Non Fasting Lipid Testing For Professionals
Research by the European Heart Journal in 2016 showed that fasting had little or no effecting on full lipid profile results. Knowing the full Lipid profile is critical in fully establishing the point of care cardiac risk factors.
Conducting partial assessments, total cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein only for example, can mask conditions such as metabolic syndrome from elevated triglycerides. In addition, elevated levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) brings a risk of blood clotting as LDL collects on the walls of internal blood vessels. Whilst elevated HDL levels can help reduce risk, if the subject has both elevated HDL and LDL there is an issue, which must be investigated.
