The Martin-Hopkins equation used to calculate low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) is more accurate than the traditional Friedewald equation, especially at higher triglyceride levels, which are more common in people with HIV (PWH). Thus, using LDL-C values calculated by the Martin-Hopkins equation may improve clinical care of PWH.
