The Cholesterol to High-Density Lipoprotein (Chol:HDL) ratio is a calculation derived from dividing the total cholesterol by the HDL cholesterol level. This ratio is used as an indicator of cardiovascular risk.

• High Ratio: A higher Chol:HDL ratio indicates a higher risk of heart disease. It suggests that there is a greater proportion of cholesterol in relation to the “good” HDL cholesterol, which is protective against heart disease. Generally, a ratio above 5.0 is considered high risk.

• Low Ratio: A lower ratio is more desirable and indicates a lower risk of heart disease. It reflects a higher proportion of HDL cholesterol relative to total cholesterol. A ratio below 3.5 is usually considered optimal.
