There are no specific preparations necessary for taking this test. However, physicians suggest not feeding the baby for one to two hours before testing to ensure the accuracy of the results.

Other tests that may be recommended alongside this test include measuring amino acids through plasma, measuring branched-chain keto acids in urine, and genetic testing to confirm the MSUD diagnosis.
