The Systeme International specifies that IgE be reported in micrograms per liter (µg/L), with two significant digits. 4. Relationship of Total IgE to Allergic Disease Many studies have shown that total serum IgE concentrations are higher in allergic adults and children compared to nonallergic individuals of similar ages. There is, however, a relatively large overlap between serum IgE concentrations in allergic and nonallergic individuals, which limits the diagnostic value of total IgE measurements.
