Endoscopy and Colonoscopy preparation - diabetic hypo

Aaaargh!

Taking the poison treatment as preparation for tomorrow's endoscopy & colonoscopy, which I think did the treat, but despite two cans of full fat coke, I started getting the symptoms of a diabetic hypo, so I have had some glucose but also 8 jelly babies (not red or black).

Hoping that that's not going to have any impact on the test tomorrow, does anyone know?

I'm so sorry ,I don't know .I'm guessing not as I think they are looking for inflamation ,lumps and bumps .Structural changes that might indicate a cancerous growth .

But I feel a bit outraged ( if that's not a contradiction in terms ! ) and feel you should have better care /advice as a diabetic .

Hope you're feeling better now and the procedures are soon over and results quickly known .

PS Why not red and black jelly babies -)

I only used to have endpscopies but that has been nearly 11 years ago now - sorry, I forgot what I used to do.

Hi hope all goes well have just had the same two test, red &black are not recommended because any residue may look like you are bleeding somewhere. I was allowed foxes mints and orange, lime jelly. I am also diabetic so you can get advice.
