Important Information about Antibody Testing (Cyrex and Vibrant America) When measuring antibodies to identify an immune reaction, one important factor is to determine IF the immunoglobulin mechanism is working optimally in your body. A total immunoglobulin (IgA, IgE, IgG, IgM) test can be done to measure the level of each category of immunoglobulins. Antibody testing (e.g., Cyrex, Vibrant Wellness) measures an Immunoglobulin (antibody) response. For example, Cyrex Array 5 measures an antibody response to our own tissue (identifying an autoimmune process). Remember when the ‘Big Guns’ of your immune system are called into action, there are different branches that may respond (e.g., Total IgA for Marines, Total IgG for the Army, Total IgM for the Air Force, etc.). When we test to see if one of the Branches has been called out (e.g., an IgA response) we make the assumption the “Marines” are well-funded and well-equipped to respond. Immunoglobulin deficiency means that you are not producing adequate levels of antibodies to that branch of the “Armed Forces”. If the “Marines” have been deployed to many different locations at the same time, if they’ve been overtaxed and underfunded, their numbers may not be adequate to respond to the stress (the invader). Thus, a test of the Marines (e.g., Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies IgA on Cyrex Array 5) may come back negative due to immunodeficiency or immunosuppression. There is a problem, but the immune system cannot identify it or respond appropriately. To see if this is an issue for you, a Total Immunoglobulins Panel can be done to measure your immune response. We recommend a Total Immunoglobulin Panel prior to any antibody testing. Total Immunoglobulin Testing can help to identify: • the competence of the immunoglobulin response mechanism, “Is it compromised, suppressed, or just plain ‘worn out’?” • the level of immunoglobulin production. • why an antibody test (e.g., Cyrex) shows multiple antibody markers that are below normal (e.g., <0.5). if an antibody test (e.g., Cyrex) results in a ‘false negative’ due to poor immunoglobulin response capabilities. A person can be born with a genetic vulnerability for immunodeficiency or acquire it through: infection infection steroid use (including steroid inhalers) disease malnutrition burns increased immunoglobulin response increased immunoglobulin response An immunodeficiency could cause your test results to be inaccurate, giving a 'false negative'. <pWe recommend that you start with the Discovery Program prior to ordering any tests. Navigating the testing world of functional medicine can be challenging and confusing. The Discovery Program includes a total immunoglobulin (IgA, IgE, IgG, IgM) lab test and a 30-minute appointment. During this appointment, you will have the opportunity to share your health history, ask specific questions, and receive more tailored one-to-one direction regarding functional testing. Our functional medicine practitioners are trained to recommend the most appropriate wellness approach for you. This appointment could save you hundreds, and in some cases, thousands of dollars from trying to navigate this on your own.

Vibrant America IBSSure

 

We recommend starting with the Wheat Zoomer test or confirming immunoglobulin status prior to ordering this test. Please read the “Important Information about Antibody Testing (Cyrex and Vibrant America)” section above.

What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)?

IBS is a common disorder that affects the large intestine (colon) and commonly causes cramping, abdominal pain, bloating, gas, diarrhea and constipation. IBS, unlike inflammatory bowel disease, does not cause changes in bowel tissue or increase your risk of colorectal cancer.

IBS is a big issue in the world of gastroenterology. It is the most common GI disorder with worldwide prevalence rates ranging from 10-15%. There are between 2.4 and 3.5 million physician visits annually for IBS in the United States. Recent research has shown that up to 84% of those with IBS test positive for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO).

SIBO is defined as the presence of excessive bacteria in the small intestine. SIBO is frequently implicated as the cause of chronic diarrhea, bloating, nutrient malabsorption, brain fog, anxiety, and intestinal permeability. Patients with SIBO may also suffer from unintentional weight loss or gain, nutritional deficiencies, food intolerances, and osteoporosis.

What is the Mechanism for SIBO Development?

CdtB toxins (cytolethal distending toxin B) are released by gastroenteritis causing bacteria against which antibodies are produced by the immune system. These antibodies interact with a protein called vinculin that is present in the intestinal cell-lining matrix. This interaction compromises the intestinal barrier leading to impaired digestive motility. This is key in SIBO development and recurrence.

Why Vibrant America?

Vibrant IBSSure™ may help to identify patients with IBS-D related SIBO. This blood test can reduce costs, reduce potential false-negatives associated with the current industry standard, the breath test, and assist with monitoring for SIBO recurrence.

How does IBSSure work?

One SST tube (serum tube) is collected and shipped to a CLIA and CAP accredited laboratory. Vibrant’s proprietary array of protein chips capture antibodies to CdtB and Vinculin using a chemiluminescent technology delivering high sensitivity and specificity of detection.

What does a Positive IBSSure mean?

If your result is positive, it is highly likely that you have IBS related SIBO. If IBSSure is inconclusive, you may benefit from the hydrogen/methane breath test. If you are taking steroids, anti-inflammatory medications, biologic agents, or any other immunosuppressive medications, you may not get an accurate reading of your antibody levels.

