Do All Lab Checks Need To Fast First?
Morning … Yesterday my father checked the Lab, because I saw a change in weight loss from my father. And he did not feel any pain, just said to urinate frequently. Finally I asked him to check the lab, through blood and urine. Without fasting, the results of the check lab are valid? Honestly I do not understand beforehand if you have to check fasting.Thank you!
Weight loss can be affected due to various causes. What blood tests do you do? Not all blood tests require fasting.
There are various blood tests that do not require fasting, and can be checked directly. Some types of tests that require fasting such as: fasting blood sugar, lipid profile. This type of blood sugar check can also be done without fasting which is referred to as blood sugar at a time. Urine examination is also generally possible without fasting first. So it's good to see what kind of examination your father did.
So it is recommended that you consult directly with the doctor, so that the doctor can do a physical examination directly on your father, and can directly assess the results of the lab that you checked earlier.
