A study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine has shown that fasting may not be necessary before cholesterol tests. Test results from over 200,000 people from a period of 6 months from a Calgary, Canada lab were used in this study. Total cholesterol and HDL varied less than 2%, LDL varied less than 10%, and triglycerides varied by 20% or less in people who had not fasted compared to those who had fasted at least 8 hours. Although current guidelines still suggest fasting before a cholesterol test, this recommendation is based on small studies. Based on the results of this study, do you believe guidelines may change to make cholesterol testing more convenient for patients?
