How long do I have to go without eating for a fasting test?
Sometimes special preparation is necessary to improve the accuracy of laboratory testing. This may involve:
- Fasting (not eating any or certain foods) for several hours or overnight and possibly even avoiding coffee with cream/sugar until after laboratory testing has been performed.
- Drinking more or less water than usual.
- Avoiding certain medications or vitamin and herbal supplements prior to testing.
It is important to consult with your provider about the medications you are currently taking, including supplements and other over-the-counter medications, before making any changes to your routine prior to having laboratory tests performed.
How do I get a copy of my results?
Laboratory results can be obtained by filling out a patient records request form at the Patient Service Center. More detailed instructions are provided under the Records Request page, by calling the Patient Records department at 844.280.8484 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I pay for my lab testing?
I do not have insurance. Do I have to pay upfront or can I be billed?
We will bill you. However if you pay for your tests at the time of service, you may be eligible for a discounted fee schedule.
