How to use the mmol/L to mg/dL calculatorConverting blood sugar from mmol/L to mg/dLConverting cholesterol from mmol/L to mg/dLHow to convert from mg/dL to mmol/LFAQs

With this mmol/L to mg/dL calculator, you can effortlessly convert between mmol/L and mg/dL, no matter what molecule you have. You just got your blood test result and want to convert glucose mmol/L to mg/dL? Or perhaps you'd like to convert cholesterol mmol/L to mg/dL? This calculator has got you covered! You can convert creatinine, calcium, and many other common substances here.

## How to use the mmol/L to mg/dL calculator

Using the mmol/L to mg/dL calculator is very easy. All you have to do is pick one of the molecules from the Molecule drop-down field, input either the mmol/L or mg/dL value, and see the result!

If you want to convert the units of a different molecule not listed in the drop-down field, click on the heading Custom molar mass. There, you can enter the customized molar mass along with either the mmol/L or mg/dL value. The mmol/L to mg/dL calculator will instantly give you the converted result.

## Converting blood sugar from mmol/L to mg/dL

To convert blood sugar from mmol/L to mg/dL, you have to:

1. Find the molar mass of glucose: 180.156 g/mol.

2. Convert the molar mass from g/mol to mg/mmol. Since both values scale down proportionally:

180.156 g/mol = 180.156 mg/mmol

3. Multiply the molar mass from the step above by the mmol/L value you've got.

4. Convert the result you got in Step 3 from mg/L to mg/dL by dividing by 10.

5. That's it! Now you know how to convert glucose mmol/L to mg/dL!

Alternatively, you can input your data and let our calculator do the work for you! Then, you can go to Omni Calculator's blood sugar converter to check whether your glucose levels are alright.

## Converting cholesterol from mmol/L to mg/dL

Converting cholesterol from mmol/L to mg/dL couldn't be easier. In fact, it is just about the same as what we did for blood sugar, only that now we use the molar mass of cholesterol (TC, LDL, HDL) instead. To calculate it, use the following equation:

cholesterol (mg/dL) = cholesterol (mmol/L) × 386.654/10

where 386.654 is the molar mass of the cholesterol in mg/mmol.

## How to convert from mg/dL to mmol/L

To convert from mg/dL to mmol/L, all you have to do is:

1. Convert from mg/dL to mg/L. To do this, multiply the mg/dL value by 10 (1L = 10 dL). For example:

0.2 mg/dL × 10 = 2 mg/L

2. Find the molar mass of the substance at hand. For the sake of this example, let's say we are talking about bilirubin, which has a molar mass of 584.66 g/mol.

3. Convert the molar mass from g/mol to mg/mmol. As both values decrease by an equal factor:

584.66 g/mol = 584.66 mg/mmol

4. Divide the value in mg/L by the molar mass in mg/mmol. In our case:

2 mg/L / 584.66 mg/mmol = 0.00034 mmol/L

5. That's it! You have now converted from mg/dL to mmol/L.

FAQs

### How do you convert from mmol/L to mg/dL?

To convert from mmol/L to mg/dL:

1. Find out the molar mass of the molecule at hand.

4. That's it! You have now converted from mmol/L to mg/dL.

### What is 6.6 mmol/L in mg/dL?

Assuming we are talking about triglycerides, 6.6 mmol/L is equivalent to 584.56 mg/dL. To find out what 6.6 mmol/L to mg/dL is:

1. Find the molar mass of the triglycerides: 885.7 mg/mmol.

2. Multiply it by 6.6 mmol/L:

6.6 mmol/L × 885.7 mg/mmol = 5,845.62 mg/L

3. Convert the units of your result by multiplying by 0.1:

5,845.62 mg/L × 0.1 ≈ 584.56 mg/dL

4. That's it!

### How do I convert 7.8 mmol/L to mg/dL?

To convert 7.8 mmol/L to mg/dL, you have to:

1. Divide the molar mass of the substance at hand by 10. Assuming we are talking about blood urea nitrogen (BUN) (28 g/mol):

28 / 10 = 2.8

2. Multiply it by 7.8:

7.8 × 2.8 = 21.84

3. Add the mg/dL unit to the end of your result: 21.84 mg/dL.

4. That's it!

### How do you convert ketones from mg/dL to mmol/L?

To convert ketones from mg/dL to mmol/L:

1. Find out which ketone you are converting: 3HB (3-β-hydroxybutyrate), acetoacetate (AcAc), or acetone (C3H6O).

2. Find the molar mass of the ketone at hand. It should be either 104.105 g/mol (3HB), 101.08 g/mol (AcAc), or 58.08 g/mol (C3H6O).

3. Divide the molar mass found by 10.
