Cyrex Array 4- Gluten Associated Sensitivity and Cross Reactive Foods

Problems with standard tests for gluten intolerance

  • cyrexStandard blood tests for gluten intolerance have a less than 30 percent accuracy rate. Would you tolerate that accuracy rate for a cancer, heart disease, or even pregnancy test? Gluten has to have significantly destroyed the gut wall for blood testing to be effective, and for many people that isn’t the case…especially if the brain, heart, or some other part of the body is the main target of attack.
  • Current salivary tests produce false negatives due to the assessment of only one antibody of one wheat protein. Stool tests produce false negative and false positives due to specimen-interfering factors that alter the outcome of results.
  • Current tests only screen for one component of wheat. Yet people can react to a single protein in wheat, or a combination of many proteins, peptides, and enzymes associated with wheat. Cyrex Labs tests for twelve of the most antigenic (meaning most likely to provoke a reaction) pathogens associated with wheat.
  • Some people also have cross-reactivity to gluten. For instance, eating dairy, or soy or corn can trigger a gluten-like immune response because the body sees them as one in the same.

Is your body reacting to gluten-free foods as if they were gluten?

Gluten intolerance and sensitivities are not as straightforward as you might think. In fact, researchers are finding that some people react to “gluten free” foods as if they were gluten.

Many people who have been diagnosed with celiac disease continue eating these Cross Reactive Foods.

These Cross Reactive Foods are capable of inducing the same damage as wheat gluten. This has been studied and confirmed as one of the main reasons Celiac sufferers never experience complete GI healing.

In order to achieve your gluten-free health goals and create optimal health, it is important to know what your immune system is still being challenged by.

Lactose Intolerance and Coffee Intolerance

The most common example of this type of cross-reaction is the fact that about 50% of those who are gluten intolerant are also sensitive to dairy. Surprisingly, researcher are also finding that coffee tends to cross-react with gluten. If you are leading a gluten-free lifestyle, this test will tell you whether or not you need to eliminate coffee from your diet.

Gluten Free Lifestyle

Because there are gluten-free foods that the body will recognize as gluten, it makes it difficult to tailor lifestyle changes.
What’s being tested:

This test, looks at the most common foods that have the potential to react the same as gluten.

Cyrex Lab Array 3- Gluten Intolerance Test

Cyrex Lab Array 3- 12 Component Gluten Intolerance Test

Types of Gluten Intolerance

Gluten intolerance is not as straight-forward as it may seem. Even though useful, traditional blood tests for gluten sensitivities only look at one component of gluten to determine if one is sensitive, alpha gliadin. It is very common for someone who is in fact gluten sensitive to test negative because he or she is does not respond to alpha gliadin.

Our unique test from Cyrex Labs (array #3) identifies 12 different components of wheat that can promote inflammation and negatively stimulate the immune system.

These reactions and lead to allergies, celiac disease, and other autoimmune diseases.

Gluten and the Brain

This test panel also looks for the potential for gluten to cause addictive behaviors. Specific enzymes in the gut break gluten down into opioids that promote addictive behaviors. One of the major reasons our society has seen a spike in ADD/ADHD, depression, anxiety and other neurological dysfunctions is because of these opiods.

If your are considering starting a gluten free program, knowing your potential for major withdrawal symptoms is important. We will work with you to help support brain function in order to minimize withdrawal symptoms.


How Can this Gluten Intolerance Test Help Me?

cyrexIt is very possible that you can in fact be gluten intolerant and still test negative. The most import benefit of this Cyrex Labs gluten intolerance test is that it limits false negatives. This means if you have gluten concerns and want to know if you are truly gluten intolerant, then this is the test to run.
