Hi - he has been having episodes of hypoglycaemia and following he breaks out in bruises.Fatigue, muscle aches, dark eyes.Level was 158% if that makes sense.Also has a history of elevated IGE (over 1000) and elevated esoinphils.
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 7 months ago

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for his symptoms.
Elevated Factor VIII level can increase the tendency of clot formation or thrombosis.
The risk is not linear or can not be predicted from level only.
This needs to be correlated with physical findings by doctor.

High IgE, elevated eosinophils are suggestive of allergy.
I hope this information will be helpful.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
