Follow these instructions if your ZOE kit contains more than 1 blood test. If your kit contains 1 blood test, follow these instructions instead.

The order and timing of your tasks today is pretty important. Don’t worry, the ZOE app will give you helpful reminders to keep you on track. Here’s what you need to do today...

1. Wake up and remain fasted; do not exercise

Remain fasted (only plain still water) until you eat your breakfast muffins. Do not exercise this day until after your final blood test (2 hours after lunch).

2. Do your first finger prick blood test

Do this before your breakfast muffins while you’re still in a fasted state. We know, it's not the best way to start the day. But there are some tasty muffins to look forward to as a reward for doing it. Follow the step-by-step instructions and see some helpful tips in the app first and then the printed blood test booklet. Make sure to wash your hands with hot water and soap before you start; do not use hand sanitizer as this will affect your results.

3. Eat your breakfast muffins

Blood test done? Great. Now you can enjoy your muffins. You can have plain still water, plain black coffee or tea with them if you want but nothing else. Follow the instructions in the muffin packaging and log them with the app.

Please note

You have to eat the whole muffins, otherwise we might not be able to give you accurate results.

4. Do your second blood test 30 minutes after breakfast

You know the drill by now. Just a few more drops of blood.

Please note:
Try to do your blood test on time. Otherwise we might not be able to give you accurate results.

5. Don’t eat, drink or exercise for 4 hours

Besides plain still water, plain black coffee or plain tea.

6. Eat your lunch muffins

The 4 hour fast is over. Treat yourself with another batch of muffins. Again, you can have plain still water, plain black coffee or tea with them. Follow instructions on the muffin packaging and log them with the app.

Please note

You have to eat the whole muffins, otherwise we might not be able to give you accurate results.

7. Don’t eat, drink or exercise for 2 more hours

Besides plain still water, plain black coffee or tea.

8. Do your third and final blood test after your 2 hour fast

One last blood test to finish off your day.

Please note:
Try to do your blood test on time. Otherwise we might not be able to give you accurate results.

9. You can eat anything you want after the final blood test

10. Mail your blood samples to the lab

Just pop each sample in its own blood sample return bag and prepaid envelope. Please try to mail your samples the same day you've completed them.
