To make your test results as accurate as possible, it's important you follow these guidelines.
Do NOT perform the test if
you're taking immunosuppressant drugs
Do NOT discontinue any medications in order to take the test. You can take a test 4–6 weeks after giving birth.
Follow your normal diet before you take the test.
If there's a food that you've avoided for more than 3 months but which you would like tested (e.g. cow's milk), reintroduce that food. Eat one portion of the food daily for a week before taking the test. Do NOT eat anything to which you have a known allergy.
