HbA1c - converting mmol/mol results to %
« on: 24 September 2012, 11:18:22 AM »
Now that clinics and surgeries have switched over to the providing HbA1c results in IFCC 'mmol/mol' units you might be finding it tricky to get a feel for the new units and wonder what your result would have been expressed as a percentage.

Here's a table of conversions that you can use as a ready reckoner:

New units
(mmol/mol)
 
Old units
(%)
315
375.5
426
486.5
537
597.5
648
698.5
759
809.5
8610
9110.5
9711
10211.5
10812

If you'd like to calculate your own % result exactly you can use this formula:

From mmol/mol to %
(New number/10.929)+2.15

From % to mmol/mol
(Old number-2.15)x10.929

Alternatively you can use the online calculator on the Diabetes UK website.

We get both versions at the moment. I use this one when reading here: HbA1c Units Converter - DCCT to IFCC
