WHAT DO I NEED TO DO IN PREPARATION FOR MY TEST?

All InsideTracker blood tests require a 12 hour fast immediately preceding the test. Home Kit users may fast anywhere from 10-12 hours. 


 In addition to your fast, please:

  • Do not engage in strenuous exercise for two days before the blood test. Beginner weight-lifters should avoid weightlifting for at least 7 days before their InsideTracker blood test.
  • Do not drink any alcohol for at least 24 hours before the InsideTracker blood test.  
  • Do not take supplements within 24 hours of your blood draw.
  • Continue medication use as recommended by your physician.  
  • Drink extra water before the blood test to ensure proper hydration.
  • Bring your printed lab slip and photo ID to any tests conducted at Quest Diagnostics.
