Fasting for Blood Work
We wanted to provide a quick note on the need to fast for some blood work. There are a handful of tests that require you to fast before we can obtain your samples. Your doctor and nurse will inform you if you need to avoid eating food or consuming liquids other than water. If you need fasting for blood work it is very important that you follow the instructions we provide. A simple stick of gum could alter your results and require you to have the tests performed all over again.
In regards to whether or not you are allowed to take your medication, please contact us so that you can be advised by your doctor. No one wants to have multiple tests that requires fasting for blood work so please ask us any questions so we can prevent disrupting your schedule for repeated tests.
