Blood Sugar Converter
Blood sugar level is measured by determining the number of milligrams of glucose in a decilitre of blood(mg/dl). The normal range is between 70 and 100 mg/dl-the level most people have after fasting overnight. That's about equal to 1 teaspoon of sugar in a gallon of water.
If your blood sugar is consistently 126mg/dl or higher after fasting overnight, you have diabetes.
If your fasting blood sugar is between 101 and 125mg/dl, you have impaired glucose tolerance, more commonly known as border line diabetes or prediabetes.
There are 2 methods to calculate this: by weight, by molecular count. Weights are in grams and molecular counts in moles(a mole is 6.23*10^23 molecules).
To convert mmol/l of glucose to mg/dl, multiply by 18.
To convert mg/dl of glucose to mmol/l, divided by 18 or multiply by 0.055.
Use this calculator below to convert your blood sugar readings to either mmol/l (millimole per liter) or mg/dl (milligram per deciliter)
milligram per deciliter, the unit used in medicine to measure the concentration of substances in the blood. 1 mg/dl equals 0.01 grams per liter (g/L).
mmol/l or mmol/L
mmol/l is millimoles/liter and is the world standard unit for measuring glucose in blood. Specifically it is the designated SI(Systeme International) unit.
