Milli-International Units per Liter (mIU/L)

Some medical tests report results in milli-international units per liter (mIU/L).

  • An international unit is an amount of a substance agreed upon by scientists and doctors. A milli-international unit is one-thousandth of an international unit.
  • A liter measures fluid volume. It is a little bigger than a quart.
