6.8 is the equivalent of 122 in US measurements. That's not bad for the morning, it should be a little lower 80-120 is my goal for first thing in the morning. So you're close!!

To convert mmol/l of glucose to mg/dl, multiply by 18.

To convert mg/dl of glucose to mmol/l, divide by 18 or multiply by 0.055.

Example: My sugar before supper was 89 tonight. So 89 x 0.055 = 4.9
