"mg" is the abbreviation of "milligram", which is 1/1000th of a gram. "mcg" is the abbreviation of "microgram", which is 1/1000th of a milligram. 1 g = 1 000 mg = 1 000 000 mcg 0.001 g = 1 mg = 1000 mcg 0.000001 g = 0.001 mg = 1 mcg To avoid confusion in text refering to both milligrams and micrograms, the microgram unit is often written as "µg".
