My son was tested @ the age of 10 months when he had his first anaphylactic reaction to PB. His IgE was 2,130 to peanuts; 800 range for egg; 270 for milk and I forgot what his score was for soybean.
I would be very curious as to what his levels are now. (He is 9 1/2 now).
Stay Safe!

My PA ds #1 (will be 5 in November) was just RAST tested a couple of weeks ago for peanut only.
We have the same chart that Synthia posted.
His Total IGE was 20. His RAST came back with a 1.73KU/L, 325% Ref, Class 3, High Level.
The allergist told us that he would not require allergy shots.
My NO PA ds #2 (just turned 3 in August) was also RAST tested for peanut only.
His Total IGE was <2. His RAST came back with a <0.35KU/L, 36.5% Ref, Class 0, Absent/Undetectable.
Allergist again told us that he would not require allergy shots.
Our tests were done by Quest Diagnostics Incorporated, Wood Dale, Illinois
Hope this helps. (I still don't understand it.)

Hi-Can someone explain this. We got our results back and are waiting for allergist appointment
total ige is in range 67 and range would be 0-167
but..peanut is 1.89 so that would make dc a class two on the peanut scale. Pediatrician isn't sure as he said usually the total ige is high for it to be a true allergy
Does this still mean my child is allergic to peanuts? I am confused.
