    Recently I paid $1,000+ (ouch) for IgG and IgA food and autoimmune tests. Cyrex labs Arrays 2, 4 & 5 (I guess Cyrex Labs is somehow affiliated with Dr. Kharrazian).

    Is there anything to these types of tests (especially the food sensitivity one) or is it all total BS?

    I think there’s something to it, but I personally wouldn’t want to find out the results.


    Ugh. We paid a few hundred dollars to find out my son had high IgG for all the foods he was eating most.

    Except… that that’s ok, normal even – IgG levels correlate with what you’re exposed to. And apparently, high levels demonstrate high ability to tolerate. Here’s one article, can’t say if it’s accurate:

    But it was enough to annoy me for spending the money and freaking out.

    I don’t know about IgA.


    There are something to those tests, absolutely. But you need to know how to interpret them. What were the antibodies you tested positive for? Supposedly, they’re precursors of actual disease which will manifest after sufficient tissue damage. So you can detect autoimmune antibody attack during the asymptomatic phase and take proper action.

    I’d personally take them if I can afford the cost and know how my body is reacting and whether there are any antibodies that have been activated. Much easier to react then than when symptoms appear, by which time it might be too late for many autoimmune diseases.
