High IGE levels
My brother has allergy since birth. We have tried all kind of treatments.
Initially he was on allopathic medicines, but he gained weight tremendously. After a few years we switched to homeopathy, but his condition has not improved.
He is now 26 and i am really worried about his future.
Please suggest good treatment and medication.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

The weight gain may not be related to the allergic reactions, but it could be a side effect of the medications. IgE levels are generally elevated in people with allergic diseases. The normal levels depend on the units of measurement but it is generally 0-100.  If it is higher than 500 it can generally be a sign of parasitic infection. A stool analysis can help detect this. He can consult an allergy specialist. He will do skin testing to identify the allergens. This test is painless, in which a very small amount of certain allergens are pricked into the surface of your skin. If you have allergies, just a little swelling will occur where the allergen was introduced.  Reactions occur within about 15 minutes.  If needed more sensitive intradermal tests will be used in which a small amount of allergen is injected within the skin. Based on this he may plan for immunotherapy.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
