Measurements

Glucose

Conventional unit: mg/dL
Conversion factor: 0.0555
SI Units: mmol/L
Definition: A simple sugar that is a major energy source for all cellular and bodily functions. Glucose is obtained through the metabolism of food in the digestive system.
Usefulness: Abnormally high or low levels of glucose in the blood often indicate metabolic disturbances (e.g., diabetes).
