I have been given conflicting information about timing of product application on days when blood will be drawn.
My common sense tells me that if my blood draw is scheduled for 8am and I apply the gel immediately (within an hour) prior then the spike from the application will skew the readings. With this in mind, I applied daily (mornings) but waited until after I had the blood draw to apply for that day. Doing this, my levels either raised slightly or went down.
I mentioned this to my MD and was told to apply at same time and “not to worry” about the spikes as “this is a true reading”.
How do you do it?
