Cholesterol level in France is given in gr/litre. In Britain the unit used is mmol/litre. How to convert one into the other?

You need the molar mass. For cholesterol, it is 386.654 g/mol (use same value for total, HDL, LDL). Note this molar mass, in general, is different for each substance and is equal to the molecular weight.

So to convert 2 g/L (US 200 mg/dL)
2 g/L x 1 mol/386.654 g = 0.00517 mol/L = 5.17 mmol/L

What is the difference between LDH and LDL cholesterol levels?
Are they both bad cholesterol levels? I seem to find more info on LDL's and not so much on LDH, but LDH is listed on my cholesterol chart. Should the levels be read the same when comparing numbers?

How much cholesterol is in egg whites as opposed to the yolks? One of my co-workers told me that there are equal amounts of cholesterol in both the white and the yolk.
I told her that wasn't true because the yolk is what has all the calories, fat, and cholesterol in it, so I'm doing a good thing by eating egg white omelettes, as opposed to regular ones that include the yolk. Or am I? Who's right?

What are some good cholesterol lowering foods? Know of any good recipes that are good for you for meals? I am looking for some good cholesterol lowering foods and also some low cholesterol meals that are yummy. Hereditary reasons have caused me to get on a cholesterol medicine but I also want to be proactive in what I eat.
