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.

I have two machines, one mmol/l and the other mg/dl.
I measure my sugar level at the same time using the two machines. I get different figures and when I convert I don't get similar reading of the other machine eg 9.4mmol/L (127mg/dL) in the morning and 7.5mmol/L (103 mg/dL) in the evening. Please what can cause this type of discrepancy.
