for you!

Unless you are very slim, I would fast if possible. Then, if they have to do the blood test because your waist size is over, you won't need to go back - they can do it there and then!

When we did ours, it was less than 88cm for a woman. However, looking at the forms, they now look different. There was also a requirement for BMI to be less than 35. The fact that they have asked you to fast probably means that they will do the cholesterol test regardless.
Sure you will be fine - lay off the alchohol, no bacon sarnies for breakfast and all will be well!

The NZIS changed the form in May this year, all applicants are to have cholesterol tests (less the kids of course) so it's nowt to do with whether or not a person needs to eat more salad and less macdonalds :-)
