They probably want to do blood work along with the physical, so instead of having you come in twice, they will just have you fast for the physical and do the blood work right away.

Some lab work, such as testing your blood sugar level, is affected by eating.  It’s pretty standard to have to fast before lab work.

Stuff like blood sugars, and cholesterol levels need to be done with fasting.
