What is the FIT Test?
The FIT test, or Food Inflammation Test, measure sensitivities to up to 176 different foods, coloring and additives. The test was created by Brent Dorval, Ph. D, who was involved in the creation of the first HIV/AIDS rapid diagnostic assay.
Food Sensitivities are very difficult to identify because the symptoms can be delayed up to 72 hours after eating. They impact more than 100 million people worldwide. Food sensitivities have been implicated in research to be linked to a variety of inflammatory conditions, including anxiety and depression, bloating and stomach pain, joint pain, constipation and diarrhea, libido, sugar cravings, and resistance to weight loss efforts to name a few.
To identify foods that contribute to inflammation, the FIT test uses a simple finger stick and blood spot sample collection technique that can be sent in the mail. It comes in a variety of options including tests for 22, 132, and 176 different foods, colorings, and additives. This makes the test more accessible at different price points.
The testing company, KBMO diagnostics, also provides an easy to use phone app that helps you access your results from the convenience of your phone. The app also offers recipes and a meal plan based off of your results.
