How to convert blood glucose units

Common Questions and Answers about How to convert blood glucose units


10947 tn?1281404252 If you would like us to help you figure out your labs, we'd be happy to create a conversion chart or work with you to convert the numbers. Unfortunately, it's really difficult to do so if we don't know what units your lab uses. Feel free to add the units here for each of the labs that have an issue and we'll see what we can do. Thanks!
Avatar n tn Hello debsabo, As you may know we're not physicians here, but we are experienced diabetics. We volunteers are most experienced with Type 1 diabetes, and altho' there are some similarities with Type 2 we do have quite a different disease. Here is the mechanism that makes us so vulnerable to severe hypos when we've been drinking.
487621 tn?1322609697 I think the key thing we need to know is how many of the 26 typical hypo symptoms listed in this link would you say that you have currently?
Avatar m tn Certainly many of the medical establishment do not test for Reverse T3, and do not know how to treat. Those that do generally seem to agree that a good ratio would be, in your units of measure, a ratio of .018 or higher. There is some good info about this in page two of this link.
Avatar f tn High doses of vitamin D can cause of magnesium deficiency as the body uses magnesium to convert vitamin D to active vitamin D. If you are eating a diet high in magnesium you won't have issues. If you aren't...well hello magnesium deficiency symptoms. :) This can be anything from muscle twitches to constipation...the list of magnesium deficiency symptoms is ridiculously long.
Avatar n tn The carb/bolus ration determines how much insulin you get per carb. Your basal rate is what your body needs 24 hours a day to keep your blood glucose in line. From what you describe, it seems to me you need to adjust your basal rates. Are you using a pump? That is the best way to make this happen. When you get to the amounts of insulin you are using, it is just too difficult to manage with injections alone. I resisted going on the pump, but it has been a godsend.
Avatar m tn You need to know the grams of 1 mole of the molecule you pretend to convert (that it's written somewhere). I can try to find in my books (not a promisse).
304573 tn?1345577338 and an exponent). You need a calculator to convert this. You have to use the function 10x , where you have to replace x with the logarithmic number, in the above case 3.5. The result would be: 103.5 = 3162 virus equivalents per milliliter. When you take the logarithmic number from the first example, 6.24, you have to calculate 106.24 = 1730000 , and here we have the original number of virus equivalents again.
Avatar m tn I had my blood work done about a month ago and now have received a copy some of the results have me concerned first is the ESR which is 42mm Anion Gap 2meq Fasting Glucose 107 Total Billrubin 1.33mg ALT 21U/L TSH 2.46 Free T4 .
Avatar n tn If your blood sugar is so high, it means your insulin dose is too low. YOu need to increase your insulin dose. The standard way is to increase it by 2 units every 2 - 3 days until your target levels are reached. Of course better if you have medical / dr. supervision. Low carb diet, weight normalization, and daily exercise will also help reduce how much insulin you need and help in getting your blood sugars lower.
Avatar m tn mmo/l to mg/dl conversion chart for everyone excluding transplant patients and doctor allowable levels. Preprandial = before meal Postprandial = after meal mmol/l mg/dl Interpretation ------ ----- -------------- 2.0 35 Extremely low, danger of unconciousness 3.0 55 Low, marginal insulin reaction, you need to eat something 4.0 72 Slightly low, first symptoms of lethargy, etc. 5.
Avatar f tn I had my kitty in to see the Vet yesterday for a glucose/blood test after being on one week of 2 units insulin to see her progress. Her glucose was 126 ,which is good as her initial glucose was 421. Unfortunately, I did not get to see my Vet, as he was tied up in surgery, so the only contact I had was with a different Vet Tech asking a couple questions about the time of her last meal and last shot; she was then taken into another room while I waited outside.
5249831 tn?1407713726 I want to use the blood tracker but don't know how to convert my WBC from 1.7L to mcl. How do I convert it?
Avatar m tn Using the eAG [estimated Average Glucose] formula to convert the A1c to an daily glucose average equates to 148.46 mg/dl, well into diabetes land. And, having postprandial [after meal 2-3 hrs] readings over 400 mg/dl is dangerous.
Avatar m tn 4 log iu wondering if anyone knows how to convert this to a viral load I can understand?
Avatar n tn Three hours before I run, I reduce my basal rate to .15 units/hour, and my blood glucose levels are usually the EXACT same when I am finished. My blood sugar is not high before starting either. It seems like the three hour mark is right when my BG starts to go up, but by starting my run at that time, it doesn't have time to go up very much. Having the pump connected to you can be a pain in the neck ,but they are totally worth it...seriously..especially for runners.
Avatar m tn You are going to need to do basal testing to work out how much basal insulin you need. You will also need to bolus testing to work out your carb: insulin ratio. You can find information on this testing online. Also recommend the books: Using Insulin (John Walsh) and "Think Like a Pancreas'. Please do work out how to have good control. Such high blood sugars put you at risk of complications sooner than later.
384863 tn?1224749755 I was once at 230 units a day and am now down to 150, but iwth weight loss I should continue to drop. I was told by my doctor that the average person (non-diabetic) uses approximately 50 units a day. If you are still struggling with control of your blood sugars talk with your doctor about other medications that will help your body use the insulin better or if you need to be on a different type of insulin.
Avatar f tn B12 complex given. Glucose down to 144, pee a lot that night. Friday , Milo refused to walk far, started to notice weakness to his back legs. Went back for another session of Fluid Therapy at 30 ml per hour. Glucose less than 160, no insulin given. Back legs still weak, and still refusing to eat but able to consume almost 60 cc of shakes and 30 cc of smoothies using syringes to feed. Saturday morning, he just want to sleep, checked his sugar, 644 and vet gave 2 units.
Avatar m tn 0, specific gravity 1.025,250 of glucose, which makes no sense with normal serum glucose and negative for ketones, blood, nitrite and leukocyte esterase. Urine hCG was negative as well" I just dont understand. Its looking like i have more than one thing working against me.
