The My Allergy Test is mailed right to your door and self-administered at home. It tests your body's response to the ten most common allergens: eggs, milk, wheat, mold, dust mites, Bermuda grass, Timothy grass, cedar, ragweed and cats.
When my kit arrived, it contained instructions, identification labels, a mailing envelope and all the supplies needed to take a small blood sample.
I affixed identification labels as instructed and then put my sample in the included specimen bag.
The final step was to mail my sample off in the postage-paid envelope. I dropped it off at the post office on May 1 and received my test results by email on May 10, so the turnaround time was very prompt. To view my results, I clicked a link in the email and used the PIN number (included in my package) to log in.
Results are very easy to view, and each allergen tested is rated from a negative response all the way to a high response based on the IgE concentration.
If your test returns positive results (mine didn't), you have access to MyAllergyPlan,which helps you take the next step in finding relief. MyAllergyPlan is included in your purchase. At the website, you may also print out your results to share with a health care professional.
MyAllergyTest retails for $49.99. I would say it's a small price to pay if you're concerned about allergy-type symptoms. Getting answers to simple questions can unfortunately be an expensive proposition if you choose the traditional route. In my case, I would had to pay to see my regular physician. Then he would have referred me to a specialist. And then there would be allergy tests to take. The costs quickly ad up! Because of the professional results I received from the MyAllergyTest, I can cross off any major allergies off my list.
Finally, I think it's fantastic that you can test and receive results at home. With six children and homeschooling, scheduling and keeping doctor appointments is usually a stressful undertaking.
You can order MyAllergyTest online or find it at major pharmacies like Walmart and Walgreens. To keep up-to-date with the latest, be sure to follow on Facebook and Twitter.
