Can I lower my ige?

Can I lower my ige?

Yes: Treatment of atopic disease, such as atopic dermatitis or asthma, can result in lowered IgE. The B-cells that make IgE depend on certain signals in the body to live and produce antibody. Time, changes in environmental/food/drug exposure, medicating specific diseases can all result in decreases in both total and specific IgE levels ...Read more

I heard that IgE is specific to peanuts. Is that true?

I heard that IgE is specific to peanuts. Is that true?

No: Of the 5 types of antibodies, ige is the one involved in allergy triggering allergic rhinitis, asthma & food allergies. Cat allergy occurs when your immune system makes ige against cat proteins in cat hair or dander. Peanut allergy occurs when you make ige against peanut proteins. Cashew allergy requires ige to cashew. Each specific ige antibody defines an allergy to the substance it recognizes. ...Read more

What is the function of the extra domain in IgE & igm?

What is the function of the extra domain in IgE & igm?

Trick question: Are you studying immunology? The extra domain on ige indicates a unique role for the c2 domain in the interaction between ige and fcri. C2 reduces the off-rate of the ige/fcri, thereby resulting in a more stable complex. It is felt that the domain on igm co-contributes to the pentamic structure production. ...Read more

My hubby's IgE is 1185. What preventive measures he have to take?

My hubby's IgE is 1185. What preventive measures he have to take?

Don't Rx a number: Ige level is largely genetic, not all that well understood, and the value itself isn't helping or hurting him. It's one piece of information in an allergy workup. If he has real allergies, you can be a big help. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can I confirm my son has an allergy since he tests negative for all IgE allergies?

Can I confirm my son has an allergy since he tests negative for all IgE allergies?

Yes: I presume you mean a blood test was done because you feel he has allergy symptoms. If that is the case then an allergist can do a simple scratch test to confirm this. The age of your son(ie. An infant) would affect the interpretation of these tests as well. ...Read more

Are pseudoallergies to meds less dangerous than "true" IgE mediated allergies? Are they less likely to grow in severity over time?

Are pseudoallergies to meds less dangerous than "true" IgE mediated allergies? Are they less likely to grow in severity over time?

Both can be severe: For a medication allergy, a true ige mediated one can be as severe as one not mediated by ige. Anaphylaxis vs. Anaphylactoid. Same severe symptoms, just not ige mediated. These non-ige reactions can be to: blood products, ace inhibitors for high blood pressure, aspirin, nsaids, narcotics, anti-convulsants, and others. The severity is difficult to predict---treatment is same: avoidance! ...Read more
