    Gosh I cant have anything to eat or drink after 8:00 pm tonight and have to be there at 8:0am in the morn. I've never had this type of test done but from what I've read its testing my sugar. I'm gonna be a thursty girl.....I hope I dont have sugar....gosh I dont need that right now but I guess my neuro wants to rule it out because of my neuropathy. Wish me luck..I'll be dreaming of water..LOL

    When I have had similar tests done I was told to fast for 12 hours, but I could still drink water. I can't imagine that it makes a difference, but I certainly don't want you to mess up because of me. Might be a good question to ask in the future.

    Gosh it took forever. No I couldnt drink anything or eat anything and I couldnt smoke either. I got there at 7:50 am and finally left at 12:45pm with sore arms cause they stuck me with a needle 4 times. But I lived and glad its done and over. I felt so sorry for the little kids that came in and had to have blood drawn..they cried..it was so pitiful. Of course I couldnt take my meds this am including my zoloft so it mad big tears come to my eyes. Then I came home and turned tv on and watched soap Bold and Beautiful and cried my eyes out. Geezzhhh
