High Cholesterol Board Index


The Friedewald Formula is normaly used to estimate LDL cholesterol. The only lipids that are directly read are TC, TG and HDL. The formal uses the following calculation:



Estimation of LDL Cholesterol = Total Cholesterol HDL Cholesterol VLDL Cholesterol*

* Estimation of VLDL Cholesterol = Trigs/5 (Trigs/2.2 for mmol/L)
Great explanation...


So... here is the calculation:

Divide your Triglycerides by 5 113/5 = 22.6


Now, the formula is:

250 (Total Cholesterol) - 22.6 (Tri-G) - 100 (HDL) = LDL


250 - 22.6 - 100 = 127.4 (LDL)
