Self-diagnostic allergy kits now available

1 in 5 people suffer from allergies and this has stretched medical resources in an attempt to try to diagnose them all. A self-diagnostic allergy kit has been developed by Clinical Diagnostic Chemicals which is believed to be as accurate as blood test by a doctor. It involves using a small sample of the person's blood to detect allergy antibodies (IgE levels). The results are available in 30 minutes. The kit is available in pharmacies and some supermarkets and costs about 9.99 pounds.
