Tests

Conventionally, a diagnosis of allergic or autoimmune disease relies on the case history and a physical examination. However, adding diagnostic testing to aid in a differential diagnosis has been shown to increase confidence in diagnosis.1,2

Diagnostic testing can also help to improve the patient’s quality of life and productivity, reduce costs associated with absenteeism, optimize use of medication, in addition to decreasing unscheduled healthcare visits.3,4

Diagnostic tests give reliable results that support healthcare professionals in providing optimal patient management.

Adding diagnostic testing to aid in a differential diagnosis has been shown to increase confidence in diagnosis to 90%.1,2

Testing

Testing to Support Allergy and Autoimmunity Disease Diagnosis

When a patient’s symptoms and clinical presentation offers a wide range of diagnostic possibilities, such as an IgE-mediated allergy or an autoimmune disease, test results can be a valuable tool in helping confirm the diagnosis. Together with the case history, serological testing can help you bring clarity to an uncertain diagnosis and provide clear results that are easy to interpret and explain to patients.
