Curry Allergy Blood Test


Test Code: 602819
Specimen Type: Blood

Description:

Curry Allergy Blood Test

This test measures a person's allergic reaction to curry powder.  Curry powder is a mix of spices that typically includes turmeric, chili powder, coriander, cumin, ginger, and pepper.  The blend of spices will sometimes vary.  Curry is prevalent in Indian cuisine but it can be used in recipes from a variety of regions.  Spice allergies are rare but do affect some people.  If you are allergic to curry, it is important to check ingredients to ensure you are consuming anything that may put your health at risk.  Allergy symptoms can develop anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours after ingestion.  Common symptoms include tingling in the mouth, hives, itching, rash, swelling of the lips, tongue, or throat, difficulty breathing, flushed skin, diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting.  A severe allergic reaction can sometimes cause anaphylaxis which may be life-threatening. 

Food allergies are caused by a reaction in the body's immune system.  The body identifies certain substances as harmful and produces IgE antibodies against them.  These antibodies trigger the release of histamine which causes the symptoms of an allergic reaction.  The severity of the allergy will vary from one person to the next.  Blood allergy testing provides numerical results for IgE antibody levels to help determine how severe a reaction a person will have.  Positive allergy test results should be discussed with a person's doctor to determine the appropriate follow-up.

Curry allergy testing is typically ordered when a person experiences symptoms of an allergic reaction after eating something containing curry powder.  For more testing options, please see our Allergy Testing Category

Results for this test typically take 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.
