When do I perform this test?
For best results the test should be carried out on an empty stomach and you should not have had anything to eat or drink for a period of 12 hours before carrying out the test. For more accurate results take the test first thing in the morning. It would be helpful to check the test result in a good light source in order to interpret the colour comparison better.
