Who should monitor his/her cholesterol levels?
Click Here to make sense of your lipid panel report
Interpreting the numbers
Cholesterol levels are measured in milligrams (mg) of cholesterol per deciliter (dL) of blood in the United States and some other countries. Canada and most European countries measure cholesterol in millimoles (mmol) per liter (L) of blood.
For the time being the form above only provides interpretation for lipid panel reports giving the results in mg/dL. I am working on it to provide the interpretation for reports in mmol/dL as well – this will be out in a few days, just keep a check on this page.
Over the next few days, I will provide a few more guidelines on diet and medical treatments, as well as information on why keeping a close watch on your lipid panel report is important.
