Cholesterol US/SI unit conversion factors

Postby canadian help » Fri Mar 11, 2005 12:38 am

If you come across SI units in your reading, here are the conversion factors for lipids and some examples to help you translate them into the U.S. values.

Example: Total serum cholesterol 5.20 mmol/L (millimole per liter) = 200 mg/dL 250 mg/dL = 6.46 mmol/L Conversion factor 0.02586 To convert mmol/L to mg/dL: divide mmol/L by conversion factor To convert mg/dL to mmol/L: multiply mg/dL by conversion factor

Example: LDL-cholesterol 3.36 mmol/L = 130 mg/dL Conversion factor 0.02586

Example: HDL-cholesterol 0.9 mmol/L = 35 mg/dL Conversion factor 0.02586
