ApoB Percentile Calculator - The Normal Range

ApoB and heart attacks

Your ApolipoproteinB (ApoB) level is closely correlated with your risk of heart attack and stroke.

ApoB is the protein present on LDL particles. 

The lower your ApoB level, the lower your risk of heart attack and stroke.

 With this calculator, you can easily see how your ApoB compares to other people your age and sex.  

 

What are percentiles?
  • 50th centile is the average level 

  • Less than 50th centile is below average 

  • Greater than 50th centile is above average.  

Units

ApoB result is usually given in g/l or mg/dl. Please ensure you select the correct unit in the calculator. To convert them mg/dl are basically 100 times the g/l.

For example    1.01 g/l   =   101mg/dl
