I am 51 hours into a planned 96 hour fast. I have asked my doctor to put in for some lab work. It’s that time of year. Due for a yearly visit, but don’t really have any issues. I was anemic a few years ago so I want to keep on top of that. Fasting insulin is one of the tests I have requested. I’ve had that drawn before and the numbers were good.
My question is, I will be 60+ hours fasted if I have my blood done tomorrow morning. Will this skew my numbers for any of the other results such as cholesterol? I can wait and have it done some time next week if that’s the case. Thanks for any input.
