Sometimes the larger of the sardines (20-30 cm) are called pilchards and the smaller (13-16 cm), sardines. Distribution is in the Atlantic and Mediterranean. The catch of sardines has become increasingly important, especially to Spain, Portugal, France and Morocco, where the fish is processed into oil. This IgE allergy test uses a blood sample to determine if you are allergic to five common Fish allergens: Halibut, Mackerel, Salmon, Trout, Tuna. More than half of all people who are allergic to one kind of finned fish are allergic to other fish. Finned fish allergies are among the most common food allergies. In the case of fish allergies, the body sees certain proteins in the scales or meat of fish as a toxin, rather than a food. Most allergic reactions to fish cause hives, nausea, diarrhea, abdominal discomfort, asthma, and (less commonly) anaphylaxis. 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 Sardine Fish Fluorescence Assay. Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing Allergy Sardine Fish Fluorescence Assay. Your doctor depending on your condition will give specific instructions.
