Goat Milk Allergy Blood Test


Test Code: 602526
Specimen Type: Blood

Description:

Goat Milk Allergy Blood Test

The Goat's Milk Allergy blood test measures IgE Antibodies to look for allergic reactions to proteins found in goat milk.  Most people who are allergic to cow's milk will also be allergic to other types of milk including goat.  However, there are rarer cases where a person will have an allergic reaction to goat milk but be able to tolerate other types of milk.  People with a goat milk allergy will likely be unable to consume products made from goat milk including cheese, yogurt, and ice cream.

Allergy symptoms can develop anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours after ingestion.  Common allergy symptoms include rash, hives, itching, cough, wheezing, tightening of the throat, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, and lightheadedness.  People with a severe allergy may experience anaphylaxis which can be fatal.   

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.

Goat milk allergy testing is typically ordered when a person experiences allergy symptoms within 48 hours of consuming products made from goat's milk.  For more options, please see our allergy testing menu.

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.
