    Hi Elaine,
    Just adding my final results for 9th Dec.
    Antibody count 13.00, down from 13.60
    IgE total (allergy) 19 ng/ml, down from 20 3 months ago, reference range less than 240
    Just in case it is helpful.

    I also have a monthly test of leucocytes, hemotites, platelets (new doc wanted to monitor this). Everything is in normal range. What should I be watching out for?
    Thanks, Claire

    Hi Claire,

    Those are good results. Your IgE is normal and you've successfully recovered from any problems with allergy. It could be that dust mites are the only thing you react to. You're fortunate.
    A falling antibody count shows you're moving toward remission.
    The only other test you might ask for is a 25 OH vitamin D level if you haven't had one in a while. And also a biochemical profile, which you should have at least once a year. Take good care.
    It must be so pretty in France at this time of year. Take care, elaine
