I am currently taking medication can I still do the test?

If you are taking steroid or hydrocortisone containing medicine or creams in the past 7 days, do not perform the test. This includes inhalers and nasal sprays. If you are supplementing with DHEA do not perform the test.

NB: PLEASE DO NOT STOP ANY MEDICATION WITHOUT CONSULTING YOUR PHYSICIAN.

Any other medication that you routinely take should not affect the test.

Can I use a different method to collect the saliva?

To ensure your sample is not rejected, please use the collection tubes provided which have been validated for this test.

What if I cannot produce enough saliva?

Relaxing can greatly help saliva ow. We therefore suggest that before collection you relax, sit quietly for a few minutes and let the saliva accumulate in your mouth.

Some tips that may help stimulate saliva flow:

Move your tongue around in your mouth as this can stimulate saliva flow.

Sit with a cookbook or food magazine and look at the pictures, or alternatively think of your favourite food/meal or cook it.

Can I take my sample over a couple of days?

No, your samples all need to be taken on the same day. If you are doing shift work then please take at the times that would ‘represent’ a normal day for you, i.e. when you wake up and throughout your waking time up and including to when you go to bed.
