How long does cholesterol from food(ex. shellfish) stay in the body after it is consumed?

Posted by o2bnmn

If I have shellfish or salmon one or two days  before I have my cholesterol checked, how much will that intake affect my total cholesterol count levels for a cholesterol exam?

The affect of shellfish or salmon on your cholesterol only applies when it is a steady part of your diet, consumed several times a week. Consuming shellfish or salmon a day or two before your exam wont be main reason for high cholesterol.
