Understanding Allergy Screen, Total IgE and Phadia Top (Adult & >5yr)

What is Allergy Screen, Total IgE and Phadia Top (Adult & >5yr)?

An allergy is a hypersensitivity response of the immune system that causes undesirable reactions to certain environmental substances using a specialized technique called ImmunoCAP. Such patients produce high levels of antibodies called immunoglobulin E (IgE) in response to certain allergens present in the atmosphere. Allergy Screen, Total IgE and Phadia Top (Adult & >5yr) is a screening test that helps in the diagnosis of Atopy or IgE-mediated allergy in adults and children above 5 years. You can order this test if you have sneezing, runny nose, hives, difficulty in breathing, itching, etc. This test measures Total IgE and specialized Phadiatop IgE using ImmunoCAP with comprehensive inhalant allergens like dust, pollen, animal dander, grass, weed etc present in air. Based on these results further specific allergen testing may be recommended. Getting tested helps in distinguishing atopic (IgE mediated) from non-atopic (non-IgE mediated) allergies and aids in getting appropriate treatment.

What is Allergy Screen, Total IgE and Phadia Top (Adult & >5yr) used for?

* If you have symptoms suggesting an allergic disorder like periodic or persistent itching, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, eczema, itchy eyes, sneezing, coughing etc. * If your doctor is suspecting a parasitic infection

Total IgE

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. Typically, IgE is present in tiny 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.

Getting tested aids in distinguishing atopic (allergen-sensitive) from non-atopic (non-allergen-sensitive) allergies and provides appropriate treatment.

Interpreting Allergy Screen, Total IgE and Phadia Top (Adult & >5yr) results


* If your total IgE level is increased, it usually indicates that you are suffering from one or more allergies. Sometimes, increased levels are also associated with parasitic infections. * An elevated IgE indicates an allergic process but does not indicate what a person is allergic to. In general, the greater the number of things a person is allergic to, the higher is the IgE level.
