Honestly, just don't eat after midnight, and you'll be fine. You got an early one (which is very good for blood tests), so no worries about fasting there. You can have a nice big breakfast afterward.

The only blood test that requires fasting is glucose fasting, you are taking random glucose so you should NOT be fasting. If you go in with a fasting glucose when your doctor requested random he/she may think you are on your way to being pre diabetic when you are fine. Be sure to let your doctor know whether or not you have eaten in the event you get called for odd results.
