Importance of Allergy Testing

Knowing your allergies has many benefits. It will help you and your clinician create a unique prevention plan that reduces your exposure to harmful allergens and it will suggest treatment options that are most suitable for you.

did you know...
50% of people with cardiovascular diseases have normal cholesterol

40%

Of children with food allergies, over 40% have experienced a severe allergic reaction

Allergic to presence of insects

Did you know that you can be allergic to even the presence of insects like cockroaches and dust mites? Even after they die, dust mites can survive all year in a warm, humid house and cause allergic reactions

Benefit to testing early

Identify your allergies early to reduce exposure to triggers, protect yourself from potential severe reactions and determine if targeted treatment can help reduce your risk.

Periodically measuring your IgE levels will also allow you to monitor the effectiveness of your immunotherapy treatment

recognizing the symptoms

You may have allergies if you have experienced symptoms involving your skin, respiratory and digestive system such as:

Total IgE

The overall quantity of IgE antibodies in the blood helps screen and detect allergic diseases. This is helpful if you have periodic or persistent symptoms, particularly if you're not sure what the exact trigger is.

Allergen-specific IgE

Allergen-specific IgE tests measure your antibody response to individual substances. There are a broad spectrum of allergens that can trigger a reaction and can be tested for. Most of these can be categorized into food (peanuts, shrimp, etc.) vs inhalants (dust mite, weeds, etc.)

An elevated specific-IgE can help you understand which particular foods or environments you may need to reduce your exposure to and discover if targeted treatment options are available to improve your condition.

Celiac Disease Screening Test

The most comprehensive at-home test for celiac disease

Celiac Disease Monitoring Test

The imaware™ Cardiovascular Health Journey

Begin by establishing your baseline...

Step 1

Start your cardiovascular health journey by establishing a baseline of a broad spectrum of cardiovascular related biomarkers. This will help monitor your progress moving forward and adapt accordingly.

Cardiovascular Health Test

Our test will review your detailed cholesterol profile, inflammation and a prediabetes/diabetes screen

The imaware™ testing flow for people with diabetes or family history

First, understand if you have diabetes or prediabetes

Step 1

Baseline your risk by measuring two important measures related to diabetes. When detected earlier, people with prediabetes can stop the onset of diabetes.

Prediabetes/Diabetes Test

The only at-home test to measure both hemoglobin A1c (Hb-A1c) and fasting glucose together.

Next, identify hidden genetic risks

Step 2

40% of people have the Haptoglobin (Hp2) 2-2 gene variant, and those with diabetes are at a 500% increased risk of heart attack or stroke

Haptoglobin Genetic Test

The only at-home test to validate your haptoglobin genotype for assessing cardiovascular risk

Next, identify critical hidden risks...

Review your Genetic Risk

1 in 5 people globally have inherited high Lp(a) and most don't know they're at 2 - 4x higher risk of cardiovascular disease, yet this isn't tested in traditional cholesterol panels

Lipoprotein(a) Test

Our Lp(a) test will help determine the lipid-based cardiovascular risk for yourself and your loved ones

Understand your Inflammation Risk

50% of people with heart attacks have normal cholesterol.  Lp-PLA2 (or PLAC) is an independent risk factor and a better measure of plaque rupture than hs-CRP

Lp-PLA2 (PLAC) Test

Our PLAC test can help identify hidden inflammation risk in people over the age of 45

How Do We Accurately Test?

biomarkers and our screening method

We use a small volume blood sample to test for total IgE and a profile of 40 specific respiratory allergens and 28 food allergens

imaware™ tests have been validated for accuracy against existing testing methods.

We pride ourselves in creating an easy to understand report that you can feel comfortable sharing with your healthcare professional to engage them sooner."

AT-HOME MONITORING

Monitoring Celiac Disease After Diagnosis

After diagnosis, it is recommended for patients to be monitored to ensure that their lifestyle and dietary changes are in fact improving their condition.

biomarkers and our monitoring method

We utilize the same screening biomarkers to track your progression. We then plot this onto an easy to read graph so you can ensure you're heading towards healing.

engaging your health professional sooner

The results of our monitoring test should be shared with your healthcare provider to ensure that additional evaluation or testing is not required.

Tracking the reduction of celiac disease specific biomarkers over time
our mission

Working to help keep you healthier

Many patients presenting with allergy-like symptoms are incorrectly diagnosed with allergies without specific IgE testing, causing incorrect treatment plans. Allergy testing is important to reduce these misdiagnoses. We're working closely with research teams to validate these links and to help provide consumers more education and awareness.
