Have to have both procedures done on Thursday - Not allowed to eat or drink anything at all for 12 hours prior. That in itself does not worry me - but what I was wondering about is the use of the nuclear agent while on a pump and CGM, as well as the imaging portion. Am I going to have to remove my Pod or CGM? Is there any chance that the test will alter readings?
I had to disconnect my pump and to remove the transmitter from my Dexcom sensor when I did a Calcium CT scan last year; however, when I did a Nuclear Stress Test, I did not have to remove either one of them - even for the imaging.
I don’t think they impacted the results and they did make me feel more comfortable about my BG during the test.
