Total Cholesterol Calculator

Cholesterol levels vary by age, weight, and gender. Everyone over the age of 20 should get their cholesterol levels measured at least once every 5 years. Your total cholesterol includes low-density lipoprotein (LDL) or “bad” cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein (HDL) or “good” cholesterol and triglycerides. Increased level of cholesterol may be due to unhealthy lifestyle choices which can be prevented and treated.
