Pathology Testing Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to stop supplements or medications before the test?

Yes. While Cyrex is unable to provide an exhaustive answer to this question due to the interactive complexities and varieties of medications and patient circumstances, the following has been noted:

a. Immunosuppressant and corticosteroid drugs can reduce antibody production and cause false negative results.
b. Limited assessments on the effects of aspirin, acetaminophen, and antipsychotics on Arrays 1-4 have been performed. No noticeable effects were observed.
c. Inhalers can affect the results of Cyrex's oral fluid testing (Array 14). Wait two weeks after completion of inhalant dosages before collecting the specimen.

Supplements can be continued.

How soon after finishing steroids can a patient do Cyrex testing?

You can exercise the day before a test but take it easy, and don't do high intensity session - I would avoid exercise on the morning of a test.

What if I am allergic to a food, do I still have to eat it?

If you know that you are allergic to a food like gluten, dairy, eggs etc then you don't have to eat it, but this will show negative on the results as you have not been consuming the food before the test.

It is not worth consuming a food that you have a known allergy to as it may cause other health issues.
