Details In the field of blood glucose, the unit mmol/L (millimole per litre) is used to express the concentration of glucose in the blood. It indicates the amount of glucose (a type of sugar) present in a specific volume (one litre) of blood. This unit is commonly used to measure blood sugar levels in various countries, such as the UK, Canada, and Australia.

Blood glucose monitoring is crucial for people with diabetes to ensure their blood sugar levels are within a healthy range. A normal blood glucose level range is typically between 4.0 to 5.4 mmol/L when fasting and up to 7.8 mmol/L after meals. However, the ideal range may vary depending on an individual's age, medical conditions, and specific needs. Regular monitoring of blood glucose levels helps individuals with diabetes manage their condition, adjust treatment plans, and prevent complications.
