Sweat Sodium Testing Information

The testing appointment takes place at InsideOut Human Performance, located at 46 Depot St., Westford MA 01886.

To prepare for the appointment:

  • There is NO need to fast, so you can drink and eat your usual fluids and foods prior. Try to be well-hydrated.

  • Do your best to avoid exercise in the 1.5 hours prior. Note that our appointment is a non-exercise test and will resemble what this athlete did.

  • If you have "hairy" forearms, you can shave a small patch (~3 inches long, ~2 inches wide) on your inner left forearm. If you forget, Dina will have an extra razor for you.

  • Plan on 45 minutes for the appointment.

Please complete the form below to provide Dina additional information prior to your testing appointment.
