Can you drink diet soda before a blood fasting test

Common Questions and Answers about Can you drink diet soda before a blood fasting test


619345 tn?1310345021 I like the Weight Watchers diet....that way you can eat what you want if you have a craving, even McDonalds and stuff like that but you loose weight too. It's really the only thing that ever worked for me - I have no willpower and when I want something it drives me insane.......I don't know how 'quickly' you would lose the weight but you'd have a much better chance of maintaining it.
Avatar f tn Do not eat nothing before u get their and the soda is not that bad just taste like diet orange soda or grape
Avatar n tn Nuts - I always had a jar/can handy so I could eat a hand full before taking my Riba. Also peanutbutter on soda crackers or whole grain toast was easy. Everyday I would fill up my blender with fruits on hand, big scoop of ice cream and fruit juice to make a smoothie.
Avatar f tn No one disagrees that you can lose on a 500 cal diet with ow without HCG, but you have to look at the whole picture. How do you feel on the diet? Can you stick with the diet? Can you maintain your weight afterwards? 3 months ago, before I heard about HCG I attempted a 500 Calorie diet to reduce the affects of RA(Rhuematoid Arthritis). Actually I wanted to FAST because having been under a 14 day medically supervised fast (water only) 3 years ago, I knew what miraculous results I got.
1900462 tn?1352778902 yes most woman pass the test and all is good but they test you because there is a chance you can have it and a lg baby is just one of the risks... look into it... for my 1 hour test with my last pregnancy i ate before(here your allowed) and failed and so i didnt eat before for this pregnancy and failed the test again.... i passed the second tests each time...but because you did fail... even just a tiny bit you still need to know for sure....
Avatar m tn 2008 - fasting blood sugar 5.8 ( previous guideline was 4-6) 2009- fasting blood sugar 5.4 (HbA1c 5.9) 2010- fasting blood sugar 5.2(HbA1c 5.8) 2011- fasing blood sugar 5.2(HbA1c 5.7) 2012- fasting blood sugar 5.9(HbA1c 5.5) now normal guidelines are 3.6-5.5 i was surprised to see my fasting blood sugar level of 5.9 as I excercise regular, I don't smoke and I am non drinker, vegetarian and not overweight at all.
798555 tn?1292791151 Preprandial means before a meal. This is something you can do at home with a home glucose test meter. Your local pharmacy/drug store usually stocks them OTC. Read the instructions carefully. "How many foods do I need to do this test on?" Mostly those that "may" raise your glucose levels - fruits, starches, simple carbs. I started a food log journal for each meal, including snacks, marked my test results next to each entry, and used a process of elimination.
131073 tn?1252454452 After my first glucose test (which was a fasting glucose test) I went straight to the local hash house and had steak and eggs. Fasting followed by over-sweetened orange soda is not the way to start the day, LOL. Try some heavily protein oriented meal.
310089 tn?1232485023 The labs here have the drink for you, they give you 5 minutes to drink it, then you have to sit quietly for an hour before they will do the blood test. I think you have to drink the stuff there too, not at home...they want to make sure you drink it in their time limit.
Avatar n tn 1. Test first thing in the morning before having a meal or colored liquids to drink. This is called fasting (prandial) testing and should be between 8 to 10 hours after your last meal. No snacking in between these times. 2. Test 2-4 hours after your meal 3. Test before lunch & dinner 4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 Start a log book of your test results and the type of food consumed.
Avatar f tn The great thing about type 2 diabetes is that you can make a huge impact on it by the choices you make for food and drink. You can also get a blood sugar tester at the drug store. That helps, but I usually know when I'm low. Just a thought...have your hormones been tested? The sweating issue made me think of that. Good luck!
349463 tn?1333575176 I was one of them, but I ate a honey bun the day before. Doyou recall what you ate the day before your test? It could have been something you drank, like a soda or some juice...
8650265 tn?1421569013 If you eat correctly the day before that can alter the test... I say do what you do even on a regular day before the test unless the doctor tells you other wise.. Why I say this is because if you eat or drink something that you won't normally do it was alter the results then you take test and pass then if it really is a problem you won't know until it's to late. And I'm far from accusing you from harming your child I would be vex myself if someone said it to me..
390388 tn?1279639813 I test 6times a day before and after breakfast,before dinner,at bedtime, and beforeand after exercise.that may seem too much to you but before breakfast is a given as is after breakfast pretty safe to skip lunchi test before dinner to see how the day has affested my bg since breakfast. course befor bedtime is a must to make sure your bg will carry you through the night.
212753 tn?1275076711 I did eat 1-2 cookies about 3 hrs before the test not knowing I was getting a fasting test .. otherwise (just cause so busy) I didn't get to eat/drink anything much that day so I know I didn't eat any real food and recall ingesting a cookie to tide me over along with little water (thinking oh no the blood test may be tough and cause I may be dehydrated) ....
