CONVERTER mmol to mg/dL conversions for HDL, LDL and cholesterol



HDL,LDL, cholesterol

mmol/L to mg/dL    /    by 0.0259 to get mg/dL

mg/dL to mmol/L    *    by 0.0259 to get mmol/L

HDL,LDL, cholesterol

mmol/L to mg/dL    /    by 0.0259 to get mg/dL

mg/dL to mmol/L    *    by 0.0259 to get mmol/L

Triglycerides

mmol/L to mg/dL    /    by 0.01129 to get mg/dL

mg/dL to mmol/L    *    by 0.01129 to get mmol/L

EXAMPLE 1 DAD

Cholesterol          4.2  mmol/L    162.16 mg/dL

Triglyceride          0.8 mmol/L    70.85  mg/dL

HDL                  1.11 mmol/L    42.85  mg/dL    needs to be >60mg/dL

LDL                   2.7 mmol/L   104.24 mg/dL     needs to be <70mg/dL

Chol/HDL Ratio       3.8  mmol/L

 

EXAMPLE 2 MUM

Cholesterol          7.6 mmol/L     293.43 mg/dL

Triglyceride         1.7 mmol/L    150.57 mg/dL

HDL                 1.71 mmol/L   66.02 mg/dL      needs to be >60mg/dL

LDL                  5.1 mmol/L 196.91 mg/ dL     needs to be <70mg/dL

Chol/HDL Ratio       4.4 mmol/L

 

LDL's

Bad Fats and promote atherosclerosis (narrowing of the arteries)

An LDL level of less than 100 mg/dL is optimal for CAD prevention,

A level of 70 mg/dL or less is now recommended for persons with existing heart disease

HDL's

Good Fats and promote opening up of the arteries

> 50 mg/dL (≈ 1.3 mmol/L) man or >60 mg/dL (≈ 1.6 mmol/L) in a woman a reduced risk of atherosclerosis.

>75 mg/dL (≈ 2 mmol/L) man or woman is associated with a very low risk of atherosclerosis.

Less than 40 mg/dL (≈ 0.8 mmol/L) in a man <50 mg/dL (≈ 1 mmol/L) in a woman increases the risk.

TRIGLYCERIDES

Reduction of triglycerides to 60 mg/dl.