Your test includes a 15 minute Interpretation of your results with Michelle Ross, Director of Clinical Services. Please Note: The test interpretation consultation must take place within 3 months of placing the test order.

Vibrant Wellness Lectin Zoomer

The Lectin Zoomer is a unique test which detects IgA and IgG antibodies to lectins and aquaporins. 

What are Lectins?

Lectins are a large class of sugar-binding proteins that can be found in all forms of life. In plants, lectins are part of the natural defense against microorganisms, pests, and insects. Many members of the lectin protein family can bind together and become problematic for human health. In fact, dietary lectins can contribute to microbial imbalances, intestinal permeability (leaky gut), and immune system activation.

Lectins have been thought to contribute to the development of diseases such as celiac disease, autoimmune diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes through mechanisms involving translocation across the intestinal barrier and activation of the adaptive immune system. The most common high-lectin foods include grains, legumes, and nightshades.

Symptoms and risk factors associated with lectin sensitivity include:

  • Frequent use of antibiotics

  • Following a vegan/vegetarian diet high in grains and/or legumes

  • Those with known intestinal permeability, such as detected on the Vibrant Wheat Zoomer

  • History of rheumatoid arthritis (painful and swollen joints)

  • Experiencing fatigue and tiredness

  • Psychological symptoms or disorders (e.g., depression)

  • Neurological autoimmunity or degenerative symptoms of undefined origin

  • Presence of skin rashes

  • Nausea (especially during or after meals)

 

Lectins tested on the Lectin Zoomer include:

Barley, Bell Pepper, Chickpea, Corn, Kidney Bean, Cucumber, Lentil, Lima Bean, Mung Bean, Pea, Peanut, Potato, Rice, Rye, Soybean, and Tomato.

What are Aquaporins?

Aquaporins or “water channels”, are membrane proteins that assist with water transport between cells. Human aquaporins show similarity to aquaporins from food sources. Because aquaporins from food are highly stable during food preparation and may enter the human body as intact proteins, they may become antigenic and trigger the production of antibodies to human aquaporins. This cross-reactivity mechanism is associated with an increased risk of developing neuroautoimmune disorders.

Anyone with antibodies to food aquaporins may benefit from a Vibrant Neural Zoomer test if neurological autoimmunity or cognitive decline is suspected.

Aquaporins tested on the Lectin Zoomer include:

Bell Pepper, Corn, Potato, Soybean, Spinach, Tobacco, and Tomato.

Vibrant Wellness Micronutrient Panel

Micronutrients, as opposed to macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fat), are comprised of vitamins, minerals, and co-factors which are required in small quantities to ensure normal metabolism, growth, and physical wellbeing.

Vitamins are essential organic nutrients, most of which are not made in the body, or only in insufficient amounts, and usually must be obtained through food. When dietary intake of a vitamin is inadequate, deficiency disorders result. Although vitamins are only present and required in minute quantities, compared to the macronutrients, they are just as vital to health and need to be considered in the context of nutrition quality. Minerals are inorganic nutrients that also play a key role in ensuring health and wellbeing. As with vitamins, minerals are found in small quantities within the body and they are obtained from a wide variety of foods.

Every physiological function in your body requires micronutrients to function optimally. Vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants play a key role in:

  • Producing and releasing energy
  • Strengthening the immune system
  • Reducing systemic inflammation
  • Protecting against free radical damage
  • Protecting against the development, progression, and recurrence of cancer.
  • Maintaining insulin sensitivity
  • Slowing down cellular aging
  • Promoting the health of all tissues: skin, bone, brain, breast, gut, prostate, heart, etc.
  • Maintaining a healthy hormonal balance (i.e. thyroid, sex hormones, adrenal hormones, neurotransmitters/brain hormones, etc.)

Vibrant’s Micronutrient test is the only test that provides a comprehensive extracellular and intracellular assessment of the levels of the most important vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fatty acids, and amino acids.  Knowing both your extracellular and intracellular micronutrient levels are key to a thorough understanding of your nutritional requirements at a foundational level, which may contribute to your risk for disease, while simultaneously and positively impacting your overall health and well-being.

Who should run the Vibrant micronutrient test?

If you are experiencing:

  • Advanced aging
  • Stress, feeling tired, or chronic fatigue
  • Depression

If you suffer from:

  • Chronic diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, and/or arthritis
  • Skin problems
  • Numbness/tingling in your hands or feet
  • Weakened Immune system
  • Digestive Issues/disorders like celiac, wheat sensitivity, IBS, IBD, and SIBO

If you have a history of:

  • Long-term use of prescription medications
  • Poor diet
  • Obesity

If you are someone who is a:

  • Athletic competitor/exercise regularly
  • Vegan or vegetarian

Vibrant Wellness Food Sensitivity Testing

Food sensitivities are responses to certain foods that occur hours to days after they are consumed. Abdominal pain, gas, bloating, nausea, eczema, joint pain, insomnia and swelling may be commonly associated symptoms. Chronic conditions/illnesses associated with food sensitivities include and are not limited to:

  • Digestive disorders
  • Migraines
  • Mood/attention deficit disorders
  • Weight gain
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Skin disorders
  • Obesity
  • Bronchitis and asthma symptoms
  • Autoimmunity
  • Intestinal Permeability (leaky gut)

Vibrant Wellness is the only company to utilize a chemiluminescent method of detecting food sensitivities on a silicon chip. This proprietary technology allows for the highest sensitivity of detection. Vibrant tests for IgG and IgA antibodies to food.  These are delayed sensitivities which can take up to 72 hours to appear.  

