I'm going crazy, as I've been T1 for 10 or more years, but I'm confused. It's time for my annual check up, with the usual blood tests that precede the event. This year, when I booked it, the GP receptionist told me that I needed to fast for 12 hours, which is fair enough, but he also told me that I must not have any fluids - even water. I didn't query it at the time, but now, confronted with the test tomorrow, the thought of not a drop of water between now and 9.30 in the morning seems unusual, and I can't remember if I was told the same thing last year! What does everyone else do prior to their tests? Water, or no water?
