Electro-dermal screening for vitamins and minerals?

Today while in a pharmacy I was offered a free test for vitamins and minerals. It was performed as a quick electro-dermal screening. It seems my Omegas are low. I've been supplementing with fish oil (2000 mg a day) for about a month. Is this test a quack, or should I increase my intake, or just keep it at 2000 mg and give it more time?

Other results make sense: I am deficient in zinc (makes sense given my health status), good in Magnesium and C (I supplement both), and borderline in B1, B2, B6, B complex (I have been supplementing that for a month as well, but maybe it is not enough to raise levels).

seems like BS to me, after some googling - but how do you check your levels then? There is a blood test for vitamin D, but how do you check other levels?

Your basing your mineral and vit intake on fish oil...vit d3 and vit d 6. If your not taking multi vits then yes your prolly low especially in your vit b's, if your vegan then in iron as well