  • IgG antibodies are the most common form of immunologic mediated food responses.  Most food sensitivity testing only include an IgG response.
  • IgA antibodies provide protection from mucosal damage. Elevated levels may indicate mucosal damage.
  • If IgG reactions are negative and you are still symptomatic, IgA reactivity may help provide answers.  

This test identifies both IgG and IgA reactivity to 96 of the most commonly consumed foods including dairy, meat, seafood, fruits, vegetables, grains, legumes, nuts, nightshades, and more.

Hydrogen/Methane breath test for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)

 

Glucose and lactulose breath test methods for assessing numerous health disorders

 

SIBO (Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth) is a condition in which abnormally large numbers of bacteria – the types that are normally found in the large intestine – are present in the small intestine. When not functioning properly, the migrating motor complex (MMC) fails to effectively sweep intestinal contents into the colon during periods of fasting. Once in the small intestine, these bacteria proliferate and feed off carbohydrates from food, creating fermentation gases, specifically methane and hydrogen. SIBO breath testing measures these gases.

 

SIBO can be a cause of many health problems, including diarrhea, abdominal pain, and protein/fat malabsorption. Common conditions associated with SIBO are nausea, flatulence, diarrhea, constipation, malnutrition, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Leaky Gut Syndrome, Acid Reflux, Rosacea, Fibromyalgia, GERD, etc.

To see if this is an issue for you, a hydrogen/methane breath test  can be done to assess your bacterial growth in the small intestine.

 

*Your test includes a 15 minute Interpretation of your results with Michelle Ross, Director of Clinical Services. Please Note: The test interpretation consultation must take place within 3 months of placing the test order.
Additional DescriptionMore Details

Hydrogen/Methane breath test is a reliable and convenient method to help in assessing and classifying dysbiosis and SIBO.



BioHealth provides high-quality SIBO testing services:

  • Non-invasive breath collection
  • Lactulose and Glucose challenge
  • Lactulosechallenge to detect bacterial overgrowth in the distal small intestine
  • Glucose challenge for higher specificity in the upper small intestine
  • 3-hour collection method reveals SIBO in patients with slow transit times

What does This SIBO Breath Test Measure?



Hydrogen – Bacteria produce hydrogen through the process of fermentation of unabsorbed carbohydrates. A small amount of hydrogen is normally produced from limited amounts of unabsorbed carbohydrate reaching the colon. However, large amounts of hydrogen may be produced if there is malabsorption of carbohydrates and/or bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine, allowing a larger amount of hydrogen to reach the colon. The hydrogen produced by the bacteria is absorbed through the wall of the small and large intestines. The hydrogen-containing blood travels to the lungs, where the hydrogen is released and exhaled in the breath. Elevated hydrogen levels tend to be associated with IBS-D (diarrhea) and faster transit times.



Methane – About 15 percent to 30 percent of people have gut flora that contain Methanobrevibacter smithii, which converts four atoms of hydrogen into one molecule of methane. These subjects may not exhale much hydrogen in the breath test despite having SIBO or carbohydrate malabsorption, as excess hydrogen produced as a result of fermentation is converted into methane. Elevated methane levels tend to be associated with IBS-C (constipation) and slower transit times. Both hydrogen and methane are produced by bacteria and are not a normal product of human metabolism. Too much hydrogen, methane or both is a positive test for bacterial overgrowth of the small intestine.

MRT®170 Blood Test for Food and Chemical Sensitivities – LEAP (Lifestyle Eating And Performance)

Mediator Release Testing, MRT®, is a functional measurement of immunological pathways activated by food and food chemicals in the diet. It measures the inflammatory response and subtle changes in our immune cells (lymphocytes, neutrophils, monocytes, and eosinophils) as they release chemical mediators (a substance released from cells, e.g., cytokines, histamine, leukotrienes, prostaglandins, etc.), that regulate or cause physiologic consequences during an immune response to an antigen. It’s the release of these chemical mediators that leads to the negative clinical effects a person with a food sensitivity experiences.

The measurement of these chemical mediators is obtained after a food or food-chemical exposure and calculates these changes as either “non-reactive,” “moderately-reactive,” or “reactive,” based on the level of inflammation induced from the exposure. The immune mediator release, which brings about inflammation, is the key event that leads to negative symptoms.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Millions of Americans suffer from food sensitivities that can contribute to inflammation, pain and various symptoms that can drastically reduce their quality of life. Without question, food sensitivities and allergic reactions to foods and food chemicals are on the rise making diagnostic testing an important way to identify adverse immunological responses to various foods and chemicals. Traditional medical tests are often not able to identify sensitivities and only look for full blown allergic (IgE) responses.

