Casein Allergy Test

Milk Protein


Test Code: 602554
Specimen Type: Blood

Description:

Casein Allergy Test

The Casein Allergy Blood Test looks for IgE Antibodies which indicate an allergic intolerance to Casein, a protein found in milk.  Most people with an allergy to milk will begin to show symptoms early in life.  These allergies may subside as a person grows older or continue for the rest of their life.  Allergies can also develop at any time even if a person has never had any previous issues.  People with Casein intolerance will typically display symptoms of an allergic reaction when they consume products containing milk. Common symptoms include swollen lips, tongue, face or throat, hives or a rash, runny nose, sneezing, itchy eyes, coughing or wheezing.  People with a severe allergy may experience anaphylaxis which causes difficulty breathing, chest pain or swelling in the mouth or throat.  These reactions can be life-threatening if not treated quickly.

The Casein Intolerance Allergy Test can be ordered at any time if someone suspects they are allergic to milk or dairy products.  For more testing options, please see our Allergy Testing Category.

Turnaround for this test is typically 3-5 business days.   

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
