So i have a severe allergy to dust mites and dust. In my RAST blood results showed very high >100 to both species of dust mites. I have intermittent shortness of breath, itchy nostrils, chronic cough most at night, sinus pressure, sneezing, clear discharge (never green). In the summer i feel better though, its worse in the autumn and winter. I also have enlarged turbinates and a deviated septum.
my IGE is very very high >2500
im not taking any meds as their side effects are worst than the symptoms i feel (moon face, midsection weight gain, diabetes, lowered immunity, etc)
I wanted to know the IGE of people there suffering from allergies, allergic asthma that has had the allergy blood test to compare to mines, if its ok if i stay taking absolute no meds and if elevated IGE isnt dangerous.
Thank you so much!
