    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.

    Re: what's the adj of fasting ( man who don't eat for some reasons)

    I'm not a teacher.

    [QUOTE=emsr2d2;616517]I can't think of any way of saying it as an adjective. As far as I know, it can only be used as a verb or a noun:

    You have to know that even a man of moderate means takes advantage of the the opportunity to make use of the key word “fasting” as an adjective or an adverb.

    fasting (adj)
    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.

    Regards,

    V.
