How to convert mmol/l to mg/dl

How to convert mmol/L to mg/dL? 
Is there any converter for easier understanding of diabetes blood sugar readings?    What about any A1C test converter?

I know that you keep reading thousands of articles on diabetes.

And of course, you keep measuring your blood sugar levels by a meter which is not using the measurement system that you are used to.

So, you may face some difficulties while converting mmol/l to mg/dl or mg/dl to mmol/l. But you need to face them in to understand what is happening to your body. 

Measurement systems for blood sugar levels

There are two measurement systems for blood sugar levels.

The first one is the world standard and the second one is the US standard. The world standard uses mmol/l, while the US standard uses mg/dl. It's a matter of where you live, and meters they use.

Now, if you want to convert mg/dl of glucose to mmol/l, you can divide the result in mg/dl by 18 or multiply by 0.055.

But, if you want to convert mmol/l of glucose to mg/dl, just multiply by 18.

In case you need more details, below I’m showing you an interpretation of the numbers for each of the measurement systems.
