How long do I have to fast before bloodwork? Im type 1 diabetic and sometimes my blood sugar goes low in the middle of the night and I have to eat. Is there anything i can eat to avoid having  to wait all day to eat anything in order to pass this blood wo

U can't with a low: If you have a low blood sugar in the middle of the night, you have to treat it. That would put a kink in morning fasting labs.

Please discuss with ur doc. Fasting is going 8-12 hours without food. ...Read more
