My IgE level is 1300 and my sister has elevated IgM and IgA levels. Is this genetic? And could my other levels be off too?

In brief: Immunoglobulins

A high ige is seen in allergies and allergic asthma and eczema.
This is what your level means. Your sister's is a different problem, slight elevations in both igm and IgA can be reactions to acute infections, she is best evaluated by an immunologist to determine if this needs to be investigated further.