Adverse immune reactions to foods contribute to chronic conditions such as autoimmune issues, IBS and IBD, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, lupus, GERD or acid reflux, sinusitis, asthma, autism, ADD, etc. Research shows that the following symptoms can also be triggered by food sensitivities: weight gain or loss, anxiety, depression, brain fog, lack of focus and/or concentration, digestive disorders such as chronic diarrhea, migraines, joint and muscle pain, skin conditions, fatigue, insomnia, slow wound healing and an inability to recover effectively from exercise, etc.

It can take time for our immune system to respond and we may not feel the effects of a reactive food for up to 72 hours after ingestion. The fact that a person may not feel symptoms for hours, or even days, after ingestion, makes it more difficult for a connection to be made (e.g., a headache felt today and the pizza eaten two days ago). A specific food can elicit a very different response for each individual. A strawberry can cause a skin breakout for one person and not another. Any person can develop a sensitivity to any food, even foods considered to be nourishing and healthy. Sometimes a “reactive” food (e.g., dairy) can be easy to identify. Unfortunately, a chemical like solanine, found in nightshades like tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant and even spices, may not be so easy to pinpoint.

The MRT® 170 panel consists of 141 foods and 29 chemicals commonly found in the American diet. The single factor that all food sensitivities and all food-induced immune reactions have in common is the proinflammatory and proalgesic (related to or causing pain) mediator release from white cells. MRT® aims to measure the levels of inflammation. Additionally, there are seven different possible types of immune reactions to foods; meaning that a problematic food or food chemical can activate the immune system in one of seven different ways. MRT® accounts for all seven types of food sensitivity reactions. Even the most popular food sensitivity blood test available, the ELISA IgG, can only detect one out of the seven different types of reactions.
Research shows that:

  • MRT® is able to distinguish between symptomatic and asymptomatic populations
  • MRT® correlates with inflammation and symptoms
  • Diets based on MRT® show significant symptom reduction
  • MRT® has excellent real-world reproducibility


The LEAP Eating Plan is a personalized nutritional plan based on your MRT® results. Not only does MRT® give insight into inflammation provoking foods and food chemicals, but more importantly MRT® identifies your BEST foods – the foods that form the basis of your LEAP Eating Plan. Simply put, MRT® gives you information you can’t get any other way, and that information directly translates into a targeted nutrition plan that is personalized to meet your needs.

The goal of the LEAP Eating Plan is to address food sensitivities and help you achieve the maximum outcomes in the shortest period of time. For many people, following a personalized LEAP Eating Plan has shown significant symptom reduction.

In the past an elimination diet by trial and error was required to figure out which foods were causing symptoms. Fortunately, a LEAP Eating Plan can help you quickly overcome even the most troublesome food sensitivity related issues.

LEAP-170 Mediator Release Test (MRT®) – Food Sensitivity Screen Kit includes:
  • Test kit mailed directly to you with pre-paid FedEx return mailer

Doctor’s Data Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology x3 (days)

Gastrointestinal (GI) complaints are among the most common reasons that patients seek medical care.   Symptoms associated with GI disorders include persistent diarrhea, constipation, bloating, indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome and malabsorption.  The Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology x3 (days) is an invaluable non-invasive diagnostic assessment that permits an objective way to evaluate the status of beneficial and imbalanced commensal bacteria including Clostridium species, pathogenic bacteria, yeast/fungus and parasites.

*Your test includes a 30 minute Interpretation of your results with Michelle Ross, Director of Clinical Services. Please Note: The test interpretation consultation must take place within 3 months of placing the test order.

(Price includes collection kit and second day FedEx return shipping for US orders)  There is a $55 additional drop ship charge on all International orders.  These tests are not available in Iran, North Korea, Cuba, Russia or Ukraine.

