The Benefits of Home Allergy Testing Kits
As we head in to autumn not many people know that you can still suffer from pollens. It is during this time of year that I can’t seem to stop sneezing. It is related to tree pollen.
With the world in the middle of a global pandemic having allergies means that your immune system is compromised. If you don’t know what your allergy is then even a lovely walk in the countryside, touching something or eating something could cause symptoms such as itchiness, swelling, difficultly breathing, vomiting, hives or other sever symptoms.
The best thing you can do for yourself is to have an allergy test. Getting one at the moment may be extremely difficult as some of us are in lockdown. That is where a home allergy testing kit from Klarify comes in. It tests for many different types of allergies including pet, pollen, insect stings, moulds, yeast, foods and others such as latex which you may not have thought about. That is a total of 294 allergens that you can be tested for.
Allergy testing is performed on the skin or through blood testing. For the home allergy testing kit you will receive everything you need. You simply order the kit, it arrives with full instructions to collect a small blood sample, you send it off to the lab for analysis and within 2 weeks you have a very detailed allergen report. You can read more on the blood testing process from Klarify here. It really is a simple process.
Below I’ve listed just some of the benefits of allergy testing.
- Allergy testing is a precise method for finding out which allergens are causing your allergic reactions.
- Once you know which substances you are allergic to, you can stop using them or take action to alleviate the allergy symptoms.
- By knowing what allergens causes your body to overreact, you can avoid your allergy triggers yourself and deal with these immediately.
Being able to control your allergies is important so that your immune system isn’t compromised but also it allows you to take action rather than your allergies controlling you.
Knowing what allergens are causing you trouble will allow you to develop an active treatment plan and allow you to get on with your life knowing you have them under control.
