What is tested in IgE Test

IgE or Immunoglobulin E is an antibody in human blood. Antibodies are our body soldiers to fight harmful substances like bacteria and viruses and hence antibodies protect us from diseases and infection. IgE antibody sometime overreacts to certain substances called allergens e.g. eggs, dust, pollens. This overreaction leads to a high level of IgE in blood and is an indication that the body is facing an allergic reaction.
