Description:

Corn Allergy Test

The Corn Allergy Test looks for IgE Antibodies which indicate an allergic reaction to corn.  Corn allergy is less common than other types of food allergies.  Those who have corn allergies can find it difficult to avoid products containing corn since many types of processed foods include ingredients such as cornmeal, corn oil and corn syrup.  Even non-food products such as soap, toothpaste, shampoo, vitamins, paint and makeup may be made with corn products.  People who are allergic may experience a variety of symptoms after consuming products containing corn.  These symptoms can include skin rash or hives, sneezing, runny nose, difficulty breathing, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and in severe cases, anaphylaxis, which can be life-threatening.     

The corn allergy test can be ordered any time when someone suspects they have an allergy.  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.
