Well,

I have proof that the total cholesterol (non fasting & fasting) are different....

When I had my non fast blood test in Nov 2001, my TC was 196.... when I had my fasting blood test in Nov 2001, my TC was 222. So, in my case, the #'s changed by 20 something points!!

No, it wasnt a mistake.... I had a NON FASTING test in Nov 2001 when I donated blood and it was 196.... Then, in the same month/year, had a FASTING test at my doctor's office and it was 222.
