If you have ever thought about allergy testing and finding out which allergy test would be best for you then you have arrived at the right place. If you have just got your results back from your allergy test and are now a bit concerned, don’t worry, our expert team help you through the whole process. If some of the foods below were listed on your report, or if you think that you might need allergy testing to find out, then talk to us, as we are always here to help. Following on from last week, below are some of the scariest food allergens that we have come across:


Having an allergy to milk can cause wheezing, hives and even diarrhoea. In the worst case scenario, a milk allergy can cause anaphylaxis, which leads to a life-threatening reaction. The only way that you can prevent milk allergy symptoms is to avoid milk, and then replace it with another source of calcium, as it is important that you have calcium in your diet.


If your allergy test has indicated that you may have a soy allergy, then soy is a food that you definitely need to avoid. According to various research, a lot of children end up growing out of a soy allergy, but some have to avoid soya forever. If you think that allergy testing could help you to manage your allergy symptoms, then Test Your Intolerance should be able to help you with an allergy test.


Shellfish like shrimp, crab, and even lobster can often cause allergic reactions which can only cause harm to an individual. Like other foods, having a shellfish allergy can lead to symptoms like hives, anaphylaxis (!) and other symptoms like runny noses. If you suspect that you are suffering from an allergy to shellfish, we would encourage you to speak to your GP, but allergy testing can also help you. Your GP should suggest to you that you carry an epinephrine injector (epi-pen) around at all times (and that someone near you knows how to use it!).
