Fasting Blood Test
If fasting is required, you should not have anything to eat or drink (except water) for 8 to 15 hours before your test – preferably overnight. You should continue to take all your regular medications unless your doctor advises you not to.
If you are diabetic or have any other concerns, please speak to your doctor before fasting.
Please notify the Melbourne Pathology Nurse if you have fasted for longer than 15 hours, as prolonged fasting may affect your results.
