The FM/a® Test is the first and currently the only definitive blood test to objectively diagnose fibromyalgia. It is the result of award-winning research and independent clinical studies performed at the University of Illinois College of Medicine. Since 2012, the FM/a® fibromyalgia test has successfully diagnosed thousands of patients
Patients with fibromyalgia have been shown to have an irregular pattern of chemokine and cytokine proteins in their immune system. The FM/a® fibromyalgia test analyzes these patterns in the immune system’s white blood cells. Test results are based on a 1-100 scoring system, with scores above 50 indicating a positive fibromyalgia diagnosis.
Yes, it is covered by Medicare and most major insurance companies. We will contact your insurance company’s billing department to confirm your coverage before you have the test.
