  • they told me not to drink anything for so many hours before the test was taken i don't think the little bit of toothpaste will make a difference i had to take the sugar test three times and they always gave me a little to drink while i was waiting

  • i had water. i had to fast for 12 hours. i was working in a 100 degree factory at the time. i filled a glass with ice that way there wasnt as much water in it. and i sipped on that all night as it melted
    it didnt mess with mine. my doc told me to drink as little as possible.

  • I've taken 2 test and getting ready for the third. My Dr. says I can have all the water I want but NOT to use toothpaste when brushing. Water is it. Maybe I'm just so close to the line, IDK. Good luck, I know it's not a fun test
