Allergies, respiratory infections, and asthma often present with similar symptoms, making them difficult to differentiate. Being able to rule in or rule out allergies as the cause of your patients’ symptoms can help inform better treatment decisions and improve patient outcomes.
From individual allergen tests and component testing to regional environmental allergy test panels, Quest offers a comprehensive range of ImmunoCAP® IgE blood allergy tests to meet the full spectrum of patient needs.
Allergies affect tens of millions of adults and children in the United States. According to the CDC, over 19 million adults and over 5 million children in the US suffer from seasonal allergies (hay fever), and over 4.5 million children have food allergies.1
Allergy testing can help your patient know what exposures to avoid, and just as important, what exposures are safe. The ImmunoCAP IgE blood test from Quest Diagnostics makes it possible to easily identify allergen-specific triggers, for improved patient management and outcomes.
Research shows that allergy is a risk factor for asthma,2 as exposure to allergens can increase asthma symptoms and trigger attacks. The CDC recommends allergy testing for patients with asthma to help close gaps in care and mitigate risk for other respiratory illnesses.3
Identifying your patients’ allergy triggers with ImmunoCAP supports better asthma management and control for improved health outcomes and fewer office visits and hospitalizations for your patients.
