Do I Need To Avoid Eating And Drinking Before an STD Blood Panel?

Question:

"If i'm going in to take a blood test tomorrow for a STD panel, do I need to avoid eating or drinking beforehand? "

Response:

Certain blood tests will require abstaining from both eating and drinking prior to taking the test. STD blood panels do not have any of these requirements and as such you're free to eat and drink up until the moment that you go to the clinic. If you're currently taking a prescription of antibiotics, check with your healthcare professional because you may need to test after you've finished your treatment.
