Array 10 Multiple Food Immune Reactivity Screen is a truly comprehensive screen for foods including dairy, grains, nuts, beans, vegetables, fruits, fish, seafood, meats, herbs, spices, vegetable gums, beverages, and additives. Other arrays specifically screen for gluten-associated cross-reactive foods and foods sensitivity, intestinal antigenic permeability, diabetic autoimmunity reactivity, neurological autoimmune reactivity, joint autoimmunity, blood brain barrier immunity, and irritable bowel/SIBO autoimmunity.

A 70 year old contractor with normal BMI and healthy eating habits with complaints of “congestion” keeps him up at night. He had an allergy test several years ago, which was done by “skin technique,” and received allergy shots over the course of a year. This was done so long ago he has forgotten the results and thought that since he was eating a healthy diet, he had nothing to worry about. He tried Zyrtec and Afrin with mixed results and his wife was concerned about his snoring. His other medical history was positive for hypertension, hyperlipidemia, fatigue, and arthritis.
