How do I prepare for my blood draw?
Some of our medical director's tips for making your blood draw a better experience:
- Drink lots of fluids before and after the test
- Warn the phlebotomist if you have a tendency to faint or pass out during blood draws
- Be seated or laying down in a stable position so that you cannot fall
- Close your eyes and relax during the test through relaxing/breathing/visualization
It's over! Make sure you grab something to eat and drink after the blood draw. Your results will be available for viewing in 3-10 business days.
