Allergen, Individual - Food Green Pepper

The Allergen, Individual - Food Green Pepper test is a diagnostic test used to determine if an individual is allergic to green peppers. Green peppers are a common food ingredient in many cuisines and diets around the world. However, for some individuals, consuming green peppers can trigger an allergic reaction, ranging from mild to severe.

This diagnostic test works by detecting specific Immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies in the blood. When the immune system mistakenly identifies a substance as harmful, such as green pepper proteins, it responds by producing specific IgE antibodies. These antibodies are what healthcare providers look for as an indication of an allergic reaction.
