Patient : I;m presently in the Philippines and my friend has taken a cholesterol test. His results were LDL 2.96 HDL 2.33 and triglycerides are 1.69.
I'm used to the american standard of 200, 240 ect. How do I convert this to our standard or at least to what I'm used to reading? He did eat 3 hours prior to his test.