Gastrointestinal (GI) complaints are among the most common reasons that patients seek medical care.   Symptoms associated with GI disorders include persistent diarrhea, constipation, bloating, indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome and malabsorption.   The Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology x3 may be used to assess digestive and absorptive functions, the presence of opportunistic pathogens and to monitor the efficacy of therapeutic remediation of GI disorders. The Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology x3 (days) is an invaluable non-invasive diagnostic assessment that permits an objective way to evaluate the status of beneficial and imbalanced commensal bacteria including Clostridium species, pathogenic bacteria, yeast/fungus and parasites.   Precise identification of pathogenic species and susceptibility testing greatly facilitates selection of the most appropriate pharmaceutical or natural treatment agent(s). Important information regarding the efficiency of digestion and absorption can be gleaned from the measurement of the fecal levels of elastase (pancreatic exocrine sufficiency), muscle and vegetable fibers, carbohydrates, and steatocrit (% total fat). Inflammation can significantly increase intestinal permeability and compromise assimilation of nutrients.   The extent of inflammation, whether caused by pathogens or inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), can be assessed and monitored by examination of the levels of biomarkers such as lysozyme, lactoferrin, white blood cells and mucus.  These markers can be used to differentiate between inflammation associated with potentially life threatening inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which requires life long treatment, and less severe inflammation that can be associated with the presence of enteroinvasive pathogens.   Lactoferrin is only markedly elevated prior to and during the active phases of IBD, but not with IBS. Monitoring fecal lactoferrin levels in patients with IBD can therefore facilitate timely treatment of IBD, and the test can be ordered separately.   Since the vast majority of secretory IgA (sIgA) is normally present in the GI tract where it prevents binding of pathogens and antigens to the mucosal membrane, it is essential to know the status of sIgA in the gut.   sIgA is the only bona fide marker of humoral immune status in the GI tract. Cornerstones of good health include proper digestion of food, assimilation of nutrients, exclusion of pathogens and timely elimination of waste.   To obtain benefits from food that is consumed, nutrients must be appropriately digested and then efficiently absorbed into portal circulation.   Microbes, larger sized particles of fiber, and undigested foodstuffs should remain within the intestinal lumen.   Poor digestion and malabsorption of vital nutrients can contribute to degenerative diseases, compromised immune status, and nutritional deficiencies.   Impairment of the highly specific nutrient uptake processes, or compromised GI barrier function (as in “leaky gut syndrome”) can result from a number of causes including:   low gastric acid production, chronic maldigestion, food allergen impact on bowel absorptive surfaces, bacterial overgrowth or imbalances (dysbiosis); pathogenic bacteria, yeast or parasites and related toxic irritants, and the use of NSAID’s and antibiotics.   Impairment of intestinal functions can contribute to the development of food allergies, systemic illnesses, autoimmune disease, and toxic overload from substances that are usually kept in the confines of the bowel for elimination. Efficient remediation of GI dysfunctions incorporates a comprehensive guided approach that should include consideration of elimination of pathogens and exposure to irritants, supplementation of hydrochloric acid, pancreatic enzymes and pre- and probiotics, and repair of the mucosal barrier. IMPORTANT INFORMATION – Please read and follow the below instructions. Doctor’s Data Comprehensive Stool Analysis with Parasitology x3 Instructions Follow all directions included in the test kit.  On day 3, you must induce diarrhea and collect a purged stool sample.  Parasites live in the intestinal lining and not in the stool, so sampling only the last few inches of stool often misses them.  Submitting a purged sample increases detection of parasites by forcing them out of the bowel lining. Purging involves drinking a laxative to induce diarrhea. Some laxatives may interfere with parasite morphology.  Use one of the following products for inducing diarrhea.

  • Fleets Phospho-Soda – purchase from your local pharmacy.  If Fleets Phospho-Soda is unavailable, speak to a pharmacist about what product is recommended for a “purged stool sample”.
  • Magnesium citrate – the product is called Natural Calm [http://www.calmnatural.com/natural-calm-16oz] and can be purchased online or at a Natural Foods Store.
    • Take 30g of the Natural Calm powder.  Stir it into water and drink.
    • Take the night before collecting the day 3 sample, or in the morning on day 3,
½ – 1 hour before breakfast. Important Instructions:
  • You need a thorough bowel movement – it needs to run like water.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Do not use castor oil or salt water to induce diarrhea.
Collect the first watery bowel movement once diarrhea has been induced.  This provides a much better opportunity to test positive for these hard to find parasites.

Total Immunoglobulins (IgA, IgE, IgG, IgM)

When measuring antibodies to identify an immune reaction, one important factor is to determine whether the immunoglobulin (antibody) mechanism is working optimally in your body. Antibody tests, such as Cyrex, measure an immunoglobulin response. Adequate immunoglobulin status will ensure that functional testing is accurate and will not result in false-negatives.

Total Immunoglobulin (IgA, IgE, IgG, and IgM) Blood Test, therefore, is a critical first step prior to ordering any additional antibody testing (such as Cyrex).

A Total Immunoglobulin (IgA, IgE, IgG, and IgM) Blood Test can be done to measure the level of each category of immunoglobulins. When the ‘Big Guns’ of your immune system are called into action, there are different branches that may respond (e.g., Total IgA for Marines, Total IgG for the Army, Total IgM for the Air Force, IgE for Navy, etc.). When we test to see if one of the Branches has been called out (e.g., an IgA response) we make the assumption the “Marines” are well-funded and well-equipped to respond.

Immunoglobulin deficiency, on the other hand, means that you are not producing adequate levels of antibodies to that branch of the “Armed Forces”. If the “Marines” have been deployed to many different locations at the same time, if they’ve been overtaxed and underfunded, their numbers may not be adequate to respond to the stress (the invader). Thus a test of the Marines (e.g., Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies IgA on Cyrex Array 5) may come back negative due to immunodeficiency or immunosuppression. There is a problem, but the immune system cannot identify it or respond appropriately.

The blood draw will take place at a LabCorp draw site. To confirm if you have a LabCorp draw site near you, please visit http://labcorp.com

**This order does NOT include a test interpretation.**

**If you would like a test interpretation, we recommend purchasing The Functional Medicine Discovery Program (which includes the Total Immunoglobulin Test and a 30-minute test interpretation consult).**

Orders for Total Immunoglobulins (IgA, IgE, IgG, IgM)  (LabCorp) accepted from United States only.

