Today I had a new patient from Australia, she came in with a few years worth of laboratory results all in SI units.
I knew how to convert mmol/L of creatinine to mg/dl: divide by 88. But converting mmoles/L of urea to BUN? No idea. Converting nmol/L of vitamin D to ng/ml? Stumped.
Thank the maker for Dr. Google.
- To convert from creatinine mmol/L to mg/dL divide by 88
- To convert from mmol/l Urea to mg/dL BUN multiply by 2.8
- To convert nmol/L 25 OH Vitamin D to ng/ml divide by 2.496
- To convert mmol of creatinine to mg of creatinine (needed to interpret a 24-hour urine) multiply by the molecular weight, 113
