Allergen, Individual - Food Sardine Test, Price, Normal Range | Sprint Diagnostics Hyderabad

Sardines are small, oily fish that are packed with nutrients, including omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. They are often consumed for their potential health benefits. However, like other fish, sardines can cause allergic reactions in some individuals. The Allergen, Individual - Food Sardine test is designed to detect if a person has an allergy to sardines.

This diagnostic test measures the levels of specific antibodies in the blood that might be produced in response to proteins found in sardines. When a person is allergic to sardines, their immune system mistakenly identifies proteins in the fish as harmful, leading to the production of antibodies and causing allergic reactions.
