I just had mine done, and you need to fast if you can to get the best reading. The results take a minimum of 2 days, and you will probably get an executive profile from your doctor, reading other levels of chemicals in your body besides Cholesterol. I was sent to this site for help reading my results : http://www.americanheart.org/presenter.jhtml?identifier=183
