Anyhow, I did say "sometimes". So this dialogue isn't unusual, especially if you know the pathology lady (which it invariably seems to be):
Me: "I'm here for a fasting blood test."
Path. Lady: "So, are you fasted?" (Yes, she's a bit of a smart alec.)
Actually, they usually ask, "When did you last eat?", but that doesn't help much with the topic of the thread.
I'm not a teacher.

What is Permitted for a Fasting Person?
So I will reward the fasting person for it and the reward of good deeds is multiplied ten times.
fasting (adv) = on an empty stomach
If hydrochloric acid is taken fasting without the addition of food to digest, it will cause a warm to burning sensation in the stomach.
