About the IgE Food Allergy Test 

Allergies occur when your immune system reacts to certain foreign substances like dust, pollen, smoke that don’t cause a reaction in most people. 
Your immune system produces proteins known as antibodies that help protect you from unwanted invaders that could make you sick or cause infection. In the case of allergies, your immune system produces antibodies that identify a particular substance (allergen) as harmful, even though it isn’t. When you’re exposed to the allergen, the antibodies release a number of chemicals, such as histamine, that can inflame your skin, sinuses, airways, or digestive system.

WHAT’S THE CAUSE?
Substances that most commonly trigger allergies include:

  • Foods: Examples include peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish, shellfish, eggs, and milk 

Symptoms of Food Allergy

Common food allergy signs and symptoms include:

    • Tingling or itching in the mouth
    • Itching skin or eczema
    • Swelling of the lips, face, tongue and throat or other parts of the body
    • Wheezing, nasal congestion, trouble breathing or asthma like symptoms
    • Abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting
    • Dizziness, lightheadedness

Food Allergies testing process

Food allergies (veg or non veg) are diagnosed with the help of a blood test where a blood sample is sent to a laboratory for analysis. The laboratory checks the blood for IgE antibodies to specific foods and allergens like dust, pollen etc. If enough IgE antibodies to a particular food or allergen are in the blood, it's very likely that the person is allergic to it. 

Meaning of unclear food allergy test reports

If the food allergy test results of these comprehensive blood tests are unclear, an allergist might do a test called the food challenge. During this test, the person is given gradually increasing amounts of the potential food allergen to eat while the doctor watches for symptoms.

What is the ige test normal range?

The optimal range for IgE  in the blood sample is an IgE concentration of 150 - 1,000 UI/ml

  1. Are antibodies and immunoglobulins the same thing?
