Do I need to fast before I get my blood drawn?

Please refer to the "Plan" section at the bottom of your visit note to determine whether or not you need to fast. If you’re unsure, message your doctor before you plan to have your lab visit.

If your doctor recommends fasting for lab testing, please avoid food for 8-10 hours. You should also avoid any beverages other than water including coffee and tea. We recommend that you stay well hydrated with water during this time, the more water the better!
