Perhaps this is something specific to the UK / Europe vs USA but I'm finding some people's references to their blood test numbers a little confusing yet it doesn't seem confusing to other readers. For example, someone reported a number of 48 for their HBA1C but I'm familiar with it being some % number like 5.6 or 9.2. Also some people reference their cholesterol readings using numbers that I can'c correlate an it makes understanding the person's post a bit harder as I don't know what reference scale they're using. Is there a resource that can translate these reported numbers for a global audience? Also, separately, I'm a little curious about the common usage of stones for weight. Since 1 stone is about 14 pounds, wouldn't it be more accurate to report in pounds?
