i can't remember if you are supposed not eat anything for so many hours before it or not? anyone know? i remember with my 1st they told me nothing sweet before the test but if i wanted i could eat something light like a piece of toast (no juice/sweet cereal ect) i have a new dr this time and she never gave me specific guidelines about fasting before it or not. do you think i'll be ok as long as i don't eat after midnight? (appt is at 10 tomorrow) also would water be ok to drink?
I was told to go about my day as usual. To eat and drink anything that I did before that time on a daily basis. Got to my OB appointment and was given a Pepsi. then I had an hour to get to the lab to have the blood drawn.
I have one on Thursday. My appt. is at 1 and they told me not to eat or drink anything after 11am. So, NO food or drink 2 hrs. prior to appt.
I have my test tomorrow to. My dr didnt say anything about fasting but all the ladies I work with said I am suppose to lol. No help I'm sorry!!
I would have called and asked.for directions. For me I could eat and drink anything I wanted all the way up to one hour before I had to drinking it.
some doctors want you to fast, others don't.
Just use good judgement - obviously you don't want to fill up on a ton of sugar before you go in.
They told me to eat as normal and I failed slightly and got stuck doing a three hour-not fun! I would eat carefully.
My app was at 830am. I was told to not eat or drink anything after midnight, the night of. I passed mine.
