Allergies occur when your immune system is triggered by envirionmental factors it should ignore--for example, pollen in the air, or dander on a cat or dog--and creates cells to fight against them. An allergic reaction typically causes itching, congestion, or drainage, and ...Read more
Genetics: Inborn differences among individuals results in a broad range of every type of human characteristic. Hormone production/responsiveness is no different. Some have more; some have less; if it's a lot less, it is viewed as a "deficiency".

IgE antibodies : Theoretically, one would expect monoclonal IgE antibodies to be very effective in blocking the allergic response.

If histadelia is high histamine diphenhydramine, is an anti-histamine temporarily regulating my natural histamine levels?
No scientific basis: You can find histadelia on any Google search, but NOT on any serious medical search.

Diphenhydramine will help such patients, also allergic patients in general, as many are mediated by histamine. However, histaelia is NOT a real disease. ...Read more
Not really: I suggest 3 steps to controlling allergies : 1) avoid the things you are allergic to. 2) take medications to control the symptoms. 3) get 'allergy shots' (immunotherapy) to teach your body to not be "allergic" to those things (immune tolerance). Using a leukotriene antagonist control the symptoms some, but it is not the most effective medication, and is not an equal alternative to immunotherapy. ...Read more

2 yrs rhinitis symptoms. Tried steroid sprays, allergy meds, scans, reflux, the lot! One possibility: v.high IgE Total on allergy blood test. Ideas?
Treatment: There are several potential causes for rhinitis. In this case, high IgE is suggestive of allergy to environmental triggers (but in no way clearly diagnostic). 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
