    Hi, about 12-14 hrs before getting your blood cholesterol done.

    Re: How Long Should I Fast before a Blood Test

    When I had my blood test done (and cholesterol was something they were checking) I was told not to eat after 10:00pm the night before and to go in the morning before I ate.

    So I would say between 10 - 14 hours.
