Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides ratio calculator
Cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides ratio calculator explains you what your TC, HDL, LDL and triglyceride levels mean and whether you are under any risk for heart and cardiovascular diseases. The calculator shows you interpretation of your cholesterol levels and the TC/HDL, LDL/HDL and triglyceride/HDL ratios.
Elevated total cholesterol is not necessarily an alarm and doesn't always present the whole truth about the condition of the body, while elevated triglycerides in the blood increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases, including risk of coronary artery disease (ischemic heart disease), risk of heart attack and stroke, more than elevated total cholesterol.
Do you have results in mmol/l? How to convert mmol/l to mg/dl?
For total, HDL, and LDL cholesterol multiply mmol/l by 38.67, for example 4.5 [mmol/l] x 38.67 = 174 [mg/dl]
For triglycerides multiply mmol/l by 88.57, for example 1.4 [mmol/l] x 88,57 = 124 [mg/dl]
