Cyrex Labs has revolutionized the world of gluten intolerant testing. Their arrays 1-4 use advanced technology to find gluten intolerance, leaky gut syndrome, gluten cross-reactive foods, and the potential for autoimmune celiac disease. However, they haven’t stopped there.
Cyrex Labs has now developed a new test that will screen for one of the major issues associated with gluten, autoimmunity. Autoimmunity is a process where the body’s immune system attacks normal healthy tissue. The Cyrex Array #5.
The Purpose of the Array #5
It is well-known that gluten not only can trigger autoimmunity but can fuel the “autoimmune fire”. Studies show that those many who test positive for one autoimmune condition also test positive for others. Furthermore, it is well published in the literature (however not widely known in the clinical world) that these auto-antibodies can be raised for many years, even decades before symptoms occur.
Cyrex Labs has taken this information and created an autoimmune screening test panel that looks at auto-antibodies to multiple areas of the body. Cyrex Labs Array #5 is extremely important for those with a known gluten sensitivity, and in my clinical experience, ANY known food sensitivity. Why? Gluten, along with other foods, can produce long-term inflammation in those with food sensitivities. This long-standing inflammation is ultimately what “confuses” the immune system and promotes the attack on healthy tissues.
What We Know About Cyrex’s Array #5
We also know what antibodies will be in the new autoimmune screen. Here is the list of the different body systems that are included in the test:
