Questions and answers on how to convert things from one unit or system to another

## Forum rules

Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

You'll need to know the molecular value of the item you're trying to convert.

What is the value of 200 mg/dl in mmol/L.

1 mmol/l = 18 mg/dl
do the math
good luck

molecular weight is 23 e.g. Na

multiply by 18
for example:
If somebody's blood glucose is 5.0 mmol/L
then 5.0*18= 90 mg/dl

how i convert millimole to grams

Sun May 18, 2008 11:20 pm

I get it...
so 1 mg/dL= 18 mmol/L
but the last time i went onto this page, it said 18 mg/dL= 1 mmol/L!!!
I don't know...

For GLUCOSE, 1 mmol/L = 18 mg/dL, but two conversions are being mixed together:

*Glucose has a molecular weight of 180 or molar mass of 180 g/mol. This has to be calculated for each compound.
*10 dL = 1 L

So 1mmol/L of glucose = 180 mg/L = 18 mg/dL

I have 104 mmo/L of Chloride and 2.8 mg/dL of Phosphorus.

I need to know the Chloride to Phosphorus ratio

Ivan.
mmol/l = mg/100ml x 10/ molecular mass
mmol/l = 200 x 10 / mm ( )

multiply the mg/dl by .o55 will equal the millimols]

IT DEPENDS ON THE SUBSTANCES MOLECULAR WEIGHT... HOWEVER USE THESE CONVERSION FACTOR FOR GLUCOSE.. 18 .. MMMOL\L TO MG\DL

1% HbA1C = 1.9 mmol/L = 35 mg/dL

I hope this piece of information is usefull to everyone here
Thanks
Good Luck

To convert mmol/l of glucose to mg/dl, multiply by 18.

To convert mg/dl of glucose to mmol/l, divide by 18 or multiply by 0.055

Thanks

My question is how to convert mmol/L to Mg/dl when figureing out Potassium and other electrolytes?

Sat Jun 02, 2012 1:06 am

multiply by 18
for example:
If somebody's blood glucose is 5.0 mmol/L
then 5.0*18= 90 mg/dl
