Cholesterol lowering medication is saving lives, but there are times when patients or medical professionals would need to know the patient’s unmedicated cholesterol level. Building on recently published research, this app does exactly that. Using this utility is simple: the patient’s current LDL cholesterol is entered, then their particular set of cholesterol lowering medication(s) is selected and then the patients approximate “true” cholesterol is displayed.
