5) My doctor has ordered fasting lab tests, what can I eat or drink?

You should not eat anything after 10:00 p.m. the night before having your blood drawn. The only liquid you can drink is water; in fact drinking some water helps keep your veins plump and makes drawing blood easier. You should take all your medication as usual and brushing your teeth is fine.
