Understanding Allergy, Individual Marker, SESAME

What is Allergy, Individual Marker, SESAME?

Allergy, Individual Marker, Sesame is used to test whether you have an allergy to sesame seeds or oil. The doctor usually performs a skin test with possible food allergens or prescribes a blood test. Oleosins are the proteins responsible for sesame allergy. Increased levels of antibodies (total IgE) in the blood confirm the allergic reaction.

People experience mild to severe allergic symptoms after consuming sesame. These symptoms include red skin rashes (hives), tongue swelling, tightening of the throat, wheezing, going pale, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal discomfort and pain.

Mild symptoms are usually treated with oral medicines. Under severe cases of allergies, the doctor may inject a dose of adrenaline. Read the food labels carefully before buying, and try to avoid eating foods or food products containing sesame seeds as well as sesame oil.

* If your total IgE level is increased, it usually indicates that you are suffering from allergy to sesame.
