How to prepare for my GlycanAge test?

Taking the GlycanAge test is as simple and easy as a regular finger prick, dry spot blood collection test - you would only need to provide four large drops of blood and we will send you anything required in order to do that.

There is no need for you to fast prior to collecting your sample, however, we do advise you to refrain from consuming excessive alcohol or high-fat meals for eight hours before having your blood taken. Although this won't have a direct impact on your result, it could interfere with your blood sample quality.

There are a couple of things you can do before you collect your sample so the process is as smooth as possible:

  • drink a lot of water — being hydrated makes it easier to collect your blood sample
  • stay warm - having a hot shower or jumping on the spot for a minute makes it easier to collect your blood sample

Also, please inform yourself about the special considerations and limitations on our website: Acknowledgment and consent form.
