Should you eat or not before the analysis? Here's how the experts answer

Should you eat or not before the analysis? Here's how the experts answer

There are some blood tests where you are not required to be sober and there are others that require you not to consume anything for a certain period of time before the test.

Following these instructions from your doctor is very important to get an accurate reading of your tests.

What are the blood tests that require you to fast?
There are three main tests that require you to fast, they are the glucose test, the cholesterol test and the iron test.

Cholesterol screening requires that you fast for at least 9 to 12 hours before the blood test and also that you have not consumed alcohol for 24 hours prior to the test.

According to experts in the field, before performing a test for iron levels you should fast for 5 hours.

Glucose is another test that requires you to fast for 8 hours.

What is the purpose?
Because our bodies are different, a certain standard of fasting lipid values ??is necessary to determine what glucose, cholesterol and iron levels are unhealthy.

When you are sober, your blood levels return to normal. Eating or drinking something containing sugar before a glucose test can increase its levels in the blood, giving inaccurate results.

The same applies to blood tests for iron and cholesterol. Experts explain that eating before a cholesterol test results in a 20 to 30% increase in blood cholesterol levels. Alcohol consumption before testing significantly increases triglycerides.

Complete chemical examination
A complete chemical examination gives your doctor a glimpse of your general health.

Also known as the Chem-20, SMAC-20 or SMA-20, the complete chemistry screen includes 20 different tests ranging from albumin to uric acid.

Glucose and cholesterol are often included in this list. Preparations for the full chemical test depend on what your doctor is testing for.

Although some full chemistry tests may not require you to fast, in certain circumstances a doctor may ask you to fast for nine to 12 hours before the test.

However, the full chemical examination allows you to drink water in the morning before being tested.

Medications
Some medications cloud the results of blood tests, changing the result.

For example, blood pressure medications, birth control pills, and some corticosteroids can affect the results of a blood test.

Iron supplements can affect the iron test, anabolic steroids, sulfonamides, and statins can give your doctor a false result.

To avoid inaccuracies, we advise you to inform your doctor about all the medications you take regularly.
