Re: [IPk] Fasting Tests

The cholesterol test is usually a fasting test. I have to have nothing to eat 
after midnight but can drink water or black tea before the test. It's best to 
tell whoever is doing the testing that you have type 1 diabetes beofre it's 
due and they will make an early appt. for you to avoid hypo's. You say you 
are having the test done at the hospital? Is there any way you could get it 
done by your GP's surgery? Just that very often path labs at hospitals don't 
start work until 9:30 am or later for routine testing and GP's tend to open 
Hope this helps
