Why do some blood tests require fasting?

Data: 2019-12-04

Everything you eat and drink contains vitamins, proteins, and other nutrients that can cause the related levels in your blood to temporarily spike or drop.
Fasting for 8–12 hours helps ensure that blood test results are free from these variables, making your test results as accurate as possible.

Some common tests that may require fasting include:
• cholesterol tests
• blood sugar tests
• liver function tests
• kidney function tests
• basic metabolic panel
• glucose tests
