Your health should be kept under control and the ideal is a blood test once a year. This is only feasible if it is not necessary to control any parameter in particular as cholesterol or blood sugar. As one does not do tests every day, we must take into account certain precautions, so that the results are accurate and with quality.

Some analyses should be done on an empty stomach so that the food eaten does not affect the results. If you are asked to come fasting to harvest, try taking the last meal 12 hours before. If you are taking any medication on an empty stomach, ie diabetic, ask your health care provider, how to proceed.

Analyses to be carried out during pregnancy do not require fasting except Glucose Evidence or the first determined glycemia in pregnancy.

In the case of infants and children check with your pediatrician or with the laboratory of the procedure.
Avoid physical exertion during the 2 hours prior to a crop and try to be calm, because stress alters the concentration of some parameters. You should also avoid coffee and alcohol within 4 hours prior to harvesting.

There are some analyses that require advance preparation, see the Package Insert for Harvests, or the Lab to learn about the care to take before you make them, as well as the appropriate way to collect the sample.

The collection of some samples such as urine, feces must be carried out in suitable containers, so as to have the certainty that these containers were not subjected to any specific treatment or additives, which could alter the results of analyses.
