Chenopodium is a genus of about 150 species of flowering plants, known as Goosefoots. It contains several plants of minor to moderate importance as food crops including Quinoa, Fat Hen, Good King Henry and Epazote. Goosefoots are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species. In the APG II system (2003) it is placed in the family Amaranthaceae, but earlier, for example in the Cronquist system (1981), it was placed in the family Chenopodiaceae. Goosefoot weeds flower throughout the summer, but predominantly in the autumn, producing abundant pollen. A full-grown plant can give off as many as 20,000 pollen grains. Traditional allergy tests utilize the Skin Prick method (also known as a Puncture or Scratch test) to determine whether an allergic reaction will occur by inserting possible triggers into your skin using a needle prick. If you are allergic to the substance, you are forced to suffer through your body's reaction to the allergen.
No special preparation is needed for Allergy Goose Foot. Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing Allergy Goose Foot. Your doctor depending on your condition will give specific instructions.
