Cardiology Questions? Ask a Cardiologist for Answers ASAP.
Good morning, I am Dr Ruff. What is your question please?
Thanks. Unfortunately you wouldn’t be able to for an allergy. If there was a infection thought to be secondary to a transfusion then it may be possible. But given it is screened for this first now, then the process is anonymised.
Does this answer your question?
Thanks. So yes, it is theoretically possible to develop a new allergy following a transfused blood product. You would expect signs within a few months if you were exposed to that particular allergen. A blood test to check your IgE and Rast levels are useful at assessing this. Your GP can request these.
