However, if levels are excessive, can damage the body. Overreaction occurs if the amount of IgE antibodies in the body beyond normal limits. In normal conditions, the amount of IgE 200. However, the stress in pregnant women, babies born to IgE levels of more than 200, even closer to 1,000.  

With the amount of excess, IgE binds easily with each other, causing cell rupture, and chemical substances including histamine, a substance that causes allergy, will come out.
