How to prepare for your blood test?

The blood test will need to be completed within the first month of starting treatment.

This can be completed at your local pathology clinic and if you have Medicare, the cost will be covered. REMEMBER:

  • This is a fasting blood test, which means no eating 12 hours before (water is fine). It is best to do these tests in the morning.
  • This is a normal pathology test, which should only take 5-10 minutes.
  • You must print the pathology request (attached to this email) and bring it with you to the lab.
  • You must bring your Medicare card with you to the lab
