Nitrate readings

Just need some guidance regarding nitrate readings. The test kit I have says to perform the test and wait 10 minutes for the reading. When I do so I get my reading. Then I tend to take care of other stuff and perhaps come back 30-45 minutes later to clean up everything and I find my readings are different. Is there any validity to the reading after such prolonged period? Generally the reading are lower after 30-45 minutes.
