Turnaround time is defined as the usual number of days from the date of pickup of a specimen for testing to when the result is released to the ordering provider. In some cases, additional time should be allowed for additional confirmatory or additional reflex tests. Testing schedules may vary.
For more information, please view the literature below.
Serum (preferred) or plasma and random urine
3 mL serum or plasma and 10 mL urine
1 mL serum or plasma and 2 mL urine
Red-top tube, gel-barrier tube, or green-top (lithium heparin) tube. Do not use oxalate, EDTA, or citrate plasma and plastic urine container.
Separate serum or plasma from cells within 45 minutes of collection. Lipid panels are best avoided for up to three months following acute myocardial infarction, although cholesterol can be measured in the first 24 hours.
Collect random urine without preservatives. pH must be 4 to 8.
Maintain specimens at room temperature.
Patient should be on a stable diet, ideally for two to three weeks prior to collection of blood. Fasting is not necessary for this profile, however fasting for 12 to 14 hours prior to collection of the specimen is recommended where the triglyceride value provides a priori diagnostic information such as screening for familial hypercholesterolemia or early onset heart disease, pancreatitis, or confirming hypertriglyceridemia.
This test is intended to help inform the clinician about the presence of hyperlipidemia as an index to cardiovascular disease and to identify patients with chronic kidney disease.
LDL cholesterol cannot be calculated if triglyceride is >800 mg/dL.
Lipid Profile With Non‐HDL Cholesterol: See individual tests.
Kidney Profile ‐ creatinine: kinetic jaffe. Albumin: immunoturbidimetric
The relationship between diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and chronic kidney disease is widely recognized. Among individuals with type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality. Chronic kidney disease occurs in 20% to 40% of patients with diabetes and may be present at the time of diagnosis.
While not considered to be a clinical entity itself, individuals with prediabetes are at increased risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Additionally, observational evidence has linked prediabetes with early nephropathy, chronic kidney disease, small fiber neuropathy, diabetic retinopathy, and increased risk of macrovascular disease.
