Our expert says:
RAST testing for allergies is as accurate as skin prick testing. They both are about 80% accurate for diagnosing allergies. Their negative predictive value is most accurate, meaning a negative RAST or skin test is likely to be correct. Whereas some mildly positive allergy tests may not be accurate and occur in non-allergic individuals.
