Blood Glucose Conversion

U.S. value = UK / Canadian value times 18 (mmol/L x 18 = mg/dl).
U.K./Canadian value = U.S. value divided by 18 (mg/dl / 18 = mmol/L).


In a person without diabetes, blood sugar is normally between
80 and 110 mg/dl.

Very useful, thanks. Being in Canada, we use mmol/L. I once told a friend in the US, a fellow diabetic, that I finally got my glucose level under 10; he asked how I could possibly still be alive when he was trying to keep it around 100. (That was when I learned they measure differently in the USA.)
