For example, when LDL-C is at the 3 cut points of 130, 160, and 190 mg/dL (3.36, 4.14, and 4.91 mmol/L) designated by NCEP-ATP III for commencing treatment based on various risk factors, and TG is moderately increased at 200 mg/dL (2.26 mmol/L), VLDL-C will range from 31.3 mg/dL (0.81 mmol/L) for Friedewald formula to 40.2 mg/dL (1.04 mmol/L) for De Long formula. Thus, the impact on LDL-C in the 130-190 mg/dL (3.36-4.91 mmol/L) range will be 8.9 mg/dL (0.23 mmol/L), a maximum difference of 6.8% at 130 mg/dL (3.36 mmol/L) and 4.6% at 190 mg/dL (4.91 mmol/L).
