High Ig E Levels Cancer
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more
Consider allergy: There are five types of antibodies in the blood. The other word for antibody is immunoglobulin, or ig. The five types of antibody are g (keeps you immune), a (protects your surfaces such as nose and gut from infection), m (kills currently active infections), d (unknown function), and e (worm infections and allergies. So the e type is ige and when it is up think of allergies or worms. Read more
Genetics: The tendency to make more ige in response to foreign substances that enter the body (aka allergens) is inherited. Allergies and parastic infections are the common reasons why people develop high ige levels. There are some rare disorders associated with increased risk of infections associated with very high levels of ige. A board-certified allergist can help sort this out for you.

Spasm yes, IgE no: A facial spasm can be a neurological symptom. There is a condition called hemifacial spasm for example, which is a paroxysmal activation of the muscles affecting smiling and eye closure on one side. I am not aware that high IgE levels correlate with this, or any other, neurological condition. Read more
I went to an allergist and he told me that my IgE level was 1280. He said that was high. But how high is that? Or is it high for normal?
IgE level: A normal ige is usually pretty low. The exact normal given by each lab varies but the upper limit of the normal range is usually not much over 100. A level of 1280 is certainly high, but much higher levels than that are sometimes seen, as well. Very high levels can occur with significant allergies, eczema, parasitic infestations and a few rare diseases. It's good you have an allergist! Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My son (4) had an IgE level of 1400 (high) what could cause this? He does have eczema and had a few environmental and good allergies.
Consider testing: The ige level that was measured is considered to be extremely high. If your son has pulmonary symptoms, a chest radiograph may be ordered by your physician to document structural changes in the airways. There is a condition called abpa which afffects about 10% of asthmatics and CF patients. Airway fungal sensitization can be measured and tests ordered to detect reactions to fungi as well. Read more

My IgE level is 1300 and my sister has elevated IgM and IgA levels. Is this genetic? And could my other levels be off too?
Immunoglobulins: A high ige is seen in allergies and allergic asthma and eczema. This is what your level means. Your sister's is a different problem, slight elevations in both igm and IgA can be reactions to acute infections, she is best evaluated by an immunologist to determine if this needs to be investigated further.
