Non-fasting versus fasting cholesterol measurement
Fasting for cholesterol measurement has long been the accepted convention. Recent research expounded in clinical guidelines indicates that nonfasting cholesterol measurements predict outcomes at least as well as fasting cholesterol measurements. In most-but not all-clinical scenarios, fasting is not necessary. This article provides clinical recommendations based on the literature.
