To ensure accurate results for the blood chemistry test, a 12-hour fast
(no food) is recommended prior to the blood draw. Fasting is not necessary
for the other low-cost screening tests. Diabetics should
not fast. All participants should drink water and take their regular medication.

your physician, and participants are advised to make an appointment with
their primary care provider to interpret test results. For questions about
