Will immunosuppressive or immunomodulating drugs affect the Wheat Zoomer?

Yes. If you are taking steroids, immunosuppressive medications, biologic agents, or other immunomodulating medications, you may not get an accurate result of your antibody levels on your Wheat Zoomer test. If you are taking any of these medications, you may get falsely lower or falsely higher antibody results. For this reason, to ensure the most accurate results, your ordering provider may recommend testing 14-30 days after discontinuing these medications, or they may recommend testing Total Immunoglobulins (Total IgE, Total IgM, Total IgA, and Total IgG) before testing specific antibody levels for Tickborne diseases. Consult with your ordering provider regarding whether to continue or discontinue any dietary supplements or medications before your test, or whether to test Total Immunoglobulins before the Wheat Zoomer test.
