[QUOTE=50176702]The figures for my mum doesn't seem to fit in the formula which zip or the web told me (i.e. HDL+LDL+Triy/5):

HDL 63
LDL 150
Triy 77
TC 247

There comes my question.

Anyway thanks for the feedback. I agree it's no good asking things that are already plenty there on the web.[/QUOTE]

No the formula is wrong the correct one is
Total cholesterol minus HDL minus the (Triglycerides divided by 5)
So here is an example Chol.=174 Trig= 296 HDL= 54 LDL=60.8
174 - 54=120
296. divided by 5=59.2
120
-59.2
60.8

Hey bigal, your forumla is identical to the one you said was wrong. You said:

LDL = TC - HDL - (Trigs/5)

Which just happens to be the same exact forumula as:

TC = LDL + HDL + (Trigs/5).
