Cholesterol reading help
Hey guys and gals, my doctor wants me to go on a low cholesterol diet because my "LDL is a bit high". I would like to form my own opinion but can't understand the format it was given to me in. Maybe someone can help me out?
Cholesterol 5.7 mmol/L
I am use to seeing numbers like "240" or "50" and stuff. I am assuming its a decimal point movement but not sure. Also, taking thoughts/suggestions.