Total Immunoglobulins (IgA, IgE, IgG, IgM) from LabCorp  is not available in the states of New York, New Jersey, Maryland and Rhode Island.

Total Immunoglobulins (IgA, IgE, IgG, IgM) from LabCorp is not contracted with any insurance provider.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

We recommend this panel to anyone concerned about: • the competence of their immunoglobulin response mechanism, “Is it compromised, suppressed, or just plain ‘worn out’?” • their immunoglobulin production. • their Cyrex panel results due to multiple antibody markers that are below normal (e.g., <0.5). • confirming that Cyrex test results are not showing a ‘false negative’ due to poor immunoglobulin response capabilities. Any of the above could interfere with the accuracy of Cyrex test results identifying the state of your immune response. Total immunoglobulin testing can help to identify immunodeficiency and/or immunosuppression. A person can be born with an immunodeficiency or acquire it through: infection repeated antibiotic use steroid use (including steroid inhalers) disease malnutrition burns long-term, low-level demands increased immunoglobulin response as a side effect of different pharmaceuticals that can suppress the immune system An immunodeficiency could cause your test results to be inaccurate, giving a false negative. If you are concerned that you may not be producing adequate levels of antibodies, we recommend that you order this test before ordering your Cyrex Array/s. Or if your Cyrex results have come back and you just don’t believe the negative test results, a Total Immunoglobulin test for IgA, IgG and IgM will tell you if your immune system is responding normally or not.

Array 2, 3X, 4 – The Gut Food Combo

Three tests in one! 

The Array 2, 3X, 4 – The Gut Food Combo is a savings of $294.

Important: Before ordering this test, please read the above, “Important Information about Cyrex Antibody Testing”

Array 2: Intestinal Antigenic Permeability Screen
A test that identifies how gluten is robbing you of gut health.

Gluten causes inflammation in the gut, which can eventually lead to intestinal permeability, or “leaky gut.” Leaky gut allows undigested food particles, bacteria, and other pathogens to escape into the bloodstream where they can trigger allergies, sensitivities, and inflammation in other parts of the body.  This test pinpoints which of these is causing leaky gut so your practitioner knows what to specifically target for faster and more efficient gut repair.

Cyrex Array 3X: Wheat/Gluten Proteome Reactivity & Autoimmunity

More than one wheat protein can cause Gluten Sensitivity – Cyrex Labs tests for multiple peptides of gluten

Being Gluten Sensitive isn’t as black-and-white as once thought.  Actually, gluten is a misnomer – “gliadin” is the portion of wheat that triggers an immune response in people (since “gluten” is commonly used I will stick with that term).  It also has been discovered that wheat is made up of more than 100 different components that can cause a reaction, not just one (gliadin).

Cyrex Array 4: Gluten-Associated Sensitivity and Cross-Reactive Foods

In cross-reactivity, the body may mistake another food for gluten and react accordingly.  Array 4 tests for 24 different foods that may be causing cross-reactivity or are newly introduced to the diet or over-consumed favorites.

One of the most frustrating scenarios for both the practitioner and the patient is when a gluten-free diet fails to have any effect on a person who seems so clearly gluten sensitive. Newer research shows this may be due to cross-reactivity.

Array 2 is an antibody assessment of the intestinal barrier integrity and bacterial endotoxins (lipopolysaccharides), tight-junction proteins (occludin, zonulin) and cell cytoskeleton (actomyosin) and identifies both transcellular (through the cells) and paracellular (between the cells) routes of intestinal barrier penetration (leaky gut) by large molecules with a capacity to challenge the immune system. Gluten causes inflammation in the gut, which can eventually lead to intestinal permeability, or “leaky gut.” Leaky gut allows undigested food particles, bacteria, and other pathogens to escape into the bloodstream where they can trigger allergies, sensitivities, and inflammation in other parts of the body. This is a main reason why people come back sensitive to many foods.  Several different mechanisms cause leaky gut:
  • Breakdown of cells
  • Loosening of the junctures of the gut lining
  • Bacterial infection
This test pinpoints which of these is causing leaky gut so your practitioner knows what to specifically target for faster and more efficient gut repair.

