Lipid profile after breakfast

I had a lipid profile done after breakfast. I gave blood at 12 noon, breakfast at 10:30 am: Total cholesterol : 190 LDL : 72 HDL : 53 Triglycerides : 324 VLDL : 62 Can you give me an idea of what my actual numbers would be around (i.e., if the test was done correctly (fasting for 12 hours)). Thanks Thanks in advance ...

Lipid profile is a test to be done after fasting for 12 hrs so that you get proper readings of values.Doing it after breakfast is to be precise meaningless.To get correct reading please repeat other time after fasting 12hrs.
