Default The Difference Between numbers.

Could someone explain what seems to be a difference between BG numbers to me? Is this a Canadian/American difference thing?

American meters read whole numbers, like 120. Canadian meters read like 4.2. All you have to do is take your number and multiply it by 18 and then you will have an American reading.

The US measures in MG/DL or micrograms per decileter and Canadian measurements are in MMOL/L or milimoles per leter

Thanks for that. It makes more sense now.
