NO


You will be instructed to take a clear liquid diet and not to eat after the evening prior to the procedure. The most important part is to drink ALL the Golitely which will cause diarrhea until stool completely clears and only water is what you see. Its very important to be clean so that minute polyps can be seen and removed and no lesion missed.

Define clear liquids


"Clear liquids" are any food that is not solid at room & body temperature that will allow sunlight to pass through: ice pops, jello, broth without particles, juices without particulates, water, light tea. Avoid red-dyed foods that may leave residue that looks like blood to the colonoscopist. Confirm your selection with the performing doctor--you don't want to have to re-do the test due 2 bad prep.

Possibly


Colonoscopy is an elective procedure. If you're unwell for any reason, it will be postponed. However, what you consider to be too low may not be the same as what the doctor considers to be too low.

Yes Possibly


Although Malabsorption is less likely later in life. I would suggest thinking about acquired food allergy or intolerances instead as a more likely possiblity. This often leads to IBS like symptoms. Most common food intolerances are Dairy and Wheat. Other ones are Nuts, shellfish. Try eliminating one food group in your diet at a time and see if this helps your symptoms.

Possible malabsorption. What's your calcium? High calcium with low phosphorus is a sign of low parathyroid hormone. Celiac disease often causes osteopenia and "IBS" symptoms.

Your doctor


should know what medications you're taking, and be able to advise you appropriately. Talk with your doctor openly about your plans. If you present to radiology with solids still in your colon, they won't be able to do your study. You and your doctor need to devise an appropriate plan.

You may still be iron-deficient if taking an occasional vitamin-with-iron tablet gives a false-normal serum level. A serum ferritin and some other labs would be in order. A check for thal minor and reticulocyte count may also be appropriate.

Most likely it is


a coincidence given your history although one should look for any signs of fever, chills, sweats or general malaise or not feeling well along with any pain more than usual especially with spasm that does not improve with rest. There is a remote possibility that an infection can occur in a disc via the circulation when one has had a procedure in a region with known bacteria like the gut or mouth.
