when my bro & i were younger mum used to prick our fingers in the bath but then we found out water contaminated the results so we just did it before bfast or dinner 1 day once in a blue moon. like we’d say ok test will be thurs morning before breakfast so we’d drink lotsa formula n be real good n strict diet for like a week before. now we live away from home we only test ourselves when the hospital writes to us asking us to.
