I am just curious this morning...........why is it that we are not suppose to drink anything w/ color?  My doc said if you can't see thru it you can't drink it doesn't matter if it has caffiene or not.  No coffee, cokes, dr. pepper for example.  So what is it about the color?  I forgot to ask him at the time and wouldn't bother him w/ a question like this.

I believe that you cannot have those things before a scope b/c the dark color shows up funny.  Could make you look like you have dark spots or blood when you really do not.  I have never heard of it being a regular restriction outside of a scope though?

No, this was after my colonoscopy and I was officially diagnosised w/ UC. Once I was diagnosised they told me if you can't see thru it you can't drink it. So I was just curious and wondering if anyone else is restricted from coffee, cokes, tea, etc. I drink water, apple juice w/out fructose because I am to stay away from fructose and cornsyrup, and diet sprite or 7UP.

Carbonation and/or caffeine does bother some people, but not all. Also, sugars bother some but not all. Ditto with dairy and gluten. The only real way to know what bothers you as an individual is to keep a food diary and look for patterns over a several month period.

That doesn't make sense to me, Gigi, unless he was talking about drinks you can't have before a scope.
