allergy test age range

It is commonly thought that allergies only occur in children or that they are developed at birth. Yes, although allergies are typically associated with children, there has been a sharp increase in adults reporting allergies. According to Science Daily almost half of food allergies in adults are now appearing in adulthood. There are many ways you can cope with allergies and manage them, but you cannot get rid of them. However, an allergy test is still a vital part of ensuring that you can live a happier and healthier life. 

You’re never too old for an allergy test

So, do not think you have got away with it just because you have escaped childhood without any allergies. That annoying allergy known as hay fever which you have seen many of your friends struggle with may still arise at any point and so it is important you take an allergy test to find out. Creating a happier and healthier you, an allergy test can help to put your mind at rest, as you seek to explore what your body can tolerate and what it cannot. Doesn’t that sound good?

The Rise is Here

According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, there has been a sharp increase in reported allergies amongst both kids and adults. Surprisingly (to some), the most common allergy to adults is Shellfish. With over 3.6% of the population suffering from a Shellfish allergy, this has been a 44% increase over the 2.5% found in a 2004 study.
