    Hi Josie,

    What is your doctor telling you about Xolair and IgE? I have been on it for 4 years. My understanding is that Xolair binds with IgE to keep it from triggering further allergic response and does not affect the the IgE level itself.


    Why was your level retested? My research indicated that retesting is usually not necessary.

    What else you are doing to control you allergies and asthma?

    Praying you feel better.
