Tools for Diabetes Control > Converting mg/dL to mmol/L

Once you know the essentials about diabetes, the reality of daily living sets in. You may find yourself wondering, what am I going to do? How am I going to manage? How can I support the person I care about who has this disease?

Whether you use milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL) or millimoles per Liter (mmol/L) probably depends on what country you live in. If you live in the United States, the standard measurement for blood glucose levels is mg/dL. Countries where the metric system is standard use mmol/L.
