In this short video, I want to talk about the new cholesterol test guidelines, and why you should fast before a cholesterol test. 

In the past, it was required to fast for twelve hours before your cholesterol test. Now, you don’t have to fast. They now say that you can eat before your test because:

1. Eating doesn’t affect cholesterol that much.
2. It’s less hassle for the patient, doctor, and lab.

I think this is bad advice. When you eat before the test, you’re adding in so many different variables that could affect your cholesterol.

If you’re on keto, you’re consuming more fat. The fat in your blood (triglycerides) will go up if you consume fat in your meal. This can alter the test, and it won’t give you a consistent baseline when you test over time. The lipids in your blood will change depending on what you eat. 

I think it may be best to always do at least a twelve-hour fast before you get your cholesterol test.
