2. The data in the Test Report can only reflect the physical condition of the customer on the date of the test. Changes in the customer’s physical health in the future cannot be directly attributed to the accuracy of the data obtained on the day of blood collection for this test.

3. We recommend pregnant customer to perform this test after giving birth to protect the safety of you and your fetus. If you suspect that you are pregnant, please inform the company and arrange to reschedule.
 
4. We do not provide any medical advice to our customers. Our Services are information-only services, intended to help customers gaining a better understanding of the health risks associated with Alzheimer’s disease. The Agreement is not intended to create any fiduciary duty between you and us, including one that is between a doctor/healthcare professional with his/her patient.

5. We do not in any event include any medical diagnosis or advice regarding our customers’ personal health and are not intended as a substitute for seeking professional medical diagnosis, treatment or advice, from a suitably qualified medical and registered medical practitioner. Hence, decisions regarding care and treatment should not be solely based on this test or the information contained in the Test Report.

6. A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease as the underlying cause for an individual’s clinical presentation should always be considered in the context of that individual’s medical and family history and physical and neurological examination. Therefore, decisions on individual care and treatment must be based on the independent medical judgement of the client together with his / her medical doctor, taking into consideration all applicable information concerning the client’s condition, including but not limited to, client and family history, physical examinations, information from other diagnostic tests, and client preferences, in accordance with the application standard of care.

7. The information presented in the Test Report, if applicable, is compiled from sources believed to be reliable and current.

Hence, we cannot guarantee the accuracy or reliability of the results of the Test Report in other ethnic groups.

9. We urge customers with health concerns to discuss any medical issues with their medical practitioner.

10. You should not assume that any information we may provide to you, whether now or as plasma proteomic profiling research advances, will be welcome or positive.

There may be unknown environmental factors, or lifestyle choices that are far more important predictors. If your data indicate that you are not at elevated risk for Alzheimer’s Disease, you should not feel that you are protected. The opposite is also true; if your data indicate you are at an elevated risk for Alzheimer’s Disease, it does not mean you will definitively develop Alzheimer’s Disease. In either case, if you have concerns or questions about what you learn through the Website and/or the Test Report, you should contact your medical practitioner.
