Thanks everyone! Your answers are reassuring (e.g. I'm freaking out a lot less now). I'm scheduled to go back in about a month for retesting.

+1 My thoughts exactly, those numbers look good.

Actually your lipid results, although skewed by not being done in fasting mode, look good. I would not say that 224 TC is bad by any means. The information related to studies I have seen place the lowest mortality from all causes as TC between 200-240. 80HDl also looks beautiful to me.

Without fasting, your results are kind of irrelevant. Though there are people who take the test unfasted and still get "good" numbers. (Note: We hate them. Not really.)

Get tested again, after fasting, to get accurate results.

I'd go a step further than Bill suggests and get a new doctor. Really, any doctor who would order blood tests at that time of day w/o asking if you'd eaten (or presuming you had) raises a flag to me. There's a reason you fast for these tests! Even fasted there are different contexts that can alter lipids one way or another, but at least the comparison is "on a level playing field". I wouldn't be one bit concerned over your results.

Of course it was high, bacon-eggs-coffee !! :) lol. You don't need to worry about your cholesterol, but you do need to tell them you ate bacon before the test and have them toss the results. At some point in the future a life insurance company or Obamacare could use that information against you. Get your test done in a properly fasted state, it will be fine and be careful out there!
