Conversion Chart for Blood Sugar Levels: mg/dL to mmol/L

Here is a simple that you can use for reading your diabetes blood test results. This table is meant for fasting blood glucose, ie. readings taken after fasting for a minimum of 8 hours.

*** 18 mg/dL of blood glucose = 1 mmol/L of blood glucose

Note that in Canada, there's a higher allowable reading for a normal fasting blood sugar level. A fasting blood glucose reading of 6.1 mmol/L (110 mg/dl) or less is considered normal. The pre-diabetic range is more than 6.1 mmol/L to 6.9 mmol/L (> 110 mg/dl to 125 mg/dl).
