Below are a few tips on how to prepare for your at-home test:
- Though it's not required, we recommend fasting for at least 8 hours before your test.
- For the test's blood pressure and weight portion, we ask that you wear a short-sleeved shirt and change out of any heavy layers, such as jeans.
Most tests will require you to be seated at a table or desk that is not in direct sunlight. You will also need an area with tile, wood, or other non-carpeted surfaces to use the scale.
You'll need a sink with warm water and a clean towel or paper towel.
This test requires a finger prick and some blood collection. If this makes you nervous, consider asking a friend to help.
- Taking your test in a calming and familiar environment is always a plus.
- Make sure that the Reperio Kit is at room temperature (68–72 °F).
