Hi there, I am Dr.Customerand pleased to help you with your question. The bloodworks for pain are not including cholesterol and blood sugar. You only search for the pain's origin and don't order tests that aren't helpful for this issue. But, of course, it is good to know these parameters when you are middel aged or older. In that case you could ask your doctor to have them tested, too. All the best!
