Pathology Testing Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to stop supplements or medications before the test?

There is a list of supplements included with the instructions but I also recommend stopping any non-essential supplements and B vitamins for a couple of days before testing.

*continue any prescription medications.

Do I have to stop any foods before testing?

Yes and they are listed in the instructions.

*also remember to not drink too many fluids in the 12 hours before testing as we do not want the urine sample too diluted - this is also mentioned in the instructions.

What about collecting samples for a young child

The OAT test is a great test for young children, however if you think you will have trouble collecting a urine sample we can organize a paediatric collection kit - let us know as soon as possible as we will need to organize this before your order is shipped.
