Hi Dr Sharka How do you calculate total cholesterol to
I would explain as follows:
I understand your confusion. Let me explain as follows based on your uploaded blood lipid profile report:
Your total cholesterol level is 5.23
Your HDL level is 1.3
Your LDL level is 3.43
Total cholesterol/HDL is 5.23/1.3=4.023
LDL /HDL ratio is 3.43/1.3= 2.64
So, you can see that everything seems to be within the normal ranges. You are not at any increased cardiovascular risk related to your blood lipid profile.
So, just relax and don't worry about it!
I remain at your disposal for any further questions whenever you need!
