Frequently Asked Question
Do I need to fast or prepare for my appointment?
For this blood test you will need to fast for at least ten hours before the test. Avoid ejaculation and heavy exercise for at least 48 hours before the test. This test is unsuitable for anyone with a urinary infection as this will affect the results, and it is not suitable for anyone undergoing a prostate biopsy in the past 6 weeks.
What should I expect during my appointment?
The Superdrug nurse will take a small sample of blood from your arm.
The sample is then sent, via a special Royal Mail service to our UKAS registered lab to be analysed. Your results will be reviewed by Doctors at Melio Health, and they will send you a link to your results. To find out more about Melio Health click here
