Hi everyone,

I want to compare glucose levels across countries that have such biomarker data available - ie Bangladesh 2011, Haiti 2017, India 2016, and Namibia 2013. The problem is the glucose measurements are not standardized across different surveys.
My two most pressing questions are:

What is the unit of measurement of the two glucose variables in Haiti 2017, both of which are labeled "glucose level (percent)" ?

What is the unit of measurement of the single glucose variable in India 2016, labeled "glucose level"?

Thank you!
