What causes elevated tryptase levels?

Tryptase, a protein in the blood, is often associated with allergic reactions and some patients with ME/CFS-like symptoms have an elevated level of tryptase in their blood. These elevated levels may be caused by multiple copies of the alpha tryptase gene.

What are normal tryptase levels?

The total serum tryptase i.e. the two proformes α-tryptase and ß-tryptase plus mature tryptase, may be measured. Normal tryptase values are 1-16 g / l. Human mast cells play a central role in inflammatory processes and are activated, in particular, during allergic reactions.

What does tryptase test for?

A tryptase test is useful for checking mast cell activation, which can help diagnose anaphylaxis (along with a histamine test), mastocytosis, or general mast cell activation.
