In the United States, almost 50 million Americans have nasal allergies, and as many as 200 die from food allergies a year. Some of these deaths can be attributed to individuals having serious life-threatening allergies without knowing. Right now, medical professional have an allergy test, which involves pricking the patient and testing to see if they have an allergic reaction.The current allergy tests are not always accurate and healthcare professionals are looking for something better. Erik Wambre, an immunology researcher at Seattle's Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason, may have found it. Here is what we know about this new allergy test:

  • detect so-called type 2 helper T-cells (TH2) that reveal if a person has an allergy
  • found a kind of "signature" on the cells that cause a reaction to common allergens such as peanut, grass pollen, mold, cat dander, tree pollen and dust mites
  •  potentially be useful for diagnosis and treatment but not prevention

It is uncertain if this test will be available to the public in the near future, but it is good to still be hopeful. If you think you may be allergic to a certain substance, make sure to contact your medical professional as soon as possible.

Remember, do not ignore symptoms of allergies because you never know just how allergic you are.
