ALWAYS CALL YOUR DOCTOR OR 911 IMMEDIATELY IF YOU THINK YOU MAY HAVE A MEDICAL OR PSYCHIATRIC EMERGENCY.
Risks and discomforts associated with blood testing are very low, however a small percentage of people may experience fainting or light-headedness, hematoma (blood accumulating under the skin), excessive bleeding or infection (a slight risk whenever the skin is broken). The possibility of these events occurring is very low.
Drawing blood from the arm can be uncomfortable as a result of bruising or soreness, which in some cases can last for multiple days. In rare instances an infection can result. If any Fuelary customer feels any uncomfortable symptoms during a blood draw they must tell the phlebotomist or whoever performing the blood draw immediately. If any Fuelary customer is concerned about any abnormal, painful or uncomfortable feelings they are experiencing after a blood draw they should consult their doctor.
It is possible that a Fuelary customer may have a disease or condition even though their test results are within the normal range. Likewise, it is possible that a Fuelary customer may have test results outside the normal range, but not result in any disease or condition. However, if a Fuelary customer consults their doctor or a Fuelary staff doctor on their values that are outside the normal range they may be recommended to consult further testing, which will result in additional costs associated with testing and consultation.
All supplement, diet and lifestyle recommendations provided to Fuelary customers are based on their blood testing results. However, in agreeing to Fuelary terms and conditions Fuelary customers agree that following Fuelary’s supplement, diet and lifestyle recommendations are done so at their own risk and it is possible that doing so may cause or exacerbate certain medical conditions. If at any time a Fuelary customer feels unwell, ill or abnormal they should consult medical help immediately.
