... My doctor let me have black coffee 2 hours before the test.  I dunno why yours said no water after midnight?

 Wow, I'm supposed to go in for that this next week, but my Dr. didn't tell me not to eat or drink after midnight. He just told me to make sure that I was at the lab exactly one hour after I drank my "Orange flavored sugar" as he called it.

I didn't have to fast when I took it for my first one and I don't have to for this baby.

My doctor told me to go before breakfast and to fast. I of course didn't because I had to eat or I would have passed out and/or gotten sick. I passed the 1 hour test though.

So your body would burn off more of the sugar than usual. Especially cold water.
