Lab Test FAQs

You need to fast if your doctor has ordered a fasting test. This means that you cannot eat anything and may only drink clear water for 12-14 hours prior to your test.

You should continue to take your medications unless otherwise instructed by your doctor.

Some common fasting tests include: fasting glucose, fasting lipid panel, fasting metabolic panel, fasting cholesterol, HDL or triglyceride.

If you are uncertain about whether or not you should fast, please contact your healthcare provider.

Because certain test results may be influenced by what you eat or drink, we prefer that you do not have your blood drawn if your tests were ordered as fasting.

No, you do not need to make an appointment.

Please bring your insurance card, your picture ID and any scripts from your provider. 

Because we have a full service lab at Malta Med Emergent Care, most tests are available to your physician the same day. Some tests that need to be referred may take longer.
