Conversion of Glucose Values from mg/dl to mmol/l

The measurement unit used for indicating the concentration of blood or plasma glucose can either have a weight dimension (mg/dl) or a molarity (mmol/l). In articles, prefer to use mmol/l. Below you find a calculator and a conversion table. The exact calculatation rule is:

mg/dl x 0.0555 = mmol/l
mmol/l x 18.0182 = mg/dl

Note that this conversion rule refers only to glucose. Other substances such as cholesterol and triglycerides must be coverted by other factors as they have other molar masses. Look at the SI Unit Table and calculator for other substances than glucose. Calculate values for blood glucose in articles exact but indicate at most two decimal places. The approximate calculation rule for conversion of mg/dl in mmol/l and vice versa is:

mg/dl divided by 18 = mmol/l
mmol/l times 18 = mg/dl
