Fasting for liver function tests?
« on: October 17, 2016, 03:09:18 pm »
My doctor just ordered some liver function tests for me.  I haven't had anything to eat, but I have had a couple cups of coffee.  Not sure If I should wait till tomorrow or get the test with the Coffee in my system.  I am not coffee affects the test results, any insight?

Sorry just found out it is not required to fast for these tests.

Thanks
