How is it done?
Through a traditional blood sample, taken by healthcare professionals, which is then sent to the Immunology Department, processed and determined.
There is no need for patients to fast or refrain from taking allergy medications such as antihistamines before their blood samples are taken.
Dizziness or bruising after the blood has been taken.
