Effect Of Fasting And Whether Or Not The Results Of The MCU?
Good afternoon. Earlier I finished carrying out the work MCU, but when examined my heart and pulse, the doctor asked “haven’t eaten yet?” Even though I already ate. Is my pulse low? Then according to the web that I read, before the MCU was fasted, but I had breakfast this morning with rice and spinach, what will be the effect on my blood test? Is it really necessary to fast? Thank you, good afternoon.
