I use Muscle Milk after my workouts at the gym. Tomorrow (Wednesday) is my regular day for going to the gym. This week Friday I'm going in for a colonoscopy. According to the paperwork from the clinic I shouldn't eat (or I would imagine drink, too) anything with iron in it. I've checked the packaging of the Muscle Milk and it lists iron at 0.3 mg per scoop; I use 2 scoops, so it would be a total of 0.6 mg of iron. Is that too much?View Thread
I am scheduled to have a colonoscopy this Friday. I know that I am not to have certain things, like red meat and red vegetables, but how about other things? For example, may I have carrots? Or is everything from the broccoli family off limits? I take Amlodipine for my hypertension, and I know that I can continue taking that, but how about generic Claritin for allergies?View Thread
