FOOD INFLAMMATION (SENSITIVITY) TESTING: (F.I.T.)
WE OFFER FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTING HOME KITS IN OUR OFFICE
Testing Method: finger prick
A food test is the most valuable test there is! It is priceless to know what food triggers you have, so when you avoid those triggers it will help speed up everything else you are doing for your health.
Some FOOD SENSITIVITY TESTS cost over $1000 and are not nearly as accurate as KBMO Diagnostics testing. Our most expensive test is $450 and it is one of the most accurate on the market. That is 55% off the price of the other tests out there! If you cannot afford the FIT 176 for $450 then choose one of our lower price tests to start!
The FIT test measures sensitivities of 22, 132, or 176 different foods, colorings and additives spanning most major food groups using a simple finger prick test.
– FIT 22 $150
– FIT 132 $350
– FIT 176 $450
– Zonulin (leaky gut test) $200
*If you add Zonulin test to any FIT test you will get $50 off!
We make the finger prick test kits available at Sansone Chiropractic and the company sets the price. Contact the office for any questions.
FIT 132 and 176 comes with a free personalized meal plan and snacks for 7 days along with a free app.
The FIT Test is a patented, multi-pathway delayed food sensitivity test. The test uses patented technology that measures both IgG and Immune Complexes, the most common food-related pathways in the body. This enables the FIT test to be able to identify, food sensitivities, inflammation and leaky gut from a single test.
Food Sensitivities affect more than 100 million people worldwide. They are very difficult to identify because the symptoms can be delayed up to 72 hours after eating.
Food sensitivities symptoms are also many and varied and we have listed some below from a clinical study:
- Inability to Lose Weight
- Bloating/Stomach Pain
- Joint Pain
- Craving Sugar

Our FIT 132 and 176 come with a customized meal plan to help you avoid your positive foods.
Zonulin Test (aka Leaky Gut)
We now offer Zonulin Testing in addition to Food Sensitivity testing.
Zonulin is a protein that is synthesized in intestinal cells and liver cells. It is a key biomarker for intestinal permeability and is the only regulator of intestinal permeability that is reversible. Zonulin is one of three ways the FIT test can diagnose a leaky gut, along with finding a sensitivity to Candida and multiple Food Sensitivities. It is estimated that anywhere between 50 and 100 percent of food intolerance sufferers have increased intestinal permeability.
Increased intestinal permeability can be caused by food allergies and sensitivities, stress, infections, and low stomach acid, among other causes. Elevated levels of Zonulin are associated with Celiac Disease, Autoimmune disease, and Multiple Sclerosis, in addition to other chronic illnesses.
In a healthy gut, there are healthy cell junctions and good nutrient absorption. In a leaky gut, however, the Villi are damaged, there is poor absorption and the cell junctions are loose. This means that bacteria and unwanted items can pass through the gut, as seen in the picture above.
Zonulin Testing is best performed with your first FIT Test to provide a baseline for the Zonulin levels. This gives you the opportunity to track your progress after implementing an elimination diet based on the FIT Test results. We recommend retesting when you retest your FIT.
IF YOU HAVE A LEAKY GUT— then your body is not really processing all the healthy things you are trying to do! We need to stop and heal your gut first then move to other items such as detoxing or healthy building.
