Do I need to fast before my blood test?
Some WellnessFX panels require fasting, and some do not. The e-Checkup, Baseline, Performance, Premium and Omega panels all require fasting. If done separately from the panels mentioned above, the Women's Health panel and Advanced Thyroid panel do not require fasting.
If your blood panel requires fasting:
- Fast for 12 hours (no food or beverages, except water).
- Avoid alcohol for 24 hours.
- Avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours.
- Drink plenty of water.
Also, remember to print out your lab order and bring it with you to the partner lab.
