Schedule time with your healthcare provider to review results and make a plan to acheive your health goals.
Preparing for a Test
If possible, plan to complete your collection early in the work week and be sure to ship your pack within 24 hours of collection to ensure specimens are viable.
Some collection packs contain materials that expire (date is printed on the box label). Plan to collect specimens and return your pack well before the expiration date.
Always talk with your healthcare provider about any prescription or over-the-counter medications and dietary supplements you take before performing diagnostic testing.
There may be times when your healthcare provider prefers that you stay on a medication or dietary supplement during testing in order to evaluate its effectiveness. The recommendation to discontinue any substance is intended to establish a baseline finding. Genova never recommends that patients discontinue medically necessary medications or supplements in order to complete testing.
