Grams Per Deciliter (g/dL)

Some medical tests report results in grams (g) per deciliter (dL).

  • A gram is equal to the weight of one milliliter or 16 drops of water. It is about 1/30 of an ounce.
  • A deciliter measures fluid volume equal to 1/10 of a liter. A liter is a little bigger than a quart of fluid.
