Blood Sugar

The handy mmol/L to mg/dl conversion table below converts the American blood sugar measurement system of milligrams per deciliter (mg/dl) blood glucose values converted to the international standard of millimole per liter (mmol/L).

Our conversion charts below lists a broad range of easy to read mmol/L to mg/dl, as well as vice versa mg/dl to mmol/L, measurement comparisons that range in numbers from 0.1 mmol/L (1.80 mg/dL), and scale up to 900.0 mg/dL (50.000 mmol/L).

What is Blood Sugar Level?

The blood sugar level (blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level) is defined as the measurement of the amount of glucose present in the blood. Glucose is an essential source of energy, our bodies make it, but glucose mostly comes from the food we eat.

Blood Glucose Measurement Methods:

The international standard way of measuring blood glucose levels is in terms of a molar concentration, measured in mmol/L (millimoles per litre or millimolar, abbreviated mM).

In the U.S., Germany and some other countries blood sugar level concentration is measured in mg/dL (milligrams per decilitre).

  • Multiply mmol/L by the number 18.

Conversion Formula for Converting mg/dl to mmol/L:

  • Divide mg/dl by the number 18.

Difference Between Normal and Diabetic Blood Sugar Levels

If you are a diabetic, or have prediabetes, it is very important that you control your blood glucose levels as high blood sugar levels that are too high for long periods of time increase the risk of diabetes complications such as kidney disease, nerve damage, retinal disease, heart disease, stroke developing.

For the majority of healthy individuals your normal blood sugar levels should be around:

  • Between 4.0 to 5.4 mmol/L (72 - 99 mg/dL) when fasting.
  • Up to 7.8 mmol/L (140 mg/dL) 2 hours after eating.

For people with diabetes, blood sugar level targets are:

  • Before meals: 4 to 7 mmol/L for people with type 1 or type 2 diabetes.
  • After meals: under 9 mmol/L for people with type 1 diabetes
  • Under 8.5mmol/L for people with type 2 diabetes.

See our Blood Sugar Level Chart which shows low, normal, and high blood glucose measurements and what they mean.
