What is this test?

This test helps to find whether an individual is allergic to red kidney beans or not by detection of specific allergen IgE antibodies in the blood sample.

What are Kidney Beans?

Kidney beans are a good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber and prevent blood sugar levels from rapidly increasing after food consumption. When these beans are combined with rice, it provides high-quality fat-free proteins. Kidney beans decrease the risk of developing heart disease by supplying magnesium and folate. These beans should be pre-soaked and heated for 10 minutes before eating because they contain high amounts of phytohemagglutinin. So these beans are more toxic than most of the other beans and may cause nausea, vomiting, headache, disorientation in some of the individuals.

Antibodies are produced when any foreign substance or virus or bacteria enters into the body. Some time immune system detects our own body cell or tissue as a foreign substance and tries to kill or destroy it by producing antibodies.

Antibodies are in Y shaped and are of 5 sub-types. They are IgG, IgM, IgA, IgD, IgE. IgG provides long-term protection as it presents in the circulation for long period after the presence of an antigen. IgM is involved in the ABO blood group antigens on the red blood cells (RBC’s) surface. IgM also enhances the ingestion of cells by phagocytosis. IgA is also the first defense for intestine, lungs, and nose. They bind antigens to the microbes before they invade tissues and keeps antigens in secretion and when secretion is expelled, antigens are also expelled. IgD helps in the induction of antibody production and presents on the surface of B-cells. IgE binds to the basophils and mast cells.
