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.

We recommend this panel to anyone concerned about:
the competence of their immunoglobulin response mechanism, feels it is compromised, suppressed, or just plain worn out.
