Comparison of Non-Fasting and Fasting Lipid Profile in Dyslipidemia Patients
Keywords:Total cholesterol, triglycerides, high-density lipoprotein, low density lipoprotein, fasting, nonfasting.
Dyslipidemia, a metabolic syndrome characteristic, includes increased flux of free fatty acids, high density
lipoprotein cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein, and triglycerides. One of the main topics of screening and
management in adult and child populations has been dyslipidemia
The aim of this study was to evaluate non-fasting and fasting when measuring the lipid profile of patients
This study was performed 80 male of dyslipidemia patients, they were monitored and their lipid profile
levels measured during non- fasting were collected after 2 hours of meal, and varying hours of fasting
periods includes (4 hours, 6 hours, and 8 hours).
In this study we did not found any significant clinical difference between non-fasting and fasting levels of
total cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein and high-density lipoprotein. Thus, we can use the non-fasting
blood samples to estimate lipid profile in follow-up the dyslipidemia patients. When comparing the fasting
hours, we observed mean triglyceride for all period of fasting were differences, as compared to the nonefforts fasting state significant differences P< 0.001
Finally, there is no need to make fasting lipid profile mandatory. This study suggests that should be made to
simplify the sampling of blood by replacing the profile of fasting lipids with the profile of non-fasting lipids.
