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


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

The Allergy Screen, Total IgE and Phadia Top (Adult & >5yr) panel is a customized set of blood tests available at an affordable price in Bangalore with Tata 1mg labs. This panel is intended for adults and children above 5 years of age to help detect immunoglobulin-E (IgE), a type of antibody produced by the immune system in response to allergic reactions. It also includes comprehensive screening against a wide range of common airborne allergens (inhalants) such as dust, pollen, animal dander, mold, grass, weed, etc.

Your doctor may suggest the Allergy Screen, Total IgE and Phadia Top (Adult & >5yr) if you exhibit symptoms such as nasal congestion, sneezing, itchy/watery eyes, coughing, wheezing, skin rashes, hives, etc. Generally, no special preparation is required for this test. However, inform your doctor about any medications (such as antihistamines) you are taking, as they might influence your test results.

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

Contains 2 tests

It measures Total IgE (antibodies produced by the immune system in response to allergens)  and specialized Phadiatop IgE using ImmunoCAP with comprehensive inhalant allergens like dust, pollen, animal dander, grass, weed, etc., present in the air.

When an allergen (allergy-causing substance) enters the body, the immune system produces immunoglobulin IgE antibodies. These are produced to fight foreign substances. and trigger the release of histamines from the cells. This causes allergic symptoms. Getting tested aids in distinguishing atopic (allergen-sensitive) from non-atopic (non-allergen-sensitive) allergies and provides appropriate treatment. With careful management and a tailored treatment plan, allergies can be effectively managed to minimize the impact on your quality of life.

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. The Total IgE test measures the concentration of these IgE antibodies in the blood, providing insights into the presence and severity of allergies.
