Allergy Season is Around the Corner: Have You Gotten Your Allergy Test?

March 20 marked the official first day of spring, and it finally seems like mother nature is cooperating by bringing warmer weather to Kansas City. With the improved temperatures and influx of sunshine, people are beginning to come out of hibernation and spend more time outdoors. But along with the sunny, warm days, allergy season is also returning to the metro.

If you suffer from spring allergies each year, you might think that there’s little you can do beyond popping a few over-the-counter antihistamines and traveling with facial tissues in tow. But if you’re not really sure about the roots of your allergy problems, you won’t find allergy relief.

Not sure if an allergy test is right for you? Here are some reasons we recommend allergy testing.

Why Get an Allergy Test?

The Process is Quick & Easy

ARCpoint Labs of Overland Park |Have You Gotten Your Allergy Test?There are some misconceptions about allergy testing that might prevent people from wanting to get an allergy test in the first place. When many people hear the words “allergy test,” they think of the allergy skin prick procedure. In this form of allergy test, your skin will be pricked 40+ times by small lancets to test your reactions to many allergens, including mold, pet dander, and various foods. The process can take up to an hour.

This isn’t the allergy test you get at ARCpoint Labs of Overland Park — we offer a fast, painless allergy test. With a simple blood draw, we can test your allergies or sensitivities to a wide variety of inhalants and foods. You’ll be in and out quickly with no appointment or doctor’s orders needed, and you won’t have to wait long for your results, either.

You Can Get Customized Allergy Treatment

Even though the process is fast and easy, you still might think that an allergy test isn’t necessary for you. Even if you feel you can cope with your seasonal allergies, though, if you can avoid the aggravation and illness that accompanies your allergies, why wouldn’t you? With an allergy test, you can pinpoint the exact inhalants or foods that are exacerbating your allergy, allowing you to come up with a custom allergy management plan with your healthcare provider. Once you know what allergens to target, your treatment will be more effective. You wouldn’t take medications for a disease if you weren’t even sure you had it — so why do you blindly treat your allergies?

You Can Combine Seasonal Allergy Testing & Food Allergy Testing

Your allergy test doesn’t have to just be limited to seasonal environmental allergies or food allergies, sensitivities, or intolerances — ARCpoint Labs offers several comprehensive allergy tests that combine both environmental and food allergens. This means you can get a clear picture of your health with just one simple test, allowing you and your healthcare professional to make the most comprehensive treatment plan.
