Red Cedar Allergy Blood Test

Juniperus Virginiana


Test Code: 605616
Specimen Type: Blood

Description:

Red Cedar Allergy Blood Test

This test is used to measure a person's allergic reaction to Red Cedar.  Red Cedar is a common name for Juniperus Virginiana, also known as Red Junipers.  Red Cedar trees are native to eastern areas of the United States and Canada.  Red Cedars release their pollen in the early spring.  People with an allergy to the pollen will often experience symptoms that include red eyes, runny nose, itching, sneezing, fatigue, and sore throat.  The severity of the symptoms will depend on how strong of an allergic reaction a person has.

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.  

This test can be ordered by anyone who experiences allergy symptoms in areas where red cedars are prevalent.  Please see our Allergy Testing Category for more options. 

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.
