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.

This overreaction leads to a high level of IgE in blood and is an indication that the body is facing an allergic reaction.
