What does a class 3 allergy to eggs mean?

What does a class 3 allergy to eggs mean?

The higher the class, the more antibody was found against that food. Class 0 has little or no ige detected while class 6 means very high levels were found.

What do high IgA serum mean? Does it mean allergies?

What do high IgA serum mean?  Does it mean allergies?

No, IgE = allergies: A high ige is associated with allergies, parasitic infections and some rarer medical conditions. A slightly high IgA is a nonspecific finding and may not be clinically significant. If it's extremely high, like ten times normal, it could mean a plasma cell abnormality, like multiple myeloma. Autoimmune diseases may also cause IgA to become elevated. Ask an immunologist to evaluate you if concerned. ...Read more
