Immunoglobulin E (IgE)

A true allergy involves Immunoglobulin E, also known as IgE. IgE is called the “allergic” antibody and is part of the immune system that is used to identify, label, and attach to the foreign “invaders” and allergens in your body.  IgE helps cause the symptoms of an allergic reaction by activating the release of histamine and other allergy causing chemicals.
