Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

creatinine level

We have recently moved from UK to Australia and the reading for creatinine levels are different. Not sure what calculation was used in UK and how to equate this to that given in Australia. The most recent creatinine level is .11 how does that equate to UK measurement? My child is renal transplant 8 years post. Many thanks

creatinine levels in Oz

Measuring creatinine:
Units in UK are called micromoles per Litre (µmol/L)
Units in Oz are called millimoles per Litre (mmol/L)

micro is 1 millionth and milli is 1 thousandth (spelling?)
therefore the difference between the two is just a factor of 1000

ie your child's creatinine of 0.11mmol/L is the same as 110 µmol/L which sounds pretty good to me!

Well done!
