Cholesterol HDL, LDL, Triglycerides Ratio Calculator

If you already know all four measured values use this improved ratio calculator

International Users: NEW SI (mmol/L) version now available here

Believe it or not I have somewhat elevated blood cholesterol numbers and I just received the latest data from my doctor. But being the typical numbers geek, I want to analyze the numbers to death just for the sheer joy of it. First, off there does not seem to be a good working "find the missing value" calculator for cholesterol numbers on the internet when the math is so incredibly easy.

Enter any three of the following numbers and the calculator will find the fourth missing value, and then it will tell you the ratios and how good they are. You can read the article from the American Heart Association on desirable levels.

The articles on the Total Cholesterol/HDL and on HDL/LDL ratios were from eMedTV, and the article on triglycerides over HDL ratio is from Your Medical Detective.


Total Cholesterol mg/dL
HDL (High density lipoprotein) mg/dL
LDL (Low density lipoprotein) mg/dL
Triglycerides mg/dL
