Abstract A study to determine the utilization of calculated low density lipoprotein (c-LDL) cholesterol and measured low density lipoprotein (m-LDL) cholesterol was conducted. The test results of total cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL-cholesterol and m-LDL-cholesterol from the same individuals aged> 18 years who had the tests done at the Department of Clinical Pathology, Faculty of Medicine Siriraj Hospital during January to December 2004 were retrieved. The c-LDL-cholesterol level was computed using Friedewald formula. There were two data sets i.e. the m-LDL-cholesterol cut-off level derivation data set (784 subjects) and the m-LDL-cholesterol cut-off level validation data set (800 subjects). The study results revealed: 1) 2.6 % of the subjects had blood triglyceride> 400 mg/dl hence c-LDL-cholesterol could not be computed, 2) the correlation between c-LDL-cholesterol levels and m-LDL-cholesterol levels from both data sets was very good (r> 0.95, p < 0.001), 3) the m-LDL-cholesterol levels were usually higher than c-LDL-cholesterol levels, 4) the m-LDL-cholesterol cut-off level derivation data set showed that m-LDL-cholesterol < 87,> 143,> 188,> 233 and> 254 mg/dl were highly correlated with c-LDL-cholesterol < 100,> 100,> 130,> 160 and> 190 mg/dl respectively, 5) an application of m-LDL-cholesterol cut-off levels derived from the m-LDL-cholesterol cut-off
