Hello early

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com

Allergy testing is a series of tests conducted by specialists to determine the triggers for allergies. What you want to know is a substance that triggers the body's immune reaction or allergens. There are three ways of allergic testing, ranging from blood tests, skin tests, to food allergens that trigger foods.

The allergy test you are undergoing is most likely a specific IgE examination called the RAST (Radioallergosorbent test). The RAST results themselves are reported in the range CLASS 0 to CLASS 6 with CLASS 0 indicating there is no allergic reaction to certain allergens, while CLASS 6 indicates a very high possibility of allergic reaction to certain allergens. CLASS 5 indicates that you also have a very high possibility of allergic reaction to certain allergens (not all allergens, but certain allergens that are written have CLASS 5). For example on your results it says Egg white Class 0, meaning you will not experience allergies when eating egg whites, while if it says Peanut Class 5, it means that you will most likely experience an allergic reaction when consuming peanuts. Basically an allergic reaction is a reaction of the body's immune system excessive against a certain allergen substance. The most recommended therapy for this condition is to avoid allergens. For example your RAST results show CLASS 5 in beans, almonds, shrimp, then you can avoid consuming these foods. If you accidentally eat something that has allergen content and you start experiencing an allergic reaction, then you can be treated with antihistamines, corticosteroids, or if the allergic reaction is very severe to cause anaphylactic reactions, epinephrine injections can be given.

It is better to ensure that you can ask directly by the doctor who advises you to do this screening.

Thus the info I can give

hopefully can help you

thank you
