tatoo,

Follow the book and fast for at least 12 hours before the test and abstain from alcohol for AT LEAST 24 hours. Your high triglyceride is a large component of your bad TC/HDL ratio. You want a good an idea of what your body's capacity is to clear triglycerides from the blood with as little new formation as possible.
If you always test this way you will always be comparing apples with apples.

Ask for a homocysteine reading as well as a cardiac C-Reactive Protein.
