Total IgE: Normal value of total ige varies between methods of measurement and age. Each lab will give you a normal value range. In general for adult, it should be less than 100 ku/l so your value of 159 ku/l is slightly elevated. Together with your symptoms, it is likely that you have allergic rhinitis and asthma. Bloating after eating can be due to several reasons beside food allergy.
