Allergy Test Question

BWIND - November 15

Has anyone had an allergy test done on their LO? Can allergies be found by a blood test or do they have to stick you with a bunch of needles? DS has to go get routine blood work done...and she wrote down IgE....Not sure what that means. I know they are testing for allergies...but didn't know how.

IgE is an immunoglobulin which mediates the immune response in people who have "allergies" to certain things...such as the case in someone with Hay Fever or Seasonal Allergies. The blood test they ran looks at the activity of this protein and can tell whether or your child may have allergies
