Enter the total cholesterol (mg/dL) and the HDL cholesterol (mg/dL) into the Cholesterol Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Cholesterol Ratio.

## Cholesterol Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Cholesterol Ratio.

CR = TC / HDL

• Where CR is the Cholesterol Ratio (Total:HDL)
• TC is the total cholesterol (mg/dL)
• HDL is the HDL cholesterol (mg/dL)

## How to Calculate Cholesterol Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Cholesterol Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

1. First, determine the total cholesterol (mg/dL).
• The total cholesterol (mg/dL) is given as: 200.
2. Next, determine the HDL cholesterol (mg/dL).
• The HDL cholesterol (mg/dL) is provided as: 50.
3. Finally, calculate the Cholesterol Ratio using the equation above:

CR = TC / HDL

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

CR = 200 / 50  = 4 (Total:1)

Example Problem #2:

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total cholesterol (mg/dL) = 300

HDL cholesterol (mg/dL) = 60
