How Cholesterol Testing Works
Cholesterol testing will provide you with detailed information about your cholesterol and related chemistry that affect your heart’s health.
To get started, you can visit ARCpoint Labs of Martinez. Our trained technicians will collect samples for cholesterol testing. If cholesterol testing is performed alone, it is not necessary to fast. However, if the test is performed as part of a Lipid panel (as it often is), then fasting for 9-12 hours before the test is necessary. Only the consumption of water is permitted during this time. Individuals getting cholesterol tests should fast for 12-14 hours before collection.
While Lipid Profile tests can generally help you monitor your cholesterol, we recommend you consult with a specialist or doctor for further action needed upon your cholesterol test results.
