A 33-year-old female asked:

How long after taking prednisone do i have to wait for bloodwork (a1c, fasting sugar, liver function, routine tests)?

No wait: Hgba1c may be a bit up because you've taken prednisone, fasting sugar will be unaffected a few days after stopping, and the other routine labs were unaffected.
