Immunoglobulin - IgD & IgE Typing Urine Test

Immunoglobulin - IgD & IgE Typing Urine Test

The Immunoglobulin IgD & IgE Typing Urine test is a diagnostic tool that measures the levels of two types of immunoglobulins, IgD and IgE, in your urine. Immunoglobulins, also known as antibodies, are proteins produced by the immune system to combat harmful foreign substances such as bacteria, viruses, and allergens. Each type of immunoglobulin has a distinct role in the immune response.

IgD's role in the immune system is not completely understood, but it's thought to participate in allergic responses and defending against bacteria. Conversely, IgE is directly implicated in allergic reactions and protection against parasites. This test is generally ordered when symptoms of an allergy, asthma, a suspected parasitic infection, or an immune disorder are present.

What is the Immunoglobulin - IgD & IgE Typing Urine Test?

This test measures the levels of the immunoglobulins IgD and IgE in your urine. It aids in the diagnosis of immune system disorders and allergies.

Why is this test necessary?

This test is important because abnormal levels of IgD and IgE can suggest an underlying immune disorder, allergy, or parasitic infection. By identifying these levels, doctors can diagnose conditions and devise appropriate treatment strategies.

This test is typically ordered when symptoms such as an allergic reaction, asthma, suspected parasitic infection, or an immune disorder are present. Your healthcare provider will provide guidance on the test's timing and necessity.

The test reveals the levels of IgD and IgE in your urine. High levels may suggest an immune disorder, allergy, or parasitic infection, while low levels could indicate an immunodeficiency.

The frequency of this test depends on your symptoms, medical history, and your healthcare provider's advice.

Normal values may vary among laboratories, but typically, the normal range for IgD is less than 100 IU/mL and for IgE is less than 100 IU/mL. These values can differ widely, and results should be interpreted based on your overall health.

No specific precautions are required for this test. Continue taking your regular medications unless your healthcare provider advises otherwise.

Medications, stress, recent infections, or a history of allergies can affect the test results. It's crucial to inform your healthcare provider about all the medications and supplements you're taking, as well as any recent health changes.
