High Ig E And Urticaria
Hi: What is significance of high IGM, (twice top reference range level), very high IGE, with low IGG, low IGG subclasses, and low IGA? Thanks much!
More info needed: The question asked can be intreperted in many ways. Normally these are levels in relation to a disease. A high IGM means recent infection, a high IGE means something allergic is bothering you and low IGG means less memory antibodies for an old infection. Low IGA is antibody for your gut/intestines. Hopefully this helps. See your doctor for more answers. ...Read more
Depends: Eoisinophil counts can increase due to some infections (parasites), allergies and allergic reactions, connective tissue disorders, and some neoplasms (cancers). Hiv typically does not cause an elevation in these cells. However, if someone has an opportunistic infection like some kinds of parasites, the eopsinophil count can increase. Cd4 t-cells are typically affected by HIV infection. ...Read more
Recent diagnosis of collagenous colitis with high platelets, high IgE and eos. What do the elevated blood levels mea?
No: Hey Lisa -- If you feel well, simply ignore this stuff unless they're so far off that your physician actually talks to you about them. Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside on either end. Percentage counts mean nothing. I can shoot my absolute neutrophi count to 20,000 by ice-swimming. Eos must exceed 1500 to even raise an eyebrow; basos are no-worry. ...Read more

Means nothing alone: Please forgive my frankness. This mishmash of lab results is meaningless apart from your history and physical exam. Reference ranges for labs are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. If you feel well, ignore them. The high hs-CRP may be a heads-up that you've got more atherosclerosis than you think. If you feel well, ignore the rest. ...Read more

Can celiac disease cause elevated WBC levels (above 20, 000) and fever ? Is a person wid high IgE level is more prone to celiac as well?
No and No: The elevated WBC calls for a serious workup by your physician -- we don't want to miss endocarditis, leukemia or any of several other troublesome, possibly treatable diseases. The ige system is barely related to the pathogensis of celiac sprue and the assay is worthless to screen for it. I'm glad you're being proactive & hope you'll get straight talk from your physician now. ...Read more

I am not aware that high IgE levels correlate with this, or any other, neurological condition. ...Read more

IgE in atopic dermatitis: Atopic dermatitis seems to involve both B cell production of IgE as well as T cell function in later phases.The antigens that affect the skin seem to make non-specific IgE production increase. We have recently recognize that staph aureus may be a trigger of the high IgE as there is IGE related to staph. This may drive the eczema even with minimal skin staph carriage rather than true impetigo ...Read more
Usually not: Look for another cause -- or forget the sed rate. It's often done wrong, and even a true elevation often means exactly nothing. If a person appears well otherwise, there's little to be gained and much time and money to be wasted by trying to find the cause of a high sed rate. ...Read more
