An editorial in our January issue (1) indicated that Journal of the American Dietetic Association was among 13 journals planning to shift to SI units in clinical chemistry and hematology. That journal has formally introduced its shift with an article by its editor, Dr. Elaine R. Monsen (2), in its March issue. The article indicates the dates for a planned three-phase shift, comments on specific units, and reproduces the conversion tables that were published in an article by Dr. Donald S. Young (3) in our January issue.
