Welcome! 
On this page, you'll find a list of my favorite lab tests you'll often find me talking about on my blog, in emails and on social.

Cyrex
Autoimmune disorders are fast growing heath issues. Cyrex can help determine the underlying causes and triggers to give you a fuller picture of your immune health. 

Array 3X
Wheat/Gluten Proteome Reactivity And Autoimmunity™
 
A comprehensive wheat/gluten reactivity test, which assists in the identification of wheat reactivity, non-celiac gluten sensitivity, Celiac disease, food opioid reactivity, intestinal barrier damage, and wheat-related autoimmunity.

Array 4
Gluten-Associated Cross-Reactive Foods & Foods Sensitivity™
 
This is the test that helped me understand why a traditional gluten-free diet was not helping. I continually refer back to this one. 

  • have Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity or Celiac disease?
  • experience limited improvements or are non-responsive on a gluten-free diet?
  • have gut dysbiosis, which appears to be resistant to standard therapy?
  • have Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitivity or Celiac Disease and also sensitive to dairy products?
Array 10
Multiple Food Immune Reactivity Screen (180 foods)

  • Heat Modified Protein Reactivity™: Cooking foods above 118 F changes the protein structure and may change the antigenicity
  • Cross-reactive Pan-antigen Isolates: cross-reactive such as food aquaporin and shrimp tropomyosin, which are known to cross-react with human tissues, as well as pan-antigens such as parvalbumin and latex hevein
  • Multiple food protein interactions: reactivity to common food combinations
  • Large Gum Molecules: many gluten-free products replace gluten with gums to hold things together. Due to their large size may cause immune reactivity
  • Lectins and Agglutinins: tests reactivity to these plant-derived binding isolates
  • Tissue Bound Artificial Food Coloring Reactivity: assesses antibodies to these small-molecule chemicals that are already bound to human tissue
  • Amplified Antigenetic Proteins and Peptides: detects immune reactivity to a specific peptide within a whole food
  • Oil Protein Isolation: contrary to popular belief oils do contain proteins called Oleosins
  • Enzyme Mediated Protein Reactivity: rather than just testing the meat this tests for antibodies to "meat glue" that is used to turn smaller pieces of meat into one large piece of meat
  • Dual Antibody Detection: combined panel for IgA and IgG to reduce the possibiity of missing reactivity
Array Panel (3X/4/10)
Combined in one convenient panel

IGeneX
With IGeneX you will receive the most accurate results of your tests. This is the one that was recommended to me and is also where I did a retest to confirm Lyme's was no longer in an active state in my body.
Lyme Western Blot Test IgG

Lyme IgG antibodies are produced four-to-six weeks following infection and can persist for years.

The Lyme Western Blot IgG is a sensitive indicator of an exposure to B. burgdorferi. IgG antibody is typically present a few months following the initial infection. Lyme Western Blot IgG must be performed on any sample with positive or equivocal result for Lyme IgG/IgM antibody serology or Lyme IgG/IgA/IgM IFA.

Lyme Western Blot Test IgM
 
IgM antibodies are the earliest to appear in response to a patient’s exposure to the disease.

The Lyme Western Blot IgM is a very sensitive indicator of exposure to B. burgdorferi. It may be positive as early as 1 week after a tick bite, will usually remain positive for six to eight weeks after initial exposure, and in some patients will remain positive for much longer. Re-exposure will also cause this test to be positive for a brief period of time. For the testing to be complete, it is preferable that the IgM Western Blot be run along with the IgG Western Blot.
 
Lyme Western Blot Test Panel
 
Both, Lyme Western Blot IgG and IgM, are combined in one panel. This is highly recommended to evaluate any acute infections, as well as, any chronic infections that may have gone undetected.
