As the new year begins, many people renew their efforts to improve their health and often have lab tests, among them their cholesterol levels.

Even though the lab tests are the same, cholesterol levels are given in two different sets of numbers.

Almost everywhere except the United States they are given in minimoles per liter (mm/L), but in the US and a few other places they are given in milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL).

To convert these results, we've posted a chart (see the link below). You may find it handy to print it out so you can refer to it later.

These conversions are only for cholesterol. They do not apply to triglycerides or other lab test.
