Do I have to fast before my lab test(s)?


While fasting is not required before taking lab tests, your provider may ask you to fast up to eight hours prior to your blood being drawn. Your LifeMD care team will be happy to clarify this. Be aware that fasting does not mean you should refrain from drinking water. Drinking plain water in the hours prior to your lab appointment is acceptable unless you are specifically instructed not to do so.
