Frequently Asked Questions

Why Would I Have a Blood Test?

Our various blood tests are able to identify deficiencies within the body that may contribute to you being susceptible to certain medical conditions.

Vitamin and mineral deficiencies may also cause you to experience symptoms such as fatigue, regular colds & low moods, and so blood tests are a great diagnostic tool that enables you to know exactly what your body needs.

How is the Sample Collected?

The blood samples are collected in clinic by registered healthcare professionals and taken intravenously through your vein. It is a quick and painless procedure. It is the same process as having a blood test at your local GP surgery.

What is the Difference Between Getting a Blood Test and a DNA test?

The DNA test offered at GAD is a sample taken from the inside of the mouth using a swab against the cheek. The swab sample is then sent in a pre-paid envelope to the lab to be processed.

The DNA test is based on the genes of a person therefore would only be required once in a lifetime as genetic information will not change. The DNA test results are able to identify how the body responds to and metabolises specific nutrients, which is more effective than a blood test in regards to micronutrient requirements.

However, a blood test is able to tell a person the current levels of a particular component within the blood such as vitamins, hormones or electrolytes.

With balancing a healthy lifestyle and focusing on any deficiencies found from the blood test the results can improve over a period of time and a retest to check the levels can be performed.

Do I Need to do Anything to Prepare for my Blood Test?

Before arriving for the blood test we recommend drinking water as dehydration can cause results to be inaccurate and also helps with vein quality when the blood sample is taken.

Who Can Have the Blood Test?

We will only offer blood tests to those over 18 years of age. We will not perform blood tests on children.

How Long Does the Test Take?

The procedure of the blood test will take no longer than 15 minutes with the inclusion of completing the required documents beforehand; But additional time can be used for any questions.

Do I Have to Fill out a Health Screening Beforehand?

Yes, you will fill out a GAD medical questionnaire. This is an important document which will include disclosure of any medical conditions an individual may have, as well as medications and also if you feel well enough to have the blood test taken that day.

When Will I Receive my Results?
