The LDL calculator estimates the LDL cholesterol on the basis of the proportional ratio of the HDL cholesterol and triglycerides.
LDL cholesterol is also known as bad cholesterol as it accumulates in the walls of the blood vessels. You are in real danger of a heart attack or stroke after a certain ratio of LDL cholesterol. You need to track the LDL ratio in your body for tracking LDL level using the LDL calculator. All cholesterols are not dangerous for your body as it is required to make the cell membrane and for healthy nerve tissues.
Our tool uses the Friedewald formula for estimating LDL cholesterol.
LDL = TC – HDL – 0.2 × TG
TC –Total Cholesterol
HDL – High-Density Lipoprotein
You can identify the amount of cholesterol in your body by the total cholesterol calculator.
What is LDL cholesterol if the Total cholesterol (TC) is 250, HDL is 40, and the TG is 100?
As we know that the LDL cholesterol calculations are as follows:
LDL = TC – HDL – 0.2 × TG
Putting all the values
LDL = 250-40-0.2 × 100
LDL = 250-40-20
LDL = 250-60
LDL = 190 mg/dL
You can use the LDL cholesterol calculator according to the instructions below:
The LDL normal range is between 100 to 129 mg/dL. If you have diabetes or heart disease, the normal range of LDL is below 100 mg/dL. For knowing my normal range of LDL you can use the free LDL calculator online.
If LDL calculation indicates, you have crossed a certain range then you need to reduce the consumption of saturated fats. Saturated fats like red meat, eggs, sweets, etc are major causes of LDL cholesterol. For keeping your LDL in a normal range, you can continuously track your LDL by the LDL calculator.
Eating a lot of foods high in saturated fats raises “bad” LDL cholesterol levels. Saturated fats are found in fatty cuts of meat and dairy products. No more than 10% of your daily calories should come from saturated fats.
The 5 major signs of LDL cholesterol are
It is necessary to check the LDL for people facing cardiovascular disorders.
|Low-Density Lipoprotein||Total Cholesterol||High-Density Lipoprotein||Triglycerides|
|100-129 mg/dl||200 mg/dl||40- 60 mg/dl||below 150 mg/dl|
