    In Canada where I live - we use the same standard as the UK - but living next to the USA - a lot of American Measurements often creep in, doesn't matter if its weight, distance or any other kind of measurement. There's much to be said for those Conversion Apps that can be found on the Internet,

    The problem with blood test results, is that you can't just convert based on the units, as the conversion factor between mol/l and dl/l is different for each test.
