    It depends on what the substance is. Is this for glucose?

    Hello, nightmare

    To convert mmol/l of glucose to mg/dl, multiply by 18.

    Example: 4 mmol/l x 18 = 72 mg/dl


    To convert mg/dl of glucose to mmol/l, divide by 18.

    Example: 125 mg/dl / 18 = 6.94 mmol/l

    Here is a glucose converting site:
