Can I complete a Check-up screening package and perform the GI screening on the same day?
Yes, you can; however, it is not recommended to do both on the same day. To complete both, you would need to fast for almost 20 hours. Check-up packages require patients to fast for 9 hours before blood tests and the abdominal ultrasound. Then, you would need to continue fasting throughout the check-up process, followed by approximately 5-6 hours of fasting during the GI screening procedure before eating or drinking anything.
