Recent Western guidelines recommend non-fasting lipid profiles to manage dyslipidaemia. We explored its applicability to an Asian population. We determined the differences between an overnight fasting and non-fasting cholesterol profiles of patients with type-2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) in Singapore. We studied 470 multi-ethnic Asian adult patients with T2DM and dyslipidaemia from 2 primary care clinics in Singapore.
