Imutest Milk - milk allergy test
The Imutest Milk test is an easy-to-use aid in the diagnosis of increased sensitivity to milk allergens. It helps confirm whether allergy symptoms are caused by a true allergic reaction.
Over 2 million people in the Czech Republic suffer from some form of allergy. An allergy is an inappropriate reaction of the immune system to harmless substances in the environment. The body feels threatened by contact with the allergen and the immune system releases a substance, histamine, to defend itself, but this causes allergic symptoms. The allergen can be virtually any foreign substance, the most common being pollen.
The number of allergy sufferers is constantly increasing. At least 25% of the population in developed countries is allergic to some substance - and this number is steadily rising! New research shows that the proportion of allergic children is even higher.
Some people, even those who are affected, tend to underestimate the severity of their allergy. It has been shown that allergic rhinitis sufferers are 3.5 times more likely to develop asthma than the general population. In addition, inadequate treatment of allergies can cause complications in the form of asthma, loss of taste, smell or sinusitis.
The most common manifestations of allergic diseases are sneezing, itchy and stuffy nose (hay fever), itchy and red eyes (conjunctivitis), eczema, hives, coughing, shortness of breath, whistling (asthma).
Milk in the human diet serves primarily as a source of high quality protein, milk fat and calcium. An allergy to cow's milk protein is defined as an exaggerated reaction of the immune system to the protein (or proteins) in cow's milk. It is the most common allergy in children under 3 years of age. It is the only one that can resolve over a period of years, and in adulthood a person who suffered from ABKM in childhood can tolerate milk. The most common allergen is beta-lactoglobulin. Symptoms, by an IgE-mediated immunological mechanism, occur within 2 hours, usually within 10-20 minutes after ingestion, and tend to be cutaneous, affecting the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts. Cutaneous symptoms include itching, redness, urticaria, swelling, and rapid onset of atopic eczema. Digestive disorders include vomiting, abdominal and colicky pain, and diarrhea. Respiratory symptoms include acute rhinitis, acute conjunctivitis, narrowing of the larynx, and acute bronchoconstriction.
