High Cholesterol Board Index

Eating before a test has little or no effect on your HDL and total Cholesterol readings. What is affected is your Triglyceride readings. Since your LDL's are computed using your Triglyceride numbers they will be affected also. That's why you are directed to fast before a cholesterol test. There is no formula to convert from non-fasting to fasting.
