Enter the total triglyceride levels (mg/dL) and the total hdl level (mg/dL) into the Triglyceride to HDL Ratio Calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the Triglyceride to HDL Ratio. 

Triglyceride to HDL Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Triglyceride to HDL Ratio. 

  • Where THDL is the Triglyceride to HDL Ratio ( )
  • T is the total triglyceride levels (mg/dL) 
  • HDL is the total hdl level (mg/dL) 

To calculate the triglyceride to hdl ratio, divide the total triglyceride levels by the hdl level.

How to Calculate Triglyceride to HDL Ratio?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Triglyceride to HDL Ratio.

Example Problem #1:

  1. First, determine the total triglyceride levels (mg/dL). 
    • The total triglyceride levels (mg/dL) is given as: 30.
  2. Next, determine the total hdl level (mg/dL). 
    • The total hdl level (mg/dL) is provided as: 25.
  3. Finally, calculate the Triglyceride to HDL Ratio using the equation above: 


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

THDL = 30 / 25 = 1.2 ( )

Example Problem #2: 

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

total triglyceride levels (mg/dL) = 60

total hdl level (mg/dL) = 50

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

THDL = T / HDL = ?