279415 tn?1217375230 It's like orange syrup that you put in soda, without the carbonation! Anyway, I did a 3-Hour glucose test a few weeks ago (and PASSED, thank You Jesus) and I had to go lay down in a back room because I started feeling so ill (and I wasn't pregnant!). And you're right... no news is good news! You usually get the results at your next appointment.
Avatar n tn Unless you move out in the woods somewhere far away from industry and pollution, we will be exposed to toxins, every day. Right now, we can only avoid them as best we can, keep a clean diet and a healthy attitude and mind. Keeping a healthy gut is KEY to staying well and healing disease, as what we absorb makes us ill, not neccessarely what we eat.
Avatar n tn My heart rate rises and I tach, my blood pressure also rises a lot. I can feel my heart beat in my head and if you look at my shirt, you can see it moving with my heart beat. I suffer from extreme anxiety due to the fact that I was awake when they cardioverted me last year. My heart problems really scare me. Now, my spouse is a CNA and records my bp and hr. They know it is high but she is scary to take me to the doctor as I dont want to be put on more medicine. But this hurts!
1423357 tn?1414258965 the next doctor appointment my blood glucose according to fasting blood glucose test was suddenly normal. My doctor had never heard of this side effect but was goin to ask a cardiologist.
865902 tn?1239312521 ” Phrases such as “supports prostate health” or “supports a healthy immune system” are big signs that you are being BS’d. 6. I never give patients medicines I would not take myself in the same circumstance. I know no doctors who do. It is fine to say “why do I need this medicine?” or “Is this medication really necessary?” but to ask “is it safe?” or “doesn’t this destroy the liver?” is kind of insulting. 7.
1761649 tn?1329235932 Keep in mind, I am not part of the medical community, it's up to us all to research and make a decision that is best for you. I did allot of research before I made this decision. It's the first time I have sought treatment. It was especially hard for me because I have never been ill from HCV. But I really believe in these 2 drugs. that's not to say I'm not being cautious. I'm doing all I can to follow the rules. I'm eating very strictly. Fruits and vegetables make up a great portion of my day.
Avatar n tn I think usually they recheck in 6-8 weeks. Be sure they do a fasting blood test and do not have any alcohol 24-48 hours before the test. Good luck!
Avatar n tn You may suggest that since you haven't had your period for 2 cycles to ask your doctor to do an ultrasound. But if you took a blood test recently and it came out negative then you defintely are not pregnant. You just might not be ovulating the way you should. Have you been using any birth control that may still be in your system? If you are not ovualting then your doctor would give you something to help you regulate your system, not to harm you. Hope this helps. Keep me posted.
233616 tn?1312790796 But sometimes you start to beccome insulin resistant years before you become diabetic. A fasting blood sugar above 100, an abnormal HOMA or an abnormal 2 hour glucose tolerance test would tell you whether you're IR and not yet diabetic.
356052 tn?1260208704 Strange though --- as soon as I was about 1 year POST TX --- I haven't had much desire for sugars... Now it's just in my tea or coffee --- and I drink a soda a day.... But other than that --- no real sweet tooth... Maybe a bowl of ice cream once every 2 weeks.... And candy bars stay in the candy dish now --- and I don't mow on desserts regularly either. Hmmmmmm. I'm wondering then - if the steatosis - combined with INF / RIBA (cause I took both) causes the pancreas to under or over react?
1160836 tn?1332333769 But in your case it just might be that you are prego I would say if you want you can test if you see a - then wait till AF is due. I wish all the best for you all and tons and tons of Baby dust... I will not test on till AF is past due. I dont want another let down. I go in tom for my blood work of 21cd so I hope I have some awesome numbers showing I O good this time...
Avatar n tn It seems that your symptoms are somewhat environmentally based, as you received them a few months after you arrived in Iraq. There is a possibility that your symptoms can be from an allergy or a sensitivity to something in your sleeping quarters, as when you wake up you seem to have the worst symptoms. HOw old is the pillow you were issued. Many times, dust mites are present in pillows, mattresses, etc. Good luck!
Avatar n tn I sincerely believe it was the aspartame causing my breathing problems. I've been drinking diet soda since I was little, about one can a day. I also work at a coffee shop, and whenever I had a drink, I would use the sugar free flavors. It feels so good to finally be able to breathe. I would definitely recommend cutting anything containing aspartame out of your diet. That stuff is pure poison..
162948 tn?1205256292 also and i know this for a fact as this happened to me march of 2006 when i found out i was pregnant with my one year old i had negative tests on cheap hpt's the cheaper ones only pick up the higher amounts of hcg where as if you pay the extra it picks up from 10 rather than 20ml of hcg it could be that you have a low dose of hcg and it is not picking it up try getting a blood test, if the blood test is negative then put it down to stress.
Avatar m tn If you react to those warning signs by switching to a low carbohydrate diet, you can keep the blood glucose levels pretty much normal by diet only even though you may be technically called a Type 2 diabetic. I'm walking proof. Less than one year ago, I stuck a fasting BG of 161. Today I regularly stick a fasting reading in the mid 80's with no medication. Make no mistake! I'm still a T2, and will always be.
