Annual blood tests are essential. But do you know what you shouldn’t do before taking them? 

If you want to make sure you’re healthy and well, it’s essential to take a blood test at least once a year. All the doctors encourage us to take it for a plethora of reasons.

For example, if you had a bacteria or a certain disease a couple of years ago, maybe they want to check to see if you still have it or if your body is immune to it. Another reason is to find your blood type (in case you don’t know it already). This is crucial, especially before surgery.

This being said, in this article, we will try to explore more of this topic, but mostly what you shouldn’t be doing before taking a blood test, no matter the type. Click on the next page to see the rest of the article.

  1. I’ve only heard of some of the suggestions when fasting was necessary. I was told for most tests you want things as normal as possible so they can see what your levels are under normal circumstances.

  2. Mr. David Rowinski

    Re: page 4 “… postpone it for two or three days after the tests.” Should this be “before” the tests?
