    Default Nuchal blood results - converting U/L to MoM help!

    Does anyone know how to convert;

    30.6 U/L into MoM and 0.56 U/L into MoM?

    Cant find a conversion calculator.

    I *think* that without access to the lab's database it's virtually impossible to convert easily - hence no calculators online.

    To find a median to then work out the multiples, you have to look at women of the same age, weight, height, and at the same period of gestation (and no doubt a myriad of other factors!). So everyone's median is different, hence the conversion will be as well.

    Can you ring your lab or ob and ask if they can give the figures to you in MoM terms? Don't they know we like to google these things?!

    There is a calculator on line where you put in your results and it gives you the risk rating but the site is down at the moment. I have asked my ob about the results and for a copy of my previous results. From what I can make out the Papp-a and the hcg are ok. But if it is just my bloods that happen to give me a high risk as was the case last time I am not sure I will proceed with the cvs this time. It seems many get a high risk just from the bloods when the scan is fine and they get the all clear after having cvs. Makes you wonder how accurate the bloods are!

    Yes the blood results can be a bit rogue.

    Have you considered the NIPT instead of a CVS if your blood results do affect your overall risk result?

    It's not diagnostic like a CVS but it does give you a more definite answer than the combined NT result and it's not invasive so doesn't have a risk of miscarriage.
