Fasting Blood Tests
We recommend eating nothing after midnight for fasting blood tests but remember to drink plenty of water to maintain your hydration. Tests results can be distorted by dehydration. If you are having a test to measure your blood level of a medication please talk to the medical staff for special instructions. This advice also applies for overnight and 24 hour urine samples.
