Avatar m tn If the IgE was high that could be allergy, also sometimes parasites can cause IgE to get higher. But if you dont' have diarrhea or other gastric problems then you probably don't have a parasite. IgG is one of the immunoglobulins that can be high when you are fighting an infection or your immunity (long term and past infections) is good. IgM is short term (current) infection. So, it probably is okay to have a slightly lower IgM and higher IgG.
Avatar m tn Do not waste your money on quackery/dubious tests: "The following procedures are not valid for managing food allergies: Neurological Stress Reduction Therapy (NRST) purports to use a BAX 3000 device to assess and treat allergies and many other conditions with a 'light and sound energy relaxation technique' that supposedly identifies problematic substances and conditions the body not to react negatively to them."

This is through a process known as immunology, more commonly referred to as an allergy shot.You can also discuss this treatment option with the allergist. Hope it helps. Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
Avatar f tn Hi, Yes you could be experiencing re-actions to an unknown allergens.Fresh coats of paint can trigger off allergic re-actions. Are you in contact with either on a day-to-day basis? As in an occupation or living in close proximity-in the vicinity of some-thing associated with either? First, the bad news: For many people, allergy season has become a year-round stint, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI). But there's good news too.
Avatar m tn I am only looking for a second opinion based on facts known about allergy shots. I am not sure if my doctor is worried about hurting me or if I am totally wrong. I seem to benefit more when it was strong enough to trigger a small controllable reaction 4-6 minutes after an injection. 2 hours later when the reaction wore off I felt GREAT! This question is if they are triggering a reaction does that mean that they will not work as well?
Avatar f tn I also had hormones check...all came back in normal range. I started having allergy shots about 2 years ago and have a feeling this may be the cause but I know for sure. Has anyone had any hair changes/loss due to allergen immunology? I have started taking a thyroid supplement and lots of other hair supporting supplements, including bone broth. Would apprceiate any help, or advise. Thanks!
Avatar f tn Numerous labs. Nothing. Biopsy done. Pathology says it points to immunology but they say it is not an immune disorder. We are currently waiting to see Allergy Dr. and Rhuemotology. Although we have moved and changed many things, nothing has helped. He now has no pain relief. He doesn't eat well cause he can't, and is fatigued. I have heard from the Dr.s over and over that they have heard of this but never have seen it. They have seen mouth ulcers but never to this degree.

Avatar f tn s summer I have been struggling a lot more, even laying down in bed with the fan on my feet, despite the rash having disappeared, my feet are still itchy. I went to the doctors about a year ago and was sent to an immunology clinic but they couldn't figure out what it was.
Avatar n tn Might be worth checking in with an allergy/immunology doc to see what your immune levels are.....they can do a simple blood test called Immunoglobulin testing to let you know. Hope that helps.
5468358 tn?1368464832 I saw a neurologist last week, he is sending me for a MRI on my back and neck, and a EMG. They are calling me the mystery women because they don’t why my Eosinophils went up so high. I know Eosinophils in rare cases can cause tingling and numbness from nerve damage, the neurologist told me I might have more tingling and numbness as I come down on the prednisone. If I do, he told me to stright to the ER. I am still on 20Mg until I go back for blood work to insure my eosinophils are still down.
