Product Description

Test if you suffer from milk protein allergy

Allergies to cow's milk are one of the most common food allergies. Milk and milk-based proteins are found in many different foods, and testing, if you are allergic, is one of the first steps to improving your quality of life. With Quicktest Milk Allergy Test, you can quickly and easily find out if you are allergic to cow's milk protein. The test measures elevated levels of IgE allergy antibodies to cow's milk protein, which is a reliable indication of milk allergy. However, it is important that you have previously experienced symptoms or currently have symptoms for the test to be reliable. Normal levels of IgE cannot rule out the possibility of developing allergies in the future. Some individuals may have elevated levels of specific IgE without experiencing symptoms of milk protein allergy. In some cases, minor discomfort may be experienced, while in others, more severe discomfort may be experienced. Proactive antibodies, such as IgG, may also affect various symptoms, which is individual.

Note: Quicktest milk allergy test does not make a diagnosis; it is used to provide an indication. Always consult a doctor for further clinical investigation and diagnosis.

Symptoms of cow's milk allergy

Cow's milk allergy means that you are allergic to one or more proteins found in milk. Allergy to cow's milk can present with a variety of symptoms, and it is common to have several symptoms simultaneously. Some common symptoms of milk allergy include stomach pain, diarrhoea, vomiting, blood in stool, poor weight gain, loss of appetite, swollen lips and face, hives, and eczema. Most people with cow's milk allergy have several different symptoms at the same time in connection with a reaction.

Note that the manual accompanying this test has a typographical error in the Swedish section. Under 'Basic Information About This Self-Test', there is a text about Cat, Mite, and Grass Pollen Test. A correct version of the manual is available under the Manual tab below.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between milk allergy and lactose intolerance?

In simplified terms, milk allergy (also called cow's milk allergy, cow's milk protein allergy, etc.) is caused by the body's immune system reacting to proteins in milk products. Lactose intolerance is caused by the inability of the intestine to break down milk sugar (also called lactose). Lactose intolerance is not an allergy; it is an enzyme deficiency.

Who can have or develop a milk allergy?

Milk allergy is common in early childhood, but it can also affect older children and adults. Many people have milk allergies without knowing it.

Can I test my child for milk allergy?

The Quicktest Milk Protein Allergy has no age limit, but a self-test is not suitable for use in children under 3 years of age. This is not due to reliability but to the procedure of how blood collection is done. If your child is under 3 years old, you should contact healthcare.

How do you recognize milk allergy?

It varies from person to person; some can consume small amounts of milk without noticeable reactions, while others may need intensive care in the hospital after the same milk intake. Common symptoms of milk allergy include stomach pain, diarrhoea, headache, itching, eczema, swollen lips and face, shortness of breath, and vomiting. However, the most common symptom is generally poor digestion.

Is there any treatment for milk protein allergy?

No, the only treatment is to eliminate milk and foods that contain milk.

Does the test diagnose milk protein allergy?

The Quicktest Milk Protein Allergy self-test has shown good comparison results with laboratory tests. However, this self-test should not be used for diagnosis but should be used for a preliminary indication. A licensed physician should always make the diagnosis.

Manual
The Doctor Says...

Allergies are becoming increasingly common, the cause of which is disputed, but is likely influenced by the environment, lifestyle, and modern diet. Children with many siblings have also been shown to reduce the risk of developing certain allergies. Performing a so-called "skin prick test" is done by an allergist, and is normally only carried out in the event of an allergic reaction or if a parent has a confirmed allergy. A self-test can provide an indication of whether there is a specific allergy to, for example, milk proteins.

I've had a bad/sensitive stomach since my teens, though I've never linked it to milk or dairy products. It hasn't really been anything serious, not that I've had to "madly rush" to the toilet - it's mostly been a discomfort in the stomach for a while after the morning coffee with milk or after a meal containing milk/cream. However, the toilet has become a place where I have spent some time, I will admit. But after a few years from when the problems came as a teenager, it finally became something you get used to, but lately it has become somewhat worse. Have taken it up with the health centre etc but it was more or less useless... have tried to exclude various things from the diet, everything from certain spices, carbohydrates, too fatty food, tested periodic fasting, excluded gluten etc etc... Finally did your milk allergy test, mostly because I was a little curious, since I have tried to exclude most things, I was a little skeptical but it showed positive! Was surprised to say the least, was both happy and a little "offended". Thought that the test might have been wrong or that I did something wrong when testing, was clearly surprised but decided to completely exclude milk and already the next day there was no visit to the toilet after the morning coffee, the stomach was clearly better. I thought it must be a one-time thing... but now it has been about 2 weeks and my stomach feels so... stable! In addition, I have lost some weight, feel less swollen and "plump" both on the stomach and in the face. No idea if it has to do with the milk or if I am imagining things. But FINALLY it feels like I control my stomach, it is not the one that controls me! So I can really recommend testing if there is any suspicion of sensitivity to dairy products. Because if the problems with the stomach are due to regular milk, this is something that will be noticed almost immediately.
