Do I Need To Fast Before Testing?

It depends on the test. Some tests, like the lipid panel, require a 10-hour fasting period. When fasting is required, only black coffee (no cream or sweetener) and water are permitted.  Some tests have other special instructions, which are noted on the description of each test.
