Which Test For Me?

Does my clinical history suggest an allergy? Answering a few simple questions in a short questionnaire Should I Test? will help you decide whether or not you should be testing for an allergy.
Do I have symptoms that are commonly associated with an allergy? Common symptoms for both airborne and non-airborne allergies are outlined at Which Test For Me?
Does an Imutest confirm the most likely cause of my allergy? Yes, once you know what it is you’re allergic to, you and your healthcare professional can take steps to manage your allergy.
