I was told not to eat anything for 12 hours before but not about drinking. Just had the blood taken this morning, an hour after I had a smalll cup of decaf tea with a tiny bit of milk. Will this be a problem do you know?

I'm not been tested for glucose, Its for coeliac. Sorry, I should have said that before.

I had one of those mint breath freshener tiny little tablets before my glucose fasting test and it didn't affect it. Not sure that helps though, sorry

Thanks all. I've phoned the docs and they said it should be ok but put a note on the sample
