Additional Information   

Eating 2 hours before the test may affect your results by up to 1.5%, but not more. Therefore, we advise you not to eat within two hours before the test. Working out and drinking water is alright. You should try to use the restroom and take a shower if possible. Also, please do not have large amounts of makeup or hair gel on when testing.

The water is chemically treated for cleanliness, similar to a swimming pool or spa, and is run on a constant filtration system throughout the day. The lab is fully heated in the winter and air conditioned in the summer to provide a comfortable testing environment.

A trained technician will be with you every second of the test. You will have privacy and confidentiality during the entire test, which only takes 10 minutes. You may have a friend in the clinic at the same time observing if you wish.
