Don’t drink alcohol before a cholesterol test

Consuming alcohol before taking a cholesterol test may affect your triglycerides levels (one of the four components measured in your lipid panel), causing unnecessary concerns. Therefore, 24 hours prior to any cholesterol test, it’s imperative to steer clear of any alcoholic beverages.

Doctors also recommend avoiding sweets, high-fat foods, and overeating in general. You can indulge in a donut (no more than two!) afterward. For more information regarding cholesterol, see also 10 Alarming Symptoms Cholesterol Is Damaging Your Legs!
