Units per litre (U/L)

The results of some medical tests are reported in units per litre (U/L).

  • A unit is an arbitrary amount agreed upon by scientists and doctors.
  • A litre is a measure of volume that is slightly larger than a quart.
  • A kilo unit is one thousand units. It is written kU/L. Some medical tests are reported using this standard international unit (SI unit).
