Fasting tests

If you are asked to attend for a fasting blood test, you must book a blood test clinic appointment and should not eat or drink anything after 10pm the previous night other than plain water. You should not chew chewing gum (even sugar free) or eat mints, cough drops, cough linctuses or throat lozenges. You should continue to take any normal medication during this time. Seek advice from your doctor if you are on medication that should be taken with food or if you are diabetic.

If required to have a glucose tolerance test you will need to fast, have two appointments 2 hours apart and you will need to remain in the clinic for the duration of the test (failure to do so will affect your results).
