Lab draw tips:

  • Fast between 8-12 hours prior to a triglyceride test for the most accurate results.
  • Stay well-hydrated by drinking 8-10 glasses of water per day for 72 hours before testing.
  • Some medications and supplements can affect your results. Please list all your meds.
  • Be well-rested and stay calm. Undue anxiety and nervousness can affect blood pressure and some lab values.
  • Blood drawn from a vein is more reliable than a finger stick. Finger stick samples may need to be repeated, especially if the finger was squeezed or milked to get the blood drop.
  • Laboratories often discount a combined lipid and HbA1c test.
