My 4 year-old-son has high IgE levels in blood. Could the body be reacting to cancer?

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

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

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?

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 more

An elevated ige level is almost always associated with atopy (the state of being allergic), and is quite common in people with seasonal allergies, food allergies, and especially allergic eczema. ...Read more
