After your doctor has written you a request form, there are a number of questions you may have regarding your tests. Whilst the majority of our tests are from blood samples, other tests may be performed on samples of tissue, urine, stools or other body fluids and secretions. The collection staffs at Dr. Essa Laboratory & Diagnostic Centre are extensively trained to ensure a professional encounter. Some of the questions you may have are answered below:


Not all tests require fasting beforehand. However, there are some tests which will require you to fast for 8 – 15 hours, for example cholesterol, lipids, fasting glucose. Fasting should not exceed 15 hours.

We recommend that you fast overnight. You should drink water during this time and take any medication you would normally take, unless advised by your doctor.

Your doctor will inform you of any tests that require fasting or you may contact Dr. Essa Laboratory & Diagnostic Centre for advice.
