Patient Information:

2 Hair samples must be dry. Take samples from the area highlighted in the illustration.
3 Using clean stainless steel scissors, cut off hair samples very close to the scalp. Trim the sample so it includes only about one-inch of the newest hair growth (the hair that was closest to your scalp.) Discard remaining hair
4 Place the one-inch sample of new hair growth on the elevated side of the hair scale.
5 Repeat steps 3 and 4, collecting samples from at least seven places within the back portion of the neck until the scale tips. Insufficient hair samples cannot be processed.

Please Note...
Results and information are for personal use only, are not intended to diagnose, cure, mitigate, treat, or prevent disease or other conditions, and are not intended to provide a determination or assessment of the state of health. Many factors influence mineral status, and this product reviews only 20 of these factors. Always consult with a licensed health care professional to interpret screen results and/or make healthcare decisions. This screen was developed and its performance characteristics determined by Great Smokies Diagnostic Laboratory, Inc. It has not been cleared or approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Before You Start...
There are no special diet restrictions for the MineralCheck screen. However, MineralCheck cannot be performed on hair that has been permed, dyed or bleached in the past two months. Also, shampoos with dyes, colorings or special chemicals must be discontinued for three days prior to cutting hair sample. We recommend using Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo three days before collecting sample. Your hair must be dry when collecting the sample.

Care should be used in the evaluation of MineralCheck elemental analysis results. Hair treatments or other external contaminants may affect reported levels of an element. The laboratory washing procedure will remove those elements which are soluble, but some treatments make a permanent bond to the hair and cannot be removed. These contaminants may increase some element levels.

If the hair is short, stainless steel thinning shears may be used. You may find the sample collection process easier to complete with the help of a family member or friend.
