  • dumb VAP test question

    Do you need to fast for 12 hours for a VAP test like a std lipid profile?

    Thanks

    From what I understand its actually not required for the VAP but I fast anyway. Usually because I often get the chemistry/cbc panels done at the same time (but I think that only requires fasting because the basic cholesterol test is included in those too)

      My endo did the VAP test as a follow up to my basic lipid panel (i.e., it wasn't a separate blood draw for me), so I was fasting for the lipid test. I assumed this was always the way it is done, but I don't really know.
