If having blood work done for physical in morning can you drink water before? Doctor said no food or coffee
Yes: Fasting labs are generally aimed at looking at blood lipid and glucose levels. These would generally be unaffected by moderate water intake prior to testing. Actually, being dehydrated when the sample is drawn may more likely cause abnormal values. A caution would be if you were to drink excessive amounts of water and diluted your blood. This would be unlikely in normal circumstances. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Fasting blood sugar 181.8, hba1c > 7%, taking all vitamins, exercise 6 hrs/week, eat no sugar, eat high fibre, drink water, juice, wt. 67kilo, ht 5'5"?
Look into Paleo : Your lab numbers suggest you're on the path to diabetes. Even though you don't eat "sugar" any fiber or starch that your body can digest turns into sugar and fruit juice is sugar.

The paleo approach can help you do both. ...Read more
Can drinking "smart water" or water with electrolyes that is carbonated before a full blood lipid panel/blood work alter results?
No: There is no such thing as "smart water". It is just a scam to separate the not so smart people from their money. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
