Avatar f tn Of course, a second opinion might be a good idea, especially since your doctor has some thoughts about IgE levels that I have never heard. I have heard of people with much higher IgE levels - even reaching into the 3000 range. Usually they have a lot of eczema problems and other issues. I hope that helps some. You have a hard decision to make.
Avatar n tn It has increased from 5000 to 9000 in just a few weeks. She has a tree nut allergy but no other symptoms such as asthma or eczema or a parasite. Does anyone know what other things we should test for and what kind of specialist we should see in addition to allergist?
209987 tn?1451935465 My two yr old son had a blood allergy test done about a year ago...didn't show anything, but pediatrician said that most times the blood ones don't show much unless specifically searched for. My question is...he loves peanut butter...he eats it and never seems to get sick from it, except that he gets a pimply rash on his face where the peanut butter has touched him...could this be an allergy? Is his face possibly just sensitive to the oils?
Avatar m tn Are you diabetic? I suggest you see your doctor as high blood sugar is not something you should ignore.
Avatar m 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.
Avatar f tn Seasonal allergies are generally due to pollen or dust. It could be food allergy or allergy to any food ingredient. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn I am 38 years old and have battle allergies my life but began get huge hives a few years ago. After many allergy tests and rounds of prednizone, it was my allergy doctor who realized that I probable had high Ige levels....and blood work proved him right. I began my first series of Xolair with very high hopes. It worked great...but I rebound higher after each series. Normal levels are under 150...I started off with just slightly higher at 183. This was a couple years ago.
Avatar n tn Any level above 500 is higher and is suggestive of allergy or parasitic infection. You have known to have mild rise in 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. Your body is known to hypersensitive to certain things.
Avatar f tn Any level above 500 is higher and is suggestive of allergy or parasitic infection. You have known to have moderately higher 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. Your body is known to hypersensitive to certain things.

Avatar m tn As for your allergic reactions, allergy testing may help confirm this. Consult an allergy specialist. First he may do a blood IgE levels to see if they are raised. Next, he will do skin testing. This test is painless, in which a very small amount of certain allergens are pricked into the surface of your skin. If you have allergies, just a little swelling will occur where the allergen was introduced. Reactions occur within about 15 minutes.
Avatar f tn my mother aged 73 years has high blood pressure but also has allergic attacke due to this her blood pressure drops down. recently we had an allergic test done for her. her ige levels are 436 she is allergic to milk curd cheese peanuts til lemon certain inhallers like house dust housemites.
Avatar m tn Any level above 500 is higher and is suggestive of allergy or parasitic infection. You have not mentioned the units. The levels you have mentioned is inconclusive. As bsml stated, you need to go for reassessment by an certified allergy specialist if the levels remain inconclusive. I suggest you to consult allergy specialist. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn My allergy levels are over 800. I suffer from bronchiectisis and Alpha 1anti-trypsin disease. My nasals are constantly stuffed and irritated. Plus, I am always congested. I'm also susceptible to pneumonia. I've tried so many medicines but nothing controls my ails.

He is known to have abnormally high levels. It can be seen in patients with atopic or allergic dermatitis.

His body is known to hypersensitive to certain things and in response his body generates IgE antibodies to tackle the allergen.
Avatar f tn The oral dose is roughly 100 times larger than the inhaled does. That changes a little if you are higher levels of Advair, but then the usual oral dose is bigger than my example as well. Factor in that the medicine in Advair is being inhaled and used directly in your lungs, not being digested and spread through your intire body, the amount of steroid that gets into your system is even less than 1/100th the size as with oral steroids.
848718 tn?1257138801 s not really an allergy test, although looking at various IgA antibody levels to specific items can help identify allergies. But allergies are a form of over-active immune system stuff, while this is saying my IgA levels are lower than they should be in general (not looking at antibodies for a specific disease or substance). Thanks though!
Avatar n tn As allergic reactions are IgE mediated, blood tests will show increase in these levels secondary to a food allergy. The problem with the food allergy testing is sometimes the amount of food they challenge with may be not sufficient to elicit any allergic reactions. When such food is consumed in large quantities can elicit allergic reaction in the form of hives, redness of skin, itching etc. You need to note down such food also in your diary and avoid the intake in future.

Avatar f tn Hi, and a 44 year old women with a question about immunology. I used to have allergies to just about everything - penicillin, ampicillin, amoxicillin, celcor, sulfa drugs, all cephalosporins, all OTC topical antibiotic ointments, cats, dogs, pollens, molds dusts, perfumes, detergents, etc. I had terrible eczema and chronic general itchiness and I reacted very badly to some antibiotics.
