  • Fasting for Medical

    I have my medical scheduled for 830 tomorrow morning and I am wondering t what time should I start fasting tonight.... I have a drug screening also right after the medical. I am wanting to make sure I give them whatever they need without the food in my system.


    Thanks!

    Normally they want you to fast for a blood sugar, but they should tell you ahead of time. Water only 12 hours prior to the blood pull.

      Don't know about your specific situation, but when a fasting is called for usually, it is nothing after midnight for most blood draws. It is not just glucose that requires a fasting. It is also cholesterol.

          I was always told from the physician not to eat anything after midnight, unless your physician has instructed you otherwise.