Being Gluten Sensitive isn’t as black-and-white as once thought.  Actually, gluten is a misnomer – “gliadin” is the portion of wheat that triggers an immune response in people (since “gluten” is commonly used I will stick with that term).  It also has been discovered that wheat is made up of more than 100 different components that can cause a reaction, not just one (gliadin). Until now testing for Gluten Sensitivity has only been against one of those components, alpha gliadin. Through extensive research Cyrex pinpointed the twelve components of wheat that most often provoke an immune response. This new test greatly expands the parameters of gluten sensitivity testing, catching those who may have previously tested negative because they don’t react to the alpha gliadin. A ‘false negative’ occurs when the test results says a condition is not present, when in reality there is a problem.  Many forms of standard testing for celiac disease or gluten sensitivity do not include the right markers or enough of the right markers.  Using Cyrex Array 3 allows for more accurate results with fewer ‘false negatives’. Opioid testing Array 3 screens for antibodies to the opioids produced from wheat called Gluteomorphins and Prodynorphins.  Gluten can have a drug-like opiate effect on an individual.  Antibodies to gluteomorphin and prodynorphin can indicate that gluten is affecting your brain.  Some people have enzymes in their digestive tract that break gluten down into opioids that act like heroin or morphine.  Embarking on a gluten-free diet can cause terrible withdrawal symptoms in these people.  One practitioner tells of a patient whose withdrawal symptoms were so severe she went to the emergency room. Another problem with opioids is they disrupt brain function by attaching to receptor sites normally meant for neurotransmitters.  Neurotransmitters are brain chemicals that help dictate our personality, moods, behavior, bodily function, and more. This opioid effect on neurotransmitter receptors explains why gluten plays a role in so many cases of ADD/ADHD, autism, or behavioral problems in children; or brain fog, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, anorexia and migraines in adults.  When one mother put her autistic son on a gluten-free diet, he began eating the binding out of books as he was so desperate for his gluten-opioid “fix.” Lectins Array 3 also includes testing for antibodies to the wheat lectin Wheat Germ Agglutinin (WGA).  WGAs are lectins or carbohydrate-binding proteins with a capacity to bind to many cells and tissue antigens.  Lectins can bind to cells involved in the immune system and induce toxic damage, inflammation and autoimmunity. Enzymes Array 3 includes testing for antibodies to enzymes:  Tissue Transglutaminases -2, -3 and -6 and Gliadin-Tranglutaminase Complex.  Transglutaminases are a family of enzymes that form protein polymers, like scaffolding, which are vital in the formation of barriers and stable structures such as gut tissue.  Antibodies may appear in serum before the clinical onset of symptoms. Gliadin-Transglutaminase IgG can assist with diagnosing Celiac Disease. Tissue Transglutaminase-2 (tTG2) is commonly recognized for being an effective diagnostic test for celiac disease.  Transglutaminase is an enzyme in the digestive tract targeted in an autoimmune attack triggered by gluten. tTG2 antibodies indicate gluten is attacking gut tissue through an autoimmune attack. Tissue Transglutaminase-3 (tTG3) is express mainly in the epidermis (skin disorders) and to a lesser extent in the placenta and the brain. Tissue Transglutaminase-6 (tTG6) is expressed in neural tissue.  tTG6 may be involved in the pathogenesis of gluten reactivity-related neurological dysfunction.

One of the most frustrating scenarios for both the practitioner and the patient is when a gluten-free diet fails to have any effect on a person who seems so clearly gluten sensitive. Newer research shows this may be due to cross-reactivity. In cross-reactivity, the body mistakes another food for gluten and reacts accordingly.  Array 4 tests for 24 different foods that may be causing cross-reactivity or are newly introduced to the diet or over-consumed favorites. Dairy – Cross-reactivity is common with dairy as its structure so closely resembles that of gluten.  In fact 50% of people who are sensitive to gluten are also sensitive to dairy. This panel has great clinical significance as it can explain why people still react even after giving up gluten and dairy.

Cyrex Array 5: Multiple Autoimmune Reactivity Screen

Important: Before ordering this test, please read the above, “Important Information about Cyrex Antibody Testing”

Which parts of the body are affected by a gluten-sensitivity?

People typically shrug off the possibility of gluten sensitivity by saying, “I don’t have any digestive problems.” Little do they know that gluten produces digestive symptoms in only a minority of people (1 out of 8). For the majority, gluten can damage the brain, the heart, the skin, the respiratory tract or the joints. Cyrex Array 5 can be useful for Patients who:

  • Have been diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, as they commonly develop additional autoimmune conditions
  • With chronic increased intestinal permeability, which is the gateway for environmentally-induced autoimmune disorders.

The Cyrex Array 5 is an economical and effective way to assess possible tissue damage to multiple organs of the body and will help you assess predictive antibodies. Elevated numbers of antibodies, known as Predictive Antibodies, are measurable up to ten years before the clinical onset of the disease. Identification of pathogenesis at this stage allows for the possible arrest or even reversal of disease progression. Array 5 – Systemic Autoimmune Reactivity Screen™ looks at multiple tissues commonly targeted by auto-antibodies, including Cardiovascular, Endocrine, Joint, Gastrointestinal and more.

Cyrex Array 14: Mucosal Immune Reactivity Screen and Total Secretory IgA Mucosal Combo

Important: If this is your first time ordering Cyrex Array 14, we recommend ordering the Mucosal Immune Reactivity Screen and Total Secretory IgA Mucosal Combo to confirm the accuracy of your results.

Cyrex Array 14 is a very cost effective, easy, and non-invasive method, to measure mucosal immune reactivity to a range of exogenous and endogenous antigens. The categories of antigens include assessments for intestinal dysfunction, food immune reactivity, gut dysbiosis, infection and possible enteric nervous system autoimmune reactivity. This mucosal immune response is the body’s first immune system reaction. If steps to bring balance back to the mucosal immune response are not taken, the immune reactivity may result in a breach of the intestinal barrier, followed by a systemic immune reaction. The inflammation of systemic autoantibodies contributes to the progression of autoimmune and neuroautoimmune reactivities.

