Introduction to IgE Total Test

Do you often suffer from allergic reactions and cannot determine the cause? You may need to get your total IgE test done.

Immunoglobulin E or IgE is an antibody released by your immune system in the body’s defense. Substances you may be allergic to trigger the immune system to produce the required antibodies (IgE) to fight the foreign substances. Unfortunately, the antibodies trigger the release of histamine, which further turns into an allergic reaction.

This is why it is important to get the IgE levels tested. The higher the IgE level, the more severe the reaction. The test helps your doctors provide you with the required treatment or suggest further tests if necessary.

You can book an IgE test from Redcliffe Labs and collect your sample from your doorstep.

What is the purpose of the Total IgE Test?

Everyone knows how important it is to get tested for allergies, and the total IgE test is the most reliable and accurate. Here are five reasons to make you understand better the purpose of the Total IgE Test:

  • Detection of allergens: 

It helps in the determination of allergens triggering the reaction and in further testing and treatment. 

  • Determine treatment methods:

It helps doctors with their treatment. It helps them determine if the person is suffering from any allergic reaction or other issues so that they can provide treatment accordingly.

  • Screening other conditions:

If the test report does not show any sign of an allergic reaction, it clarifies the situation for the doctors, and they proceed with tests for other conditions.

  • Determining inflammation:

This IgE serum test can help determine skin, lung, or other organ-related conditions.

  • Progress monitoring:

It helps determine any progress that has happened due to the treatment.

These are the main reasons one should get tested for IgE on the doctor’s recommendation. 

Preparations Before the Total IgE Test:

No special set of rules must be followed before taking the IgE blood test. However, these are some basic guidelines to be followed:

  • You are not required to fast before taking the double marker test, but if your health requires it, talk to your physician about any special dietary requirements.
  • If you are pregnant, you might be taking any medication or supplements. It is important to inform your doctor about that as well. You do not need to panic in such situations; if they think there is an issue, they will tell you about the solution as well. 
  • It is a blood test, so avoiding any workouts or yoga before taking the test is always recommended.
  • It is advised not to smoke or drink alcohol before taking the test because it may alter the test results.

If you follow these basic guidelines before taking the test and keep your physician in the loop, you are ready.

The procedure for the Total IgE test:

This IgE serum test is like any other blood test, and it does not take more than 5-10 minutes for the phlebotomist to take the blood sample. The procedure for getting the test is as follows;

  • The phlebotomist, on arrival, ties a band around your arm.
  • They tell you to make a fist so the veins are properly visible.
  • They disinfect the area from which the blood is to be drawn.
  • Then, a thin, sterile needle is inserted into the vein to draw blood, and after the needle is removed, a bandage is put on the punctured area.
  • After drawing the blood, they put it in a vial, seal it, and label it.
  • This vial is then taken to the laboratory to be tested.

Remember that the punctured area may have a stinging sensation for two days. If the pain lasts longer than two days or is significantly severe, consult a doctor.

Interpreting the IgE Blood Test Results:

The normal IgE levels for adults can vary depending on the laboratory performing the test and the specific units of measurement used. The normal range of IgE levels ranges between 0 to 150 IU/ml. 

Well, everyone has only one level of IgE. It may vary from person to person over time. At the same time, the normal range of IgE levels for adults falls within the range of 150 to 1000 IU/ml. 

IgE levels above the normal range can suggest various health issues, such as asthma, hay fever, or eczema. In some cases, extremely high IgE levels can cause certain rare immunodeficiency disorders. So, if you notice any allergic symptoms, consult your doctor and take an IgE test. 

How to Prevent Allergic Reactions?

Allergic reactions can be life-threatening; knowing about your allergies and trying to avoid them as much as possible is important. Some of the ways you can prevent allergic reactions are:

  1. Avoid Allergens:
  • Food Allergies: Read food labels carefully, avoid cross-contamination, and be cautious when eating out.
  • Environmental Allergies: Stay indoors during high pollen seasons, use air purifiers, and keep windows closed.
  • Pet Allergies: Limit exposure to pets, keep pets out of certain rooms, and clean frequently.
  1. Medications:

Antihistamines: These can help control symptoms of mild allergies.

Epinephrine Auto-Injectors: Carrying an epinephrine auto-injector (e.g., EpiPen) is essential for severe allergies.

  1. Immunotherapy:

Allergy shots or sublingual tablets can gradually reduce sensitivity to certain allergens over time.

  1. Personal Hygiene:

 Wash hands and face frequently, especially after being outdoors or in contact with potential allergens.

 Shower and change clothes after outdoor activities to remove pollen and other allergens.

  1. Home Environment:

Use allergen-proof mattresses and pillow covers.

Regularly clean and vacuum to reduce dust mites, mold, and pet dander.

Maintain low indoor humidity to prevent mold growth.

  1. Educate and Communicate:

Inform family, friends, and coworkers about your allergies.

Wear a medical alert bracelet if you have severe allergies.

  1. Avoid Smoking and Pollutants:

Avoid exposure to tobacco smoke and other pollutants that can exacerbate respiratory allergies.

Implementing these measures can significantly reduce the risk of allergic reactions and help manage symptoms effectively.
