Well I just went and got my labs done on Wednesday after work (4:30) the lady was insistant on taking my Glucose and Insulin levels even though I told her that I was not fasting and would have to come back for these tests! She said why get stuck twice and insisted that we could do it, since I did not eat in the last hour or so. What should I expect my levels to be at?

Also I did not take any of these until CD 10 .. should I have taken them before? My doctor did not tell me I had to go in at any specific time for the tests so I went when I was able to go.

LH and FSH are typically done on CD3 to get a baseline. It depends on what they are looking for...just to see how your cycle is progressing?? Glucose and insulin are generally done fasting.
