Are you fasting for several hours before taking the test?

I say that because there is a vast difference in the two readings. It's as though you drank several pints of full fat milk or something before your last test.
I had a test done last week, and as usual I had to fast for 12 hours beforehand. I was only allowed sips of water. I stop at 8pm and then have the test as early as possible, around 8am.
