Jim, you can change your meter to read in mmol/L (instead of mg/dL) which is what most other countries use, but that system does not equal the A1c. For example, an A1c of 6.0 = 7.0 mmol/L. Look up at the sticky Diabetes Resources. There is a post there with the blood sugar conversion and also a link to a site that will convert readings for you.
