My son has elevated IgE levels. Does that mean that he has allergies?
IgE (Immunoglobin E) are antibodies produced by the immune system. They can be elevated for many reasons. A common reason may include the presence of an allergic condition. Allergic conditions include atopic dermatitis, allergic rhinitis, asthma, and food allergy. It is important to understand that total IgE does not mean your son has a specific allergy to something. But, testing specific IgE (IgE that binds to pollen or a specific food) can help determine this. Two tests can assess specific allergies: The skin prick tests and serum-specific IgE blood tests. It is also critical to understand that these tests are sensitive. A positive skin prick or blood test to food, in itself, cannot make a diagnosis of food allergy. The medical history is important to make this diagnosis. I recommend you discuss the test results with your son's physician.