Cyrex Array 14 can be useful for clients who:

  • Have chronic inflammatory bowel condition
  • Have a family history of autoimmune disease
  • Suppressed Total Immunogloblulin IgA and IgG

Cyrex Array 14 can be used to:

  • Evaluate mechanisms of compromised immune tolerance.
  • Evaluate possible outcomes of compromised mucosal tolerance, such as: intestinal barrier dysfunction, food and chemical immune reactivity, and autoimmunity.

Antigens Tested (IgA + IgM combined) on Cyrex Array 14 include:

  • Lipopolysaccharides
  • Occludin/Zonulin
  • Actomyosin
  • ASCA/ANCA
  • Calprotectin
  • Native + Deamidated
  • Alpha-Gliadin-33-mer

Total Secretory IgA

Mucosal surfaces are the first lines of defense against invasion and colonization by pathogenic microorganisms. The principal molecule of mucosal immune responses is Secretory IgA (SIgA), a complex of polymeric IgA and the epithelial cell-derived secretory component. Upon activation, B-cells in the mucosa form these complexes, which, through polymeric IgA receptors (pIgR), bind to the mucus layer protecting the gut epithelium, thereby preventing antigen attachment to the intestinal wall and its subsequent penetration of the intestinal lining. Mechanisms of defense include agglutination, mucus trapping, neutralization of enzymes, toxins and viruses and interaction with innate anti-microbial factors. Immunoglobulin A is the only isotype that can be selectively passed across mucosal walls to reach the lumens of organs lined with mucosal cells.

Array 20: Blood Brain Barrier Permeability

Important: Before ordering this test, please read the above, “Important Information about Cyrex Antibody Testing”

Blood Brain Barrier Permeability

The blood brain barrier (BBB) is a physical barrier formed by the arrangement of endothelial cells and tight junctions that line the capillaries which supply blood to the brain. It is a highly selective barrier that restricts the movement of molecules from the blood across to the brain. The BBB naturally permits the passage of essential metabolites, small hydrophobic (lipid soluble) molecules like oxygen, carbon dioxide, hormones, etc. Acting like a filter, the BBB prevents the entry of infectious agents, toxins and other environmental triggers into the nervous system.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Barrier Protein IgG + IgA combined ( CPT CODE : 83516 )
Blood Brain Barrier Protein IgM ( CPT CODE : 83516-59 )
CLINICAL SIGNIFICANCE:
When the BBB is inflamed, the tight junctions open and produce a condition called increased BBB permeability or increasingly referred to as “leaky brain” (not the same as leaky brain syndrome). Xenobiotics, viruses, bacterial toxins and other molecules greater than 400 daltons in size, which are normally excluded, can penetrate the BBB. Penetration of the BBB by very large molecules such as LPS or even intact viruses may first cause neuroinflammation, followed by neuroautoimmunity with peripheral or central nervous system (CNS) symptoms.
Disruption of brain barrier results first in the release of BBB proteins and then in the formation of IgG, IgM or IgA antibodies against tight junctions and BBB proteins. Production of these antibodies against the BBB and other neural cell antigens from a cell-mediated and humoral immune response may indicate a pathological alteration of the protective brain barrier. Continued opening of the BBB and the persistent release of autoantigens for an extended period in adulthood may cause neuronal cell death and an early cognitive decline. Repeated head trauma and traumatic brain injury (TBI) associated with accidents and some sports, such as football or hockey, have also been shown to damage the BBB and the astrocytes.

Diagnostic Solutions GI-MAP™

The Gastrointestinal Microbial Assay Plus (GI-MAP) was designed to assess an individual’s microbiome from a single stool sample, with particular attention to microbes that may be disturbing normal microbial balance and may contribute to changes in the gastrointestinal (GI) flora or illness. The panel is a comprehensive collection of microbial targets as well as immune and digestive markers. It screens for pathogenic bacteria, commensal bacteria, opportunistic pathogens, fungi, viruses, and parasites. It primarily uses a quantitative PCR (polymerase chain reaction) method, that is one of the most powerful and sensitive gene analysis techniques available. With qPCR, all of the organisms are run separately, and in duplicate, which makes it possible to measure each organism accurately. All results are quantitative instead of qualitative (positive or negative), giving individuals greater depth in understanding their microbiome environment.

Your test includes a 30 minute Interpretation of your results with Michelle Ross, Director of Clinical Services.  Please Note: The test interpretation consultation must take place within 3 months of placing the test order.

Price includes collection kit and second day FedEx return shipping for US orders. There is a $55 additional drop ship charge on all international orders. The lab must receive the sample within 6 days of collection. The sample is no longer viable after 6 days.

Functional Blood Chemistry Panel

What is a blood chemistry panel?

A blood chemistry analysis (i.e.: a blood test) provides key information about one’s health within various systems of the body, and as a whole. It allows a healthcare provider to assess the degree of health or disease in a patient, and to screen and identify imbalances in physiological metabolism and function.
