    Does the Health Diagnostics methylation panel require overnight fasting? (I just went for a repeat test but didn't fast... hope that doesn't invalidate the results...)

    This test looks at red blood cell, not plasma or serum (if I am not mistaken). As such, I don't think it will make any difference.

    Thanks nanonug. I just checked and it actually looks like plasma glutathione levels are being measured. :-/
