LSM330DL- Scale factor problem

Hi all,
I am using accelerometer & gyrometer in LSM330DL to build my own IMU.
I want to ask about scale factor that is given in LSM330DL datasheet, it is really strange.
When I use accelerometer, FS is 01 --> scale factor is 2mg/digit. However, when sensor stands horizontally, the acceleration in z-axis is 16g !!! I realize that if value on each axis is divided by 16, the result is correct.
So, how about gyrometer? FS is 00 --> scale factor is 8.75mdps/digit. Do I need modify this scale factor (like accelerometer)?
Thank you.
