Yes, your Dr. should have given you a list of things you could not eat or drink. Water is usually not listed during a fast unless you're having surgery and even then, it is only a few hours.
When you are fasting to have blood work done you cannot drink anything besides water or eat anything. Any substance can affect your blood work and not give a proper reading on your tests.
Yes, but natural filtered water is best.
NO 95% of fasting tests require nothing but water and the amount of toothpaste it took to do your teeth in the morning.
You only need to fast before blood work if you are having a fasting blood glucose blood test. Not each blood drawing will require you to fast. If you are required to fast, you may still drink water before your blood work.
No. It has sugar and affects sugar levels in blood.
no are u mad
If you are having blood work done and are told to fast, then you can drink nothing but water. If it is non-fasting, then you can have coffee, but be sure to tell the person doing the blood work.
Religiously speaking, it depends. The Muslims do not drink during the day during Ramadan. Medically speaking, it depends what the fast is for such as Blood Work, Surgery, etc.
Neither you have to get liquid (tea coffee etc.) & nor you have to eat anything, however you can take water before fasting blood work.
Yes, honestly, you aren't suppose to drink anything at least 2 hours before getting blood work.
can you receive holy communion before fasting for blood work
When ordered to fast prior to a blood test, it is important that no food or drink is ingested. Any intake may alter the test results, even stimulation of digestive enzymes can alter your blood work, so no beverages are advised.
YES! It's fine to drink water for a standard cholesterol blood test. I can only assume it's also OK for many other blood tests. You're doctor or lab should have standard instructions for how to fast prior to blood work. Call them and confirm if they are still open. Your doctor's office/lab may have instructions for fasting posted on their website. Remember, if your DO slip up and eat something during the fasting period, tell them! Otherwise your results will be screwed up. Coffee is also usually allowed, but NOT with sugar or cream.
Blood urea nitrogen tests require a 12 hour fasting before hand. Preanesthetic blood work requires a fasting before hand also. Most all blood work requires a 12 hour fasting before hand.
Yes as long as you drink it black....no sugar or cream/cream substitutes.
No. When "fasting" for any reason, the only thing that is permitted (and check with your doctor, as blood work is different than, say, surgery) is water, and only to take medication (again, if permitted by your doctor) A "fasting" status means nothing by mouth at all. This includes, of course, decaf coffee. If one doesn't fast the results of the lab tests could be completely wrong, and the doctor was under the impression that you were fasting. If you accidentally or for some other reason don't fast, MAKE SURE you alert your doctor right away. This is for your own good, as important decisions about medication and procedures are made from this blood work.
No, typically you are limited to only water.
Yes. You just can not eat food.
Fasting is usually only required if you are having a "fasting blood glucose" blood test, or possibly a cholesterol test. Fasting counts as approximately 14 hours (but generally means "have your dinner the evening beforehand, but no breakfast or food until after your blood test, and only clear sugar-free fluids before your blood test") .
My doctors always tell me to take my meds with a little water if I am suppose to be taking any and to take them the morning before fasting blood work. You need to ask that question by calling your doctor's office and asking his secretary who will get the answer for you and call you back if she does not get it immediately.
