What is an inhalants sensitivity test?
An inhalants sensitivity test measures the subtle response of body’s IgG antibodies to common airborne irritants in the air around us. For example, cat or dog dander, pollen, mold and so on.
Why measure inhalants sensitivity?
Once you find out that your body is producing immunoglobulin G (IgG) protein antibodies in response to certain inhalants, you can reduce or eliminate them from your surrounding. The sensitivity is measured on scale of 0 to 4 (zero means no sensitivity and 4 means high sensitivity).
Common symptoms of inhalants sensitivity include sneezing, unease, nausea, headache, mood swing, and fatigue. One common example is sensitivity to cat or dog dander.
Testing for inhalants sensitivity can help improve quality of life by eliminating these items from the surrounding. The simplicity of test is that once your results are received, you can eliminate suspect items to confirm how they have been affecting you.

For testing your samples, we have partnered with CLIA-certified labs that are used by physicians across the US. These labs are regulated by the states, as well as Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Majority of the tests from these labs are FDA approved to ensure they meet the proper regulatory requirements. Additionally, the College of American Pathologists (CAP) requires inter-laboratory tests to ensure the ranges established by each lab do not drift or are not out of acceptable ranges. This is done by regularly testing reference samples between different labs. Finally, the labs test thousands of sample for different age groups and health conditions, and have well established reference data to compare your results against this large pool.
