There is increasing awareness that foods may play a much larger role in immune reactivity than previously thought. We all eat food, and foods are a constant and sustained source of antigens, much more so than other things we may be exposed to. This test tests for IgA and IgG antibodies.

By combining 3 of the most popular Cyrex screens (Arrays 3, 4 and 10) you can get the most thorough combination of foods tested at a discounted price.

This includes the 180 foods test, the wheat and gluten reactivity screen and the gluten associated foods screen.

Cyrex Array 3 Wheat and Gluten Reactivity Screen

Cyrex Array 4 Gluten Associated Food Reactivity Screen 29 foods

Cyrex Array 10 Multiple Food Reactivity Screen 180 foods test

At Smart Nutrition we pride ourselves in offering the best cost possible for the Cyrex Array 10C (Array 3, 4, & 10) Food Reactivity Screens.

These tests looks at levels of IgA and IgG antibodies that are created when you react to a food.

Please note laboratories do change their list of foods tested from time to time and don’t always update us, but this is the most up to date list we have at this time. If you want to know about a specific food then please double check with us first.

The Cyrex Array 10C (Array 3, 4, & 10) Food Reactivity Screens is a blood test that requires a blood sample which will then need to be centrifuged. Centrifuge can be carried out at the lab if the sample is received within 24 hours from the blood draw.

You will need to arrange for a blood sample to be collected either at a laboratory in London, by a nurse at your GP service or at a private clinic or hospital. Any fee for this service is not included with the test fee.

 

While Cyrex is unable to provide an exhaustive list of medications due to the interactive complexities and varieties of medications and patient circumstances, the following have been noted:

  • Immunosuppressant and corticosteroid drugs can reduce antibody production and cause false negative results.
  • Limited assessments on the effects of aspirin, acetaminophen, and antipsychotics on Arrays 1-4 have been performed. No noticeable effects were observed.
  • Inhalers can affect the results of Cyrex’s oral fluid testing (Array 1). Wait two weeks after completion of inhalant dosages before collecting the specimen.
  • Unknown cross-reactive epitopes from foods and microorganisms may stimulate the antibody production in the absence of a true antigen. Cyrex has already developed Array 4 in order to recognise the most common antigens in this regard.
  • A gluten-free diet can cause false negative results on gluten protein/peptide tests.
  • Certain conditions, such as ileal pouch surgery, may cause a false positive celiac serology.

Please do not stop any medication without your doctor’s consent.

The Cyrex Array 10C (Array 3, 4, & 10) Food Reactivity Screens is suitable for adults and children age 3 years and above.

Cyrex Array 10C (Array 3, 4, & 10) Food Reactivity Screen samples, please them send back to the lab using the prepaid return label.

Please note that samples should only be posted on Monday – Thursday so that they do not arrive over the weekend when the lab is closed.

 

The results of the Cyrex Array 10C (Array 3, 4, & 10) Food Reactivity Screens take 16 -23 days.

Your Cyrex Array 10C (Array 3, 4, & 10) Food Reactivity Screens test results will be emailed to you.

Questions about the Cyrex Array 10C (Array 3, 4, & 10) Food Reactivity Screens

What if I have been avoiding certain foods, can I test these with the Cyrex Array 10 Multiple Food Reactivity Screen 180 foods test?

If you have been avoiding foods for a while the immune response can be reduced and it is possible to get a false negative results so you do need to have eaten the foods you are testing.

Re introducing Foods

Introduce the food every day for 7 days in ‘normal’ quantities – eat a sandwich, or piece of toast, some cheese, a yoghurt, or a glass of milk etc.
You can arrange your blood draw for  25 – 30 days after day 7.
I usually tell people if day 1 of eating gluten is Day 1. You want to run the test around Day 35. It doesn’t have to be precisely day 35, but if you aim for that then you’ll be good.
If you have been avoiding a broad range of foods we might recommend you do a full food reintroduction process of adding in 1 food at a time, waiting 3 days or so before adding in the next food to assess symptoms. If they get significant symptoms from the food, then it might be better to consider that a positive and leave it out and move on to the next food.
Once all the foods have been added in, which can take several weeks or even a couple of months depending on how many and how reactive you are, you can then do the blood test a month after the last food was added.
Please do not introduce any foods you know you are allergic too  – this is commonly shellfish and peanuts etc but can be any food and can result in a very strong reaction. If you are interested in testing your self for possible food allergies please visit this page.
Please do get in touch with our admin team [email protected] if you need further clarification about any of the above.
