Re: ug/L to mcg/L

The correct symbol for microgram is µg, but since that is very tough to type on a keyboard, you will often see it listed as ug or mcg, but both mean microgram.

The symbol l stands for liter, and the symbol dL stands for deciliter which is 0.1 liter.

microgram/liter * 0.1 = microgram/deciliter

microgram/deciliter * 10 = microgram/liter

Re: ug/L to mcg/L

Thanks for your help; that solved my problem and made it simple to read my results. I guess I still am learning something new everyday!

Re: ug/L to mcg/L

I'm hoping you can help me as well! My son's lab results show 18 nmol of mercury and the doc & lab say that the norm is 5-9. (He's 5 and weighs 37lbs). This is from a specialist. My son's pediatrician however says this is all a hoax. She says that a normal range is actually less than 10 mcg/L. How do I convert nmol to mcg/L? Do you agree with these ranges if you happen to know about mercury? I'd be SO grateful for some help. If we have to chelate we have to spend and arm and a leg. If we don't chelate maybe he's walking around toxic? I don't know which side is accurate. Thanks!

Are you talking a blood, urine, or hair test? They all seem to give different normal ranges. For blood, 10 µg/L or under seems to be normal. although 15 µg/L are acceptable for exposed workers, and actual toxic levels are much higher.

If your lab gave you results in nanomoles, it must actually include a specified volume, for example nmol/L. The molar mass of Hg is 200.6 g/mol. Therefore 10 µg/L is approximately 50 nmol/L.
10 µg/L x 1 mol/200.6g = 49.85 nmol/L

There is apparently some dubious mercury testing out there, and some test methods can exxagerate results. You may want to read this:

1 µg = 1000 ng
1 L = 1000 mL
The two factors of 1000 cancel each other out, so 42.7 ng/mL.

Re: ug/L to mcg/L

I have metallous from 2 metal on metal hip replacements/revision. '05 & 07
Lab results as follows:
Chromium, Plasma is 15.9 ug/L Chromium, 24 Urine is 12.1 ug/L
Cobalt, Plasma is 21.6 ug/L Cobalt, 24 hr Urine is 107.5 ug/L
WBC is 12.1 K/uL
In comparison with other patients with hip replacements Metal to Metal, is this high?
Thx,
Penny

Re: ug/L to mcg/L

A well functioning Metal/Metal hip replacement should have plasma chromium & Cobalt levels of 2ug/L . Yours are high
