodically measuring your IgE levels will also allow you to monitor the effectiveness of your immunotherapy treatment.

IgE Allergy Test FAQ's

Who can order an imaware™ test?

This test is only for adults aged 18 and older. Unfortunately, this test is not available in the state of New York due to state regulations.

If I find out I have allergy triggers, how do I deal with them?

If you have elevated IgE levels for any indoor, outdoor, or food allergies, a board-certified allergist can work with you to create a program that helps to alleviate symptoms. This can include the use of antihistamine and other medications, allergen avoidance and immunotherapy.

Plus sign icon

Is a food allergy the same as a food sensitivity?

No. A food allergy (measured by IgE) is not the same as a sensitivity to food, which is typically found through an extensive elimination diet while working with a dietitian. A food allergy is more serious and can have much more severe consequences if left unchecked, while a food sensitivity would not involve an immune response. Read our guide to food allergy vs food intolerance.

Plus sign icon

I took a food sensitivity test, is this the same thing?

No. There is no true, science-based test for food sensitivities. The food sensitivity tests on the market are not recommended by allergists, as they can actually show a tolerance to food which is the opposite of what you’re trying to test for! For an elimination-based approach to food sensitivities, you must test negative for celiac disease or an IgE wheat allergy. We offer a celiac disease screening test and an IgE allergies test that also tests for the top 8 food allergens.

How should I prepare for this test?

Unlike skin prick tests (also called puncture or scratch tests), you do not need to avoid antihistamines or allergy medication for an IgE blood test. Make sure you are well-hydrated before taking the test so you can provide a sufficient sample. Please also return your sample via delivery carrier on the same day.

What will my results tell me?

Your results will tell you if you have elevated IgE levels for the 68 individual allergens we test for. However, like all IgE allergy tests, it won’t diagnose you with a specific allergy. However, you can use your results and work with a board-certified allergist on a plan of action. This might include creating a food journal, avoidance of allergens and/or in-office oral challenges to confirm an allergy, prescribing epinephrine autoinjectors or offering immunotherapy. IgE allergies can be dangerous and life-threatening, so we urge you to follow-up with an allergist after taking our test.

Who should take this test?

This test will benefit anyone suffering — or suspect they may be suffering — from symptoms relating to indoor, outdoor, animal, insect or food allergens. These symptoms include:

  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Runny nose
  • Congestion
  • Watery or itchy eyes
  • Bloating
  • Scratchy throat upon exposure to an allergen.

An IgE allergy test will help you identify specific allergens that might be causing your symptoms.
