Need to fast for these tests - but forgot to ask if I can have a cuppa - not sure I can hang out til 9.40

Nothing after midnight, so stock up now if it's a fasting test( had one last month)

Not even water?

Lol, I'm sure you can have water- even hot water Think they want your blood to be as 'pure' as possible- obviously I am completely non-medical!

thanks - will have to pretend it is a nice cuppa then...

Water and tablets if you need to take them. Nothing else for 12 hours before - sorry!
