    I've got a water deprivation test next Thursday to do at my local hospital and I've been told to not eat or drink anything after 8pm the night before and would like some advice on what I should do with regards to my medication as I don't want to have a hypo throughout the night, like I have been having for the past few weeks. Also should I take my morning insulin injections like I normally should or wait till I get to the hospital in the morning of the test.

    Speak with your diabetes team @akindrat18, they will advise you on what to do about your meds and insulin injection on the day.

    Spoken with my diabetes team and they said to miss the injections, take the metformin and bring my insulin to the hospital.
