For sure if you don't drink it black you can't have it. I think they don't want you to even have black coffee. They told me not to even have diet coke.

My dr allows me to have one cup of coffee, black.    My previous dr did not even allow that.

I do, but I drink it black.  My doctor said it's okay.  I forgot and did it one time and the results were exactly the same, so that's when I asked her.

I've always been told black-unsweetened (no sugar no splenda,equal,sweet n low etc.) is ok.



Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

Coffee during 12 Fast??

I used to drink or eat nada after midnight.  Then, after numerous sticks to try to find a vein I was asked if I had anything to drink.  They told me never to do that as it was making it so much harder to get some blood.  I was told that black coffee would be fine.  Still takes more than one stick though! 

You do need to ask your Doc though.  Different tests might have different rules.

Tom, get a few bottles of water and drink those.  You can have all the water you want.  Keeping yourself well hydrated will help in getting a vein.
