Understanding Allergen,Individual - Food Egg Yolk Anda
What is Allergen,Individual - Food Egg Yolk Anda?
Allergen, Individual - Food Egg Yolk Anda is a blood test that helps detect an allergy to egg white. When you consume or come in close contact, the body misinterprets egg yolk as an invader. The immune system releases Immunoglobulin-E (IgE) antibodies to protect the body against the allergy-causing substance (called an allergen), egg yolk. This test measures the total IgE antibodies in the blood and identifies an allergy. The allergic symptoms to egg yolk include rashes, itching, headache, swelling of the lips, tongue, and mouth, nausea, diarrhea, gas, stomach pain, dizziness, and anaphylaxis (very rare). Watchful eating and avoiding foods containing egg yolk is the best way to prevent such an allergy.
