Are there any special considerations when taking the test?
Pregnancy This test is not riskier than a usual blood withdrawal. Therefore, it is safe to take during pregnancy. However, pregnancy can affect your result. If you are pregnant, we advise you to take the test upon re-establishment of your normal menstrual cycle after the end of pregnancy.
Contraceptives or other hormonal therapy Contraceptives and other hormonal therapy can affect your result. If you are taking contraceptives or other hormonal therapy (including but not limited to IVF hormonal treatment), please report this to your GlycanAge advisor.
Medications Different medications can affect your result. If you are taking any medications (including but not limited to corticosteroids), please report this to your GlycanAge advisor.
Age At the moment we limit GlycanAge to 20 years so if you are between 18 and 20 years old and your GlycanAge is 20, your result is optimal.
