  • nothing special needs to be done but I'd make someone go with you. Not eating then getting that much sugar first thing in the am made me so nauseous I couldn't drive myself home

  • Didnt your Dr tell you?? Is it a fasting sugar test? Either way DONT eat or drink before the test. Brushing your teeth or drinking black no sugar/cream coffee before is ok. They usually dont want you to eat 6 hours before it.

  • I was allowed toast before mine. The drink is gross and it made me feel terrible while I drank it. I sill can not drink 7up, Sprite or anything like it to this day!

  • Oh and I found using a straw helped me to drink it faster. Good luck!

  • My dr didn't tell me to fast. She also could have mentioned that the hollow chocolate bunny that morning was a bad idea ;). I failed the 1st and had to do the second (which is awful and wouldn't recommend it)
