My IgE level is 2363.0 iu/ml .i have pollen allergy but this blood test result is causing much tension as normal ranges between 1 to 100 kindly guide?
Talk to doctor: If you are healthy otherwise, it is entirely possible that the elevated IgE is from your pollen allergies. Do note that people with eczema can have IgE level in the tens of thousands IU when the skin problem flares up and in the range you described even when the condition is quiescent. Note that there are indeed other medical conditions associated with elevated IgE level. ...Read more

My 2 years baby had IgE serum blood test for skin problem its proteins IgE serum level is 91 4 how i conclude allergic sub?
Specific testing: While an ige of 914 is extremely high, it does not give specific information as to what substances the baby may be allergic to. If the skin problem is eczema, then one would want to know what specific foods the baby is allergic to. Once that info is obtained the food or foods can be eliminated from the diet to see if the skin rash clears up. Once the skin is better the foods can be added back. ...Read more
I recently had a Ige Blood Test for food allergies. The results can back at tomatoes: moderate Wheat: Low and Soy: Low. What does this mean?
Complicated: You cannot draw your conclusions from your testing only. If you have a positive test but eat the food every day without symptoms you are not allergic to that food. On the other hand if you have a low positive test but get hives every time you eat it you are allergic. The correct diagnosis is made by a combination of history and test results. You may need a supervised food challenge. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is an IGE allergy blood test as accurate as a skin test? My skin test from 1 year prior to IGE blood test showed additional allergens.
Likely complementary: Although prick skin test is considered better in detecting food allergies the results of blood tests are complementary. I often order the blood test first in a case of a food suspected of causing anaphylaxis. If the result is negative or equivocal, then I would proceed with a skin test prior to a food challenge. The results are at times discrepant. ...Read more

More information is needed in order to suggest a specific strategy (eg allergy shots or immunotherapy), but no matter the cause; rest assured that we have options. ...Read more

Many healthy people have higher uric acid levels than you do. Your physician knows what the next steps are. Good luck. ...Read more
