HEALTH TIP

Preparing for a
colonoscopy may not be pleasant, but it’s
worth the effort.
The Harvard Medical School offers these
suggestions:
Cut down on fiber several days before the
scheduled colonoscopy. Avoid whole grains,
nuts, seeds, raw produce and dried fruit.
Stick to only clear liquids the day before.
Water, bouillon, clear juices, black coffee,
plain tea, popsicles, Jell-O, clear sodas and
sports drinks are generally acceptable.
Take the preparation as recommended by
your doctor. If it isn’t flavored, consider
adding a powdered drink (nothing blue,
purple or red), or lemon or lime to mask
the taste.
Be prepared to spend a lot of time in the
bathroom. Set aside with some magazines,
books or other reading material. Make sure
you’ve cleared your schedule for the day.
