Will food intake affect blood work results?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I generally eat close to 100% raw/paleo. I am getting bloodwork done this afternoon and ate a couple pieces of low-quality chocolate this morning (I am paying for it with nausea still). Will this affect my bloodwork in any way?

Should I wait until tomorrow? How long will it take to process through my body?

Yes. I don't know what else to put with this answer, but the answer is yes.

the one price of chocolate won't effect much unless you are specifically asked to fast. if it's anything outside of that i would not worry. im sure how we eat effects our blood and all our levels but i would not worry about it in this case. i think its a more big picture kinda thing.

What is it specifically you are worried about? A couple of pieces of chocolate will not affect your bloodwork in any significant manner unless you were specifically trying to take a fasted blood test (i.e. for blood lipid/cholesterol screening). Don't sweat the small stuff too much.
