    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    It is very simple. Take the international number times 18 to get American.

    Thanks for the info David!

    Multiplication? Might be very simple for you but I am "math challenged" - ha, ha. I'm afraid I'm going to wash out of math homework help when my daughter gets to 5th grade!

    Haylen that's why I use a calculator all the time. Math is not for me either.

    If you want a ballpark, and easy math, then just use 20 as the conversion factor. It's close enough and easy. So 100 mg converts to 5 mmol.
