Those two are known as lipids and, ever since I remember, have required 12 or 14 hour fasting before the blood is drawn. Now, that seems to have changed but this is the first time I've read about this.

As the article states "it is not well known". I also interpreted it to mean that it's what's in the serum at the time or, rather, either your ability(inability) to process fats or a dietary flag. Makes sense to me. Fasting is an abnormal state for the body. I wonder, in the future, if they will end up doing "lipid tolerance tests" like a glucose tolerance tests and do a fasting sample then load the body with lipids (fish and chips????) then draw blood at one hour intervals to see how your body handles it. imho, it's the inability to clear the blood that would cause plaque deposits.
