To calculate your cholesterol ratio in mmol/L, you just have to make sure both values – total cholesterol and HDL-cholesterol – are in the same units. Then you divide the total cholesterol number by HDL cholesterol level:
Cholesterol ratio in mmol/L = Total cholesterol (mmol/L)/HDL-cholesterol (mmol/L)
Doctors consider a good total cholesterol HDL ratio to be 5, but a ratio under 3.5 is ideal.
A cholesterol level of less than 170mg/dl is considered good for people under 19 years. Whereas for adults above 20 years, up to 130 mg/dl is fine.
Your VLDL level should be less than 30 mg/dL (milligrams per deciliter). Anything higher than that puts you at risk for heart disease and stroke.
Since VLDL and triglycerides are linked, you can lower VLDL level by lowering your triglyceride level. You may be able to lower your triglycerides with a combination of losing weight, diet, and exercise. It is important to switch to healthy fats, and cut back on sugar and alcohol. Some people may also need to take medicines.
The equation to calculate your LDL.
Transform the Friedewald equation:
LDL = TC - HDL - 0.2 × TG
TC = LDL + HDL + 0.2 × TG
No There are limitations to the Friedewald equation for LDL calculation. We can't use the formula if:
The following formula is used to calculate the urine protein creatinine ratio calculator.
PTCR = UP / UC
PTCR= P / C
Only Call your healthcare provider if you have any questions about the results of your urine test. Your provider will explain the results and recommend follow-up tests or treatments.
