Quest Diagnostics rolls out more accurate, nonfasting cholesterol tests

Quest Diagnostics’ tests for low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol now use a new calculation that improves the tests’ accuracy and does not require the patient to fast ahead of the test. It is the first provider of nonfasting lipid testing.

The new calculation is designed to replace the standard Friedewald calculation used in cholesterol tests since 1972, Quest said in a statement. It is not affected by recent food intake and is based on a formula from Seth Martin, M.D., a cardiologist at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, from whom Quest has licensed the calculation.

The change in calculation does not affect pricing or insurance coverage, Quest said.

"Fasting for eight to 12 hours visiting a patient service center for a blood draw in the morning is challenging and may deter many patients from participating in lipid testing. Now, millions of people no longer have to go through this process to receive a reliable lipid test result through Quest Diagnostics," said Jay Wohlgemuth, senior vice president, R&D, medical, and chief medical officer at Quest Diagnostics, in the statement.

well, I think that one day some scientist discovered that if you get bored enough you can find different ways to do things. Like the Total Cholesterol. What it is, is that you take the common ingredience in all food, then add it together. Everything
