[IP] mg/dl and mmol/L BG measurements (was: Mom feeling very bad)

Hi all,

Americans check BGs in mg/dl and Canadians (and Brits, perhaps all of
Europe--not sure) in mmol/L. To translate one reading (such as Lori's son's
1.2) into anther, either multiply or divide by 18. Ryan's 1.2 in Canada
would be 21.6. A BG of 235 in America would be 13 Canada.

Hope this helps,
