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 Re: Calculation of Total CholesterolMar 25, 2004[QUOTE=bigal123]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[/QUOTE] Hey bigal, your forumla is identical to the one you said was wrong.
