The actual charter which led to the creation of the newsgroup in May 1993
follows. This charter was proposed by Steve Kirchoefer
<swkirch(AT)chrisco.nrl.navy.mil> and approved by a public vote of the Usenet
readership, and is the official statement of the scope and purpose of this
newsgroup.

   1. The purpose of misc.health.diabetes is to provide a forum for the
      discussion of issues pertaining to diabetes management, i.e.: diet,
      activities, medicine schedules, blood glucose control, exercise, medical
      breakthroughs, etc.  This group addresses the issues of management of
      both Type I (insulin dependent) and Type II (non-insulin dependent)
      diabetes.  Both technical discussions and general support discussions
      relevant to diabetes are welcome.

   2. Postings to misc.health.diabetes are intended to be for discussion
      purposes only, and are in no way to be construed as medical advice.
      Diabetes is a serious medical condition requiring direct supervision
      by a primary health care physician.

Many thanks. My husband has Type 2 diabetes and we were a bit concerned about his blood sugar/glucose levels because he was experiencing symptoms of hyperglyceamia. We used a glucometer which displays the reading mg/dl so in my need to know what the difference
between and mg/dl and mmol/l is, i came across your article and was so pleased to aquire a lot more info regarding blood glucose, how to read and convert it.
