Please read the following Terms & Conditions and check the box below to acknowledge that you understand and agree.
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
These terms and conditions apply to ANY use of StrongStrides personalized blood testing program, including the following components:
Measurement of key blood biomarkers
Individualized training and nutrition recommendations including foods and supplements
Your use of StrongStrides services is voluntary. It is your choice whether to participate or not. You may cancel the service at any time. If for any reason you believe that your use is anything but voluntary, please terminate all use of the service.
PROCEDURES AND PROTOCOL
As part of the process we will collect some information from you. The information collected will include general contact information, age, gender, general health information including information about your diet, vitamins and supplements you take, your physical activities and other important details about yourself.
After registration, you will be directed to one of LabCorp’s testing locations, where you will have your blood drawn and analyzed. You may be required to present proof of identification at the time of the blood draw. Each time you sign up for a blood draw, a small amount of blood will be taken from your arm with a syringe and needle. Your blood sample will then be tested for a number of select vitamins, minerals and metabolites (biomarkers) that will be indicative of your nutritional and physical fitness status. Your results will be reviewed by a licensed chiropractor and sport physiologist. In the event that StrongStrides review of your blood analysis indicates a potential medical problem requiring immediate attention you will be notified and advised to contact your doctor.
RISKS AND DISCOMFORTS
Although the risks and discomforts associated with a blood test are very low, you might be at risk for excessive bleeding, fainting, or feeling light-headed, hematoma (blood accumulating under the skin) or infection (a slight risk any time the skin is broken). While the possibility of this happening is very low, you should still be aware of the possibility
Drawing blood from your arm may cause discomfort or lightheartedness. It also may result in bruising or soreness for a few days. In rare instances, an infection can result. If you feel discomfort or other symptoms, tell the person drawing your blood immediately.
StrongStrides may advise you to have a follow up with your doctor after reviewing the results of your blood test. As a result, you may learn about health conditions and problems or potential health problems that you were not aware of before your participation in StrongStrides blood testing program. You may experience stress, anxiety, or emotional or physical discomfort when you learn about health problems or potential health problems. In addition, you could have a disease or condition even though your test results are in the normal range. You could have test results outside the normal range and still not have a disease or condition. Results outside the normal range, though, could lead to additional cost or discomfort if your physician orders follow-up tests.
Some questions and pieces of information collected as part of StrongStrides may make you feel uncomfortable.
There may also be additional risks to participation that are currently unforeseeable.
Recommendations regarding diet, training, and supplements provided to you by StrongStrides as a result of the blood sample analysis may or may not be beneficial to you and may cause or exacerbate certain medical problems. You are following these recommendations at your own risk. If at any time during the follow-up period you feel unwell or ill you should seek medical help immediately and discontinue StrongStrides recommendations.
