Abstract

Reference intervals of total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol and non-HDL cholesterol concentrations were determined on 309 blood donors from an urban and peri-urban population of Botswana. Using non-parametric methods to establish 2.5th and 97.5th percentiles of the distribution, the intervals were: total cholesterol 2.16 - 5.52 mmol/l; non-HDL cholesterol 1.22 - 4.48 mmol/l; and HDL cholesterol 0.67 - 1.65 mmol/l and 0.59 - 1.59 mmol/l for females and males, respectively.
