An asymptomatic 47-year-old man comes for a preemployment examination. He has never been hospitalized. He is a computer programmer, and he plays handball once weekly. His maternal grandmother had type 2 diabetes mellitus, and a paternal uncle had heart disease. The patient's blood pressure is 126/80 mm Hg. Examination shows no abnormalities. His total serum cholesterol level is 225 mg/dL. Which of the following is the most appropriate next step in management?

) Step 2 American Heart Association cardiac diet

) Serum lipid studies while fasting

) Exercise stress test

) Oral cholestyramine and niacin therapy

) Oral pravastatin therapy at bedtim


Please respond what would be the answer, Cause I think serum lipid cholestrol do not vary with / without fasting.

so, diet control would be appropriate

I go with the fasting lipid profile first . 

I just googled it for a proof and found this :


Serum lipid profile has now become almost a routine test. It is usually done in fasting state due to certain limitations in non-fasting serum sample. In the recent past efforts have been made to simplify blood sampling by replacing fasting lipid profile with non-fasting lipid profile. However, fasting specimen is preferred if cardiovascular risk assessment is based on total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol or non-HDL cholesterol. A lot has yet to be done in this area. Till then we have to believe in fasting lipid profile for assessment and management of cardiovascular disease.
