Please state if there are any restrictions for percutaneous skin testing for foods (seafood) in a 42 year old female who is well controlled on Enalapril for hypertention. Initial immunocap Rast testing for seafood were negative. Thank you very much.

A:

Thank you for your inquiry.

There is no contraindication to performing percutaneous tests to seafood in a patient taking an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor.

Thank you again for your inquiry and we hope this response is helpful to you.

Sincerely,
Phil Lieberman, M.D.
