Lady who works for me has to have a blood test at 8:00 AM in the morning. Pretty basic lab work, plus looking for any thyroid malfunctions. So they tell her she has to do the standard 12 hour fast/only water for tonight.
Which really sucks, because she is hosting a pre-superbowl party tonight, and she really would like to be able to drink a little later than 8:00 PM tonight. She asked me if the blood test would really be any different or effected if she had a drink after 9:00 or 10:00 PM tonight, if she stopped at say 10 or 11:00 PM.
I told sorry, I'm a Ph.D. and not an M.D. so I don't have a clue, although I would suspect it really wouldn't make a difference.
Is there anyone here who is medically trained or experienced and knows the answer?
