To make your test results as accurate as possible, it's important you follow these guidelines.
Do NOT eat high-fibre or slowly digesting foods on the day before the test.
You must not eat for 8–12 hours before taking the test, but you can drink water. You also must avoid eating during the 3-hour test period. Most people prefer to take the test first thing in the morning, as they would have naturally fasted overnight.
If you're taking antibiotics or herbal antimicrobials, wait 4 weeks after finishing the course of treatment before taking this test. You must NOT stop a course of antibiotics in order to take the test. Avoid taking probiotics for 48 hours before taking the test.
