   menstrual bleeding, asthma, atherosclerosis, bruises, diabetic
   retinopathies, dry skin, edemas, excessive blood sugar, fatigue, hay fever,
   heart attacks due to vascular accidents, hemorrhoids, inflamed tissue,
   internal bleeding, jet lag, kidney disease, menstrual cramps, phlebitis,
   poor circulation, skin elasticity, strokes due to cerebral accidents,
   stress, ulcers, varicose veins, multiple sclerosis, prostate problems,
   sleep disorders, dog and horse cancers, attention deficit disorders, and

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.
