I do this for a living and we ask our Patients not to eat or drink 20 minutes before we take their Temp

Since time was of the essence with this I did an internet search and found it's 20-40 minutes after eating or drinking anything.

And I did find that to be true - there was a big difference in temperature between right after I ate, in 10 minutes, 20 minutes, 30 minutes and 40 minutes. Well, less so between 30 and 40, but right after eating to 10 to 30 was significantly different.

2-3 minutes

Ok, it's been forever, years and years and years (10 or more, I think), since I took my temperature. I know you're supposed to not eat or drink a while to get an accurate reading. How long do I wait?
