Body Weight Calculator
Use this simple calculator to convert a body weight in pounds to a body weight in kilograms, or vise-versa.
Calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)
Your basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the number of calories used by your body when it is at rest. BMR accounts for most of your calorie use. This tool estimates your BMR based on your age, weight, and height.
Calculate Walked Off Calories
This online calculator shows you how many calories you've burned off while walking at various speeds for a set amount of time according to your weight.
Convert Blood Sugar Level Readings
This tool allows you to convert a typical United States measure of blood glucose (milligrams per deciliter, or mg/dL) to a measurement more common in European countries and countries using the metric system (millimoles per Liter, or mmol/L).
Weight, Volume & Temperature Calculators
Three of the most useful tools for cooking. Convert liquid measures (like fluid ounces, gallons and liters), weight measurements (like Kilograms and pounds) and temperature (celsius to Fahrenheit).
Convert HbA1c to Average Blood Sugar Level
A1c is a specific subtype of hemoglobin (Hb), the compound in the red blood cells that transports oxygen. This tool allows you to convert your HbA1c test results into an average blood sugar level reading like those registered from glucose meters.
Corrected Calcium Calculator
Calcium metabolism or calcium homeostasis is the mechanism by which the body maintains adequate calcium levels. Derangements of this mechanism lead to hypercalcemia or hypocalcemia, which both can have important consequences for health.
Convert Whole-Blood Readings to Plasma Readings
Some blood testing meters measure the glucose level of whole blood while others report the glucose levels only of plasma, which is the fluid part of the blood. You can use this online converter to translate whole-blood test results into plasma results, and to translate plasma results into whole-blood results.
