Numbers Conversion

I find this board really interesting but I don't understand the American glucose numbers 150,160 ect.......in the UK our numbers go from about 0 to 30, with 4.0 been the the lowest number before you start feeling hypo and ideally no more than 9,10.0, 2 hours after eating.

Could someone be kind enough to educate me please.

4.0=
5.0=
6.0=
7.0=
8.0=
9.0=
10.0=
15.0=

Hi,

If you multiply your numbers by 18, you'll get the numbers we use in the U.S. Hope that helps you.

Re: Numbers Conversion

Wow, that was a lot of work, Lilbit. That was really nice of you, but I think the poster was asking to convert mmol into the mg/l that are used to measure glucose in the US, and not the a1c.

I understand that there is a movement now that will have the a1c no longer presented as a %, but as an actual average glucose level, so there will be less confusion. I think that will help a lot of docs as well.
