High cholesterol, blood test error?
I took a fasting blood test last Thursday.
However, about four hours prior to the blood test, I ate a sugary peanut-butter granola bar.
My results are in, everything is normal, but my bad cholesterol is at 136. How bad is this? Can I blame it on a granola bar (it would help!)?
I am 18, nonsmoking.
Height weight proportionate.
