A raised Total IgE level indicates that it is likely that you have one or more allergies.
If you have occasional or regular skin, lung, or digestive symptoms that suggest allergies then you may wish to be tested.
The part of the body the allergen touches affects what symptoms you develop.
Eating something you are allergic to can cause nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, cramping, diarrhea, or a severe, life-threatening reaction
Allergens that you breathe in often cause a stuffy nose, itchy nose and throat, mucus production, cough, or wheezing
Allergens that touch the eyes may cause itchy, watery, red, swollen eyes
Allergens that touch the skin can cause a skin rash, hives, itching, blisters, or skin peeling
Drug allergies usually involve the whole body and can lead to a variety of symptoms
If your level is raised then you may wish to have further testing to identify the allergen.
