Immunoglobulins are antibodies (proteins) produced by plasma cells (specific immune cells) when the body recognizes bacteria, viruses, other microorganisms, or any other unknown substances as harmful foreign antigens (allergy-causing substances or allergens) to the immune system. There are five types of immunoglobulins: IgA, IgG, IgM, IgD, and IgE.
Unlike other antibodies, IgE is primarily associated with immune responses to allergenic substances, such as plant pollen, latex, pet dander, mold, eggs, peanuts, bee venom, and strawberries. Normally, IgE is present in very small amounts in the blood. When the immune system encounters an allergen, it triggers the production of IgE antibodies. A Total IgE test measures the concentration of these IgE antibodies in the blood, providing insights into the presence and severity of allergies.
