Fasting?
When you fast for the diabeties screening does that include drinking anything but water? I've tired not to eat too much sugar this week. I go for my appointment tomorrow and was just curious if i'm not suppose to drink juices or tea or anything like that.

Nothing to eat or drink after midnight and my appointment was at 8:30 the next morning. I did that for both the 1 hour and the 3 hours test.
I fail the 1/hr but pass the 3-hrs, thanks goodness :)
