Fasting is not necessary before antibody testing--I don't believe doing so would affect the results either way :)

My son is 3 and will be tested for celiac disease next week, and they are doing his 4-year-old bloodwork at the same time (CBC, etc) which he has to fast for, and I was assured the fasting wouldn't affect his antibody test.

Hope that helps!
