Fish Allergy Test

The Fish Allergy Test looks for allergic reactions to various types of fish.  Allergic reactions to fish can develop at any time in a person's life even if they have had no prior problems.  Allergy symptoms usually develop shortly after eating and can include abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, difficulty breathing, itching and hives.  In severe cases, a person may develop anaphylaxis which can include swelling of the throat, a severe drop in blood pressure and unconsciousness.  This test looks for IgE antibodies and provides numerical results. 

This panel includes:

  • Codfish
  • Halibut
  • Mackerel
  • Walleye
  • Pike
  • Salmon
  • Trout
  • Tuna

The Fish Allergy Test can be ordered by anyone to help determine if they are allergic.  For more testing options, please see our Allergy Testing Category.

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.
