How the test is done

The mineral deficiency test is measured in plasma (blood). The test is done at home and is done so that you, by poking your finger, can  collect a few drops of blood and then send it to our lab for analysis. Everything you’ll need to take the test is in the kit that will be sent home to you.

Important minerals

Minerals are incorporated in several metabolic pathways to ensure the normal function of cells. For instance, zinc is crucial for the immune system to produce T and B-cells. Magnesium is also essential for muscle contraction and its deficiency leads to physical and mental weakness as well as hyporeflexia. Sadly, many patients experience vague symptoms for years without being diagnosed with mineral deficiency, but with the help of GetTested’s quick checkup, you will get a full report of your minerals’ status and practical tips to optimize your diet to meet the daily requirements.

Instructions

You take the test yourself at home through a so-called capillary blood test. This means that you will have to make a small stick in your finger and squeeze out a few drops of blood on a piece of paper or into a test tube. Your sample is then sent to our lab for analysis and you will receive your answer digitally as soon as the lab has analyzed your sample.

  1. Make a purchase on the website and pay with Swish or card (Visa, AMEX or Mastercard). Easy and safe.

  2.  A test kit is sent to the address you enter when ordering. After your order, we will send home a test kit with instructions. It also comes with a stamped envelope that is mailed to us. It is recommended to send in your sample on a Monday or Tuesday.

  3. Carry out the test according to the instructions included in your test kit and on the web. Our Support can also answer all possible questions, before and after submissions and results.

  4. Send the test kit to our ISO certified lab and wait for results digitally. You will normally receive an answer within 15 working days after our lab has received your sample.
