The Cholesterol Calculator

Hardly a day goes by when I don’t hear someone refer (usually in a tone of lament) to his or her cholesterol levels. This is unfortunate for many reasons, not least the fact that cholesterol continues to lose clout as a reliable indicator of cardiac health.
 
Nevertheless, we aren’t likely to start ignoring our blood lipid panel results anytime soon, so we might as well learn to understand them.  A few months ago, I posted about my effort to do just that
 
And it really was a bit of an effort.  Formulas, calculations, ratios…  Not everyone wants to do the math.  While I highly recommend going through the process at least once, to enchance your understanding of it, there’s nothing wrong with getting a little help from your handy-dandy computer.
 
And so, without further ado, I introduce to you The Cholesterol Calculator!

To download a copy of The Cholesterol Calculator, follow this link to box.net and log in as follows:
Email: NLReader [at] gmail [dot] com
Password: NLReader

Under the My Files tab, you’ll find a folder labeled Health. In the folder, you’ll find The Cholesterol Calculator by InTheNightlife.

Using the calculator is simple. Just fill in the BLUE fields with your latest blood lipid test results (the default numbers are mine; just replace them with yours), and the PINK fields will populate with your Iranian-calculated LDL and all the applicable ratios.
