Ragweed Related Allergy Test

This test panel is used to determine if someone may have an allergy to certain types of fruit that are related to ragweed.  The test looks for IgE antibodies which indicate an allergic reaction.  People who are allergic to ragweed may also find that they have an allergy to certain types of fruit that contain a similar protein to the pollen in ragweed.  This type of food allergy is very common and can cause symptoms such as itching, burning, or stinging in the mouth and throat after eating certain fruits.  Severe allergies may cause anaphylaxis which can cause difficulty breathing and may be life-threatening.

This allergy test includes:

  • Ragweed (common/short)
  • Banana
  • Cantaloupe
  • Honeydew Melon
  • Watermelon

Additional allergy tests including those for different types of ragweed and other food allergies can be found in 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.
