Avatar f tn 05% of the IgG concentration. 7% is high level. “Atopic individuals can have up to 10 times the normal level of IgE in their blood (as do sufferers of hyper-IgE syndrome). However, this may not be a requirement for symptoms to occur as has been seen in asthmatics with normal IgE levels in their blood - recent research has shown that IgE production can occur locally in the nasal mucosa, without the involvement of lymphoid tissue.” Refer: http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar m tn I took two tests. the first one had a HSV2 index of 1.87 and the 2nd HSV2 test had an index of 2.38. But like I asked...when does the body show index readings after exposure. Insn't 1.87 still to high after 5 days. I just heard it takes weeks...possibly even a month to get a positive reading. And how do you know you can't herpes from a hand job. Maybe she had a sore and touched it before she touched me...who knows.

Avatar f tn Dr wants me to get shots, I was told this is very dangerous level. I am against any shots. I tried singular, my level went higher during that time. I was told once that if level was1,000 and over the dr could not help me or give me shots. I feel like I don't have an evidence of allergies except some sneezing in the morning and heaviness in my eyes and head. I don't feel this justify s shots. What is the normal level and can you tell me if these shots are the right thing to do.
Avatar n tn My Ig E Level is 409.0 KU/L and results have further shown that i am allergic to some vegetables, yeast, Housedust, Housedustmite, paper dust, Parthenium, Pefume, and some medicines Is the High Ig e level purely due to allergys i have or can there be something else also wrong in my Body , any further tests i need to get done ?
Avatar m tn although I am almost tempted not to retest due to emotional trauma also although no studies have been done specifically on it do you think that allergy testing could change my G-levels as i had that done the day before the first test and apparently G-glyoproteins are produced in response to allergys. last thing...

Avatar n tn Hi, welcome to the forum, the normal IgE levels fall below 100. Any level above 500 is higher and is suggestive of allergy or parasitic infection. He is known to have abnormally high levels. It can be seen in patients with atopic or allergic dermatitis. It is usually seen secondary to exposure to allergen and subsequent reaction is mediated by IgE antibodies. His body is known to hypersensitive to certain things and in response his body generates IgE antibodies to tackle the allergen.
Avatar m tn Hello, I just found out that similar to "At-Home" tests that diabetics use, they also sell "at home" allergy blood tests that will tell you whether you are allergic to something or not. I know that it is not as thorough as the skin pr!ck test, but it's "something". Have any of you successfully used any? Any brand names or information that you would be able to recommend? Thanks.
Avatar m tn All that is important is whether the index value falls BELOW the cut-off (negative), or above the cut-off (positive). The index level will fluctuate every time you take a test, it is irrelevant.
Avatar n tn s that the results is very near to the Index level, Result 0.22 index level = ≥ 0.25. I need to take the test again?, this result imply any risk of been developing the disease?. I hope you can respond my questions.
Avatar m tn First phallange of index finger is swollen. Inflammation on handling dusty objects. Advise.
Avatar m tn I have been having problems with hypoglycemia and I was also have fatigue for the past couple months - my arms and legs felt tired and I feel like I was craving sleep. My doctor found my TSH was 9.8 (5.4 high limit normal). All other blood panel items were normal including fasting insulin. He started me on 50mg levothyroxine. 2 days after I started taking levothyroxine, I felt like I had ALOT of energy, more than I've had in years. I've felt this way for 2 weeks.
Avatar f tn The time and amount of skin exposed depends on both your skin type and conditions such as the UV index. In good UVB light conditions a UV index of 3 or higher, between 10:30 a.m. and mid-afternoon. You need 50-75% of your skin being exposed. That's a lot of skin. Exposing less skin will still allow you to absorb UVB rays, but more time is required the less skin that's exposed. FitzPatrick Skin Type Chart http://standtanning.com/The_Fitzpatrick_Skin.
