In a study of coronary heart disease in males, their is a correlation between LDL cholesterol/ HDL cholesterol ratio & albumin(r= 0.46,p< 0.001).We then correlated the LDL cholesterol: albumin ratio( TC: Alb) with the LDL c : HDL -c ratio ( r= 0.12,p< 0.001).An excellent correlation was obtained between LDL-C : Alb ratio separated the patients with normal (<5) and increased (>5) LDL-C: HDL-C ratio better than LDL-C by itself(Amin A Nanji, Suseela Reddy et al). Patients & method: Blood samples
