Hi, the ‘K’ could mean a thousand. The normal range for IgE is between 4.2 to 592 U/ml. High IgE in itself is not a cause for concern, if causes such as intestinal parasites have been excluded. People who are atopic, (i.e. who have a familial tendency to develop childhood eczema, hay fever or allergic asthma); generally have IgE levels above the normal or non-atopic range. Those with atopic eczema are particularly likely to have raised IgE levels. It is a marker of atopic status rather than something requiring correction. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Regards.
