The Total IgE test is used to determine presence of a type 1 allergic reaction or parasites). It measures the amount of IgE antibody in the blood.

Allergies are a common condition that affects the body’s immune system. When the body has an allergic reaction, a normally harmless trigger substance such as dust, pollen or specific foods, initiates an immune response via production of an antibody called immunoglobulin IgE. A high detection of Total IgE in a blood sample may mean there are one or more allergies. This test measures the total number of IgE antibodies in the blood, which differs from the specific IgE test that measures IgE responses to various allergens.
