Preparing for Metabolic Testing
- For the exercise metabolic test (VO2 test), you can use a face mask available at our clinic or purchase your own for $40.
- If you’re taking the resting metabolic test, you must buy your hose, which costs around $12.
- Avoid eating for at least four hours before any metabolic test.
- Avoid caffeine for at least six hours before any metabolic test.
- Do not exercise on the day of the test. In general, avoid exercise 12 to 24 hours before any metabolic test.
