I have been trying to get straight the significance of postprandial
triglyceride clinical test, especially in diabetics, and how it is
affected by dietary carbohydrates.  My wife is always tested for
triglycerides as well as cholesterol when she goes to the doctor.  It
is not clear to me what exactly is being measured by a fasting serum
triblyceride test.  Presumably not chylomicrons.  Puzzled.
