In brief: Depends

Depending on what kind of blood tests are being done, you may need to fast.
If you are having a metabolic panel, liver panel or cholesterol panel you will need to fast. Probably would be best if you check with your ordering physician to make sure that you understand what you need to do. This will make you avoid potentially abnormal results or the need for a repeat test later.
