I'd like to avoid rejection during the health screening. What should consider as I work on perfecting my lab rat bod? I've never been one to keep track of all the things like sugar intake, fats, starches, etc. Should I start? I know my veins are too small to donate plasma...do I need to consider my vein size? I'd greatly appreciate anyone that can fill me in any of the little details. I'm not rushing into a study, so I figured it won't hurt to acknowledge and work on these things in the meantime. Thanks! -e.
I wouldn't think veins being to small would be an issue. Mine roll, and that causes problems sometimes. I only have 2 pieces of advice as these are the only 2 things I've been turned down for. Watch what you eat I missed out on a $12,000 study because my cholesterol was elevated. I have also missed out on a study due to working out to close to my screening date. That can throw off your lab results.

Well living a healthy lifstyle does seem to help for me, regular exercise, eating healthy, not imbibing much with drugs or alcohol. If your at the ends of the bmi spectrum do what you can to get more towards the middle. If your concerned about certain lab values maybe get a comprehensive panel down at a local lab to see what you need to work on before going to a screening. And of course, going in with a good attidude and being freindly (but not overly) with the screening staff can be helpfull...especially at a new place. And of course divulging too much of your personal healthy history can get you eliminated from a study or ban you from certain studies in the future...but holding back does have the potential to harm you so that's a judgment call on you. And of course don't take (or keep mum about) any recent medications and supplements up to screening, These places will not take you for soing as simple as taking a OTC drug 13 days before checkin etc etc
