do I need to fast for a colonoscopy?

Description of the question: Do I need an empty stomach for a colonoscopy Supplementary explanation: Do I need an empty stomach for a

colonoscopy ? Answer: An empty stomach is required for a colonoscopy. This test is to observe the ileocecal region through the anus. Only when the intestines are clean can the lesions of the intestinal mucosa be clearly observed, such as polyps, ulcers, inflammations, tumors and other lesions. In addition, bowel preparation is also required. After taking the medicine to clean the bowel, the patient needs to drink a lot of water and perform appropriate activities to increase peristalsis and promote fecal emptying. When the stool is dilute water or clear water, it indicates that the bowel preparation is qualified.

Answer: Hello, according to your description, colonoscopy is an inspection method that inserts the colonoscope into the ileocecal cavity through the anus, and observes the colon lesions from the mucosal side. It is currently the best choice for diagnosing colorectal mucosal lesions. It transmits the image of the colonic mucosa to the computer processing center through the electronic camera probe installed at the front end of the colonoscope, and then displays it on the monitor screen. Variety. Colonoscopy requires fasting and enema preparation before colonoscopy can be performed. Reservation required.

Hope my reply is helpful to you.
