Not like I haven't had these before but the lab slip I just printed off says I need to fast.

I have never heard of having to fast before those tests and every website I checked said that there is no preparation for those tests so I think you will be okay if you don't.

Thanks Jessica, I googled it too and only found one that said to fast before the TSH but a ton of other sites said it didn't matter.

susan, I've had these tests a zillion times (it seems) and I have never been told to fast. I think you're ok.

I can't see why you would need to fast, but if you want to be totally sure, why not fast until the labs open and call them or your doctor to ask? I am sure they can tell you.

Thanks Jeanne & Michelle, I didn't think I had ever fasted either but I also don't recall having prolactin checked.

I hope you get some good news, it is about time. I understand your need to know what is going on, I am much the same way. Hence why I chart and all of that.
