The importance of identifying specific allergens when possible is illustrated by the little known house dust mite. An 8 legged microscopic creature, present by the millions in all our homes, besides being a primary allergen, may be a factor in 50-80% of asthmatic conditions. A typical mattress will contain up to 10 million dust mites. Identifying this specific allergen would allow an individual to mitigate causative factors in a non-pharmaceutical manner.

Sample Collection Procedure

The sample collection is easy to perform in the privacy of your home, and the kit contains detailed instructions. Using our painless lancet, your finger tip is pricked, and a few drops of blood collected into the supplied mini-container. The sample is sent to us in our preaddressed mailer, and your results are available in 10-14 days.

Principle of the Test

An allergy, or allergic reaction, is the result of an individual’s overactive immune system, reacting to usually harmless external substances. The substances that cause allergic reactions are known as allergens. The body interprets the specific allergen as a harmful invader and the immune system reacts by forming antibodies to attack it. Individuals with allergies produce a specific antibody type called Immunoglobulin E, or IgE. When allergens first contact the body of a person with allergies, allergen-specific IgE antibodies are produced. Each type of IgE has a specific interlock code for one type of allergen only. That is why some individuals are allergic to cats and grass pollen only (they have only the IgE antibodies specific to cat and grass pollen) and others seem to be allergic to everything. Therefore, a person with antibodies to a specific allergen is commonly referred to as being “allergic” to that allergen. When a person with allergies comes in contact with an allergen, his or her body will show symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as swelling of tissues, sneezing, wheezing, coughing, a runny nose, itchy eyes, and other reactions. Depending on the overall health of the individual and the presence of complicating health conditions like asthma, allergic reactions can range from mild discomfort to life threatening.

See a typical Accu-Allergy10 result analysis below:

Allergen IU/mL Class Allergic Response
Timothy Grass 0.82 0 Negative
Bermuda Grass 0.37 1 Very Low
Cedar < 0.35 0 Negative
Ragweed < 0.35 0 Negative
Alternaria (Mold) 71.17 5 High
Milk 48.63 4 High
Egg White < 0.35 0 Negative
Wheat < 0.35 0 Negative
Cat < 0.35 0 Negative
Housedust Mite 0.57 1 Very Low

Conclusion: You have a very high probability of an allergic reaction to Alternaria (Mold) and Milk. Consult your Physician as needed.

Some allergiescan be extremely complex. The wheat allergy test that we perform is actually a gluten allergy test because gluten intolerance affects about 15% of the population.

This intolerance is linked to various genetic factors and Viaguard’s Allergy Test identifies the presence of linked antigen/antibodies.

The role of genetics in this type of intolerance is based on the simple fact that many of our igestive capabilities have genetically evolved over 2.5 million years but humans have only been consuming cultivated cereal crops for only about 10, 000 years.

How / When Allergies Develop

An individual’s vulnerability to allergies is dependent on multiple genetic and environmental factors.

A protei found in the cells of infants provides a significant clue as to the degree of future vulnerability an individual will have to certain allergies. The protein that provides the answer is called protein Kinase C zeta, and is found at low levels where there is a high probability of the development of a range of allergies.

The goodnews is that it appears that supplemental intake of omega-3 fish oils in the diet of the mother during gestation and any subsequent nursing period stimulateproduction of protein Kinase C zeta, sharply increasing the resistance of the newborn to the development of allergies which may persist through an entire lifetime.
