UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE!
Rik, I wanted to post the chart from this site earlier. It gives the all-causes relationship to total cholestrol.http://wholehealthsource.blogspot.com/2 ... ality.html
You'll have to convert to mmols (divide by 18) but I think you're aiming too low.
oops! I just discovered that that is correct for Glucose, not Cholesterol (different molecular weights).
Here in the UK, the test should be lower than 5.0 mmol/l - yours works out at around 24.0 mmol/l
So, I was wrong, Johnny, your test works out at 11.1 (still twice the 'Happy UK doctor' limit).
To convert mmol/l of Glucose to mg/dl, multiply by 18.
To convert mg/dl of Glucose to mmol/l, divide by 18.
To convert mmol/l of HDL or LDL cholesterol to mg/dl, multiply by 39.
To convert mg/dl of HDL or LDL cholesterol to mmol/l, divide by 39.
To convert mmol/l of triglycerides to mg/dl, multiply by 89.
To convert mg/dl of triglycerides to mmol/l, divide by 89.
To convert umol (micromoles) /l of creatinine to mg/dl, divide by 88.
To convert mg/dl of creatinine to umol/l, multiply by 88.
I told the Nurse today as she was taking my blood, that I consume 60 eggs a week. She nearly fell off her chair! This was in answer to her question 'So, Mr Blades....what have you done to lower your Cholesterol since last year?'.
I managed to get last years readings from her though:
Date 3rd September 2008
TOTAL Cholesterol=7.9 mmol/L or 308.1 mg/dL
LDL=5.5 mmol/L or 214.5 mg/dL
HDL=1.4 mmol/L or 54.6 mg/dL
Triglycerides=2.2 mmol/L or 195.8
Cholesterol/HDL Ratio 5.6 mmol/L or 218.4 mg/dL
Back then, I ate 6 eggs a week!....should have the results from todays test tomorrow
