Description:

Dairy Allergy Intolerance Test

The Dairy Allergy Panel measures IgE Antibodies to determine allergic reaction to several common dairy products as well as the primary component proteins of milk.  A person may have more or less of a tolerance for certain types of dairy products depending on which parts of milk they are allergic to and the severity of their allergy. 

This panel includes

  • Cow's Milk
  • Cheddar Cheese
  • Blue Cheese (Mold Type)
  • Casein
  • alpha-lactalbumin
  • beta-lactoglobulin

Casein makes up the majority of milk curd proteins.  The remaining whey contains several proteins with a-lactalbumin and b-lactoglobulin being the most prevalent.   A person can be allergic one or more of the proteins in milk although people with an allergy to one protein tend to be allergic to others as well.  Some people may also be allergic to the mold in certain types of cheese such as blue cheese.  Measuring allergic reaction to several types of dairy as well as different components of milk can help a person work with their doctor to determine which type of diet changes will be most effective. 

Request A Test also offers a less comprehensive Milk Allergy test which only measures reaction to the 3 primary proteins in milk. 

Turnaround for this test is typically 4-6 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.
