Diet & Supplement Considerations
- If you take iodine and/or selenium supplements (e.g. Iodoral, multi-vitamin) daily, continue to take them as usual when testing.

- Foods highest in iodine include seafood, seaweed (kelp) and dairy products. Foods highest in selenium include Brazil nuts.
Reasons for sample rejection: Samples that are still wet, not sealed in the bag, or too dilute (too much liquid consumed prior to collection) will not be processed, replaced or refunded. Samples over 30 days old will not be processed. }
What if I miss a collection? If you miss a collection time, collect the sample at the designated time the following day. For example, if you miss the evening collection, collect in the evening the next day. Revise the requisition form and the time on the back of the card appropriately
