Did you guys fast for 12 hours prior like it said?
I was hoping to get my blood drawn today but I didn't print the requisition form until this morning so I didn't notice the fasting.
Unfortunately I had a protein shake in water and fat free yogurt this morning. Prior to that I hadn't ate in 9 hours.
Will that protein shake/yogurt mess up my levels, or would it be negligable? I know if they were testing for lipids that would be a diff story but I'm wondering if the fast is just a general recommendation or if there is a legit reason behind it regarding this test. I am only getting the hormone panel done today BTW, no other test.
Dumb question I know, I realize I should fast just as it says, but I'm just curious what you guys think/did.
