If you are planning to participate in the Health Fair panel, 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.
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!
We encourage you to share the results of your blood screening with your physician during your next annual appointment.
Results will be mailed to your home address in 1-2 weeks.
If any of your blood draw screening results are in an abnormal range, you will be asked to follow up with your own physician.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please let your employer contact know.
