IgE (Immunoglobulin E)

Immunoglobulin E is a type of antibody, which is produced by the body if exposed to an allergen. These proteins help the body fight bacteria and germs. The body produces these antibodies as a reaction to any harmless substance such as dust, or food. The symptoms of having an allergic reaction are varied and can be an irritation caused to the nose, throat or lungs or other signs. Allergic reactions could be mild or severe and in rare cases, they can also be life threatening.

If the test indicates a high level of IgE antibodies, it is most likely that you are allergic to the substance that has been tested for. 

Have you been feeling any of these symptoms lately?

The Immunoglobulin E blood test is suitable for individuals experiencing one or more of the following symptoms:

1. Runny Nose

2. Itchy and Watering Eyes

3. Swollen tongue or face

4. Shortness of breath and cough

5. Vomiting or Diarrhoea
