Lipid profile is not just a cholesterol test, as it also includes the most important examinations which assess your lipid metabolism as a whole.
Lipids are analysed from a blood sample that is collected after fasting for 12 hours. Do not eat anything or drink anything other than water during the 12 hours before sample collection. You can take your medications normally in the morning.
You can choose to receive the test results via text message to your mobile phone. Please inform the nurse about this when arriving for your appointment to ensure that your phone number is recorded in the system before your test appointment is saved.
Note! Ordering a test does not include a laboratory appointment. Once you have ordered your tests, please also book an appointment to your nearest laboratory.
