Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

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
