Blood Chemistry Instructions
If you are planning to participate in the Blood Chemistry Analysis Blood Screening (Chem-24), remember that you should fast for at least 10-12 hours, but no more than 16 hours prior to your scheduled appointment. During the fasting period, drink plenty of water and take all prescribed medications. Avoid excessive exercise prior to your blood draw appointment. Contact your physician with any medical concerns regarding fasting. Fasting is not required for the CBC, PSA or hs-CRP Blood Screenings.
Participants With Diabetes
If you have diabetes and will be having your blood chemistry analysis done, please eat normally and take all medications, including any diabetic medications. Do not fast! Your test results may show elevated levels of glucose, cholesterol and triglycerides due to non-fasting.
You should drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration!
