Dr. Scranton may order lab tests to be done for you. Some of these lab tests may require that you do not eat or drink after midnight, the evening before the lab work is performed. Please check to make sure that this does/does not apply to you. If you are told that you are to be fasting or NPO (nothing by mouth) for your particular test, that means you cannot eat or drink anything other than water, black coffee (NO SUGAR OR CREAM), or unsweetened tea. Check with the medical assistant or doctor as to whether you should refrain from taking your regular medications the morning the lab work is to be drawn. In most cases, you will take your medicines as usual. It is very important that you follow the instructions that you are given carefully so that your lab work won't have to be repeated unnecessarily.
