Enter the total cholesterol and the HDLc into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Atherogenic Coefficient. 

Atherogenic Coefficient Formula



  • AC is the Atherogenic Coefficient ()
  • TC is the total cholesterol
  • HDLc is the HDLc

To calculate Atherogenic Coefficient, divide the difference between the total cholesterol and the HDLc by the HDLc.

How to Calculate Atherogenic Coefficient?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Atherogenic Coefficient.

  1. First, determine the total cholesterol. 
  2. Next, determine the HDLc. 
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = AC = (TC-HDLc)/HDLc.
  4. Finally, calculate the Atherogenic Coefficient.
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

total cholesterol = 3.5

HDLc = 23
