Why do u have to stop diary products a few days before a colonoscopy?

Clear liquids: are recommended for the colonoscopy prep in order to optimize visualization.

Several variables:: The prep for the colonoscopy + the exam itself should have largely emptied your colon, which can hold quite a bit of material.
