Question USA colesterol readings and Canadian readings

Can anyone tell me how to convert USA colesterol readings to Canadian. Your reading are in hundreds and ours are in 5.6 or 6.1 or 4.3 or something like that. Any help appreciated.

Google "Cholesterol Value Reporting Units". Right at the the top of the list is 'fat free kitchen'. Click on the link. This is the only conversion table I've been able to find.

There are two cholesterol/lipid conversion charts here. Google "healing hearts cholesterol conversion"

Thanks for this info. Have a friend in the UK and she's always inquiring about the conversion.

Re: USA colesterol readings and Canadian readings

My sister's TC is 6.2 mmol/l.
So I converted it in mg/dl, 6.2x38.67 = 240 mg/dl.
she said the normal range is within 3.2 - 6.3 mmol/l
If we convert it in USA range it will be over 200 mg/dl.
