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