Any suggestions on which is the best at home drug test kit ?

Any suggestions on which is the best at home drug test kit ?

All the same: They essentially use the same technologies, and differ on how many tests are available for how much. Some are only for a single drug (like Cocaine or thc), others are 5 or 7 or even 10-12 drug panels, and the expense generally goes up as the number of tests does. I would look at directions and see which may be easier for you to use, and otherwise go by price. ...Read more

How can I get home diagnostic kits to test for diabetes?

Many: While they don't diagnose diabetes, there are many glucose monitoring meters and strips available in your local drug store. If your sugar tests higher than normal fasting (less than 104) or more than 200 at any time of the day, you need to be checked for diabetes or at least pre diabetes. Get a head start by diet, exercise and weight loss now. Don't wait. There are also a1c test kits available. ...Read more

Would a HIV oraquick home kit test be accurate 4 weeks after exposure?

Would a HIV oraquick home kit test be accurate 4 weeks after exposure?

HIV antibody tests: No. The antibody testing that is the routine way to test for HIV is not a good test for such a time this close to exposure. But, there is the HIV pcr dna tests. These would be conclusive at four weeks. Unfortunately, this type of testing is not available as a home test. ...Read more

Hi..Please tell how much reliable is rapid detection at home HIV test kit?And please tell me how it is done.Is it done in morning or any time?

HIV Testing: It is very accurate as long as you are three to six months past the exposure. If you are not this far past the exposure the test should be avoided. If you have real risk of HIV there is a better test that can be definite at 21 days post exposure. This is the HIV RNA viral test. The time of day one does this kind of test does not matter in any way. ...Read more

Tested well over window period with four BioSure Home Self test rapid kits, Only ones available in UK and CE marked. All negative. Am I negative?

Depends on symptoms: If you don't have any symptoms of early pregnancy like pink, brown bloody discharge, abdominal pain etc. you can feel confident that you are not. In any case, if you would not wait a few weeks to see if you get your period, a blood test would be confirmatory. Best of luck ...Read more

Do you think that having four at-home self rapid HIV tests, that I don't have HIV? I bought them from BioSURE, only self testing kits available in UK

Depends: If the potential exposure was more than 6 months ago, negative test would be reassuring. If the exposure was more recent, a negative result does not rule out infection. It would be prudent to discuss it with your doctor to see if a HIV nucleic acid test would be more suitable for you. ...Read more

I want to do a home HIV, Hep. B/C test. I only want a home rapid test kit. Can you recommend a reputable manufacturer or website that sells them?

All are reliable: All home self tests for these infections are FDA approved. Whatever your pharmacy has on the shelf will work fine and be reliable as long as you follow the instructions carefully. There is only such test for HIV (Oraquick®); I don't know about the others. For all of them, be aware it takes time for the test to be reliable after a possible exposure. For HIV/Oraquick, it's 3 months. ...Read more
