Since you have been already diagnosed diabetes, the test asked is likely to be HbA1c (glycosylated hemoglobin). This show the average blood sugar of last 3 months. This test is for looking at the diabetes control. This does not require fasting. So you may eat and take all of your routine medicines.

Still it is advised to confirm at your doctor's office, if there are other tests like lipid profile being also ordered which will require minimum 10-12 hours fasting.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
