  • Usually fasting for 9-12 hours before the test (only water permitted) and no alcohol for 24 hours before a VLDL Cholesterol test follow any instructions you are given.

  • An elevated level of VLDL cholesterol like elevated LDL cholesterol is considered a risk factor for heart disease and stroke.

  • The presence of high VLDL in addition to high LDL may affect the choice of therapy used to lower a person's cholesterol, such as lifestyle changes or drug treatment.
