Preparing for Lab Test

By LabBee | 2022  5-minute read 

Properly preparing for your upcoming lab work is essential to receiving the most accurate results. Most lab draws can be performed with little to no preparation, however there are a select few that might require you to fast or hold off on taking your medication or vitamins for a day or two. Not to worry though, your doctor wouldn’t have you hold a medication if it wasn’t imperative.

Most tests will have you fast, which is to refrain from eating from midnight the night before up to your test. Water is acceptable at anytime, however tea, sodas, or alcohol should be held. A common time for blood draws is in the morning, so you won’t have to go hungry for long. 

Lab tests are often used to help diagnose or screen for a specific disease or condition. Screening helps diagnose diseases before symptoms occur. Other tests are used to monitor a disease or see if treatment is effective.
