The Insulin Fasting test is used to measure the amount of insulin in the blood. It is a hormone that regulates blood glucose levels. Monitoring insulin helps identify the cause of high/low blood sugar levels and detect insulin resistance, if any. If you are suffering from diabetes, this test will assist in analyzing the effects of medications and tracking the overall progress of your treatment

An intravenous blood sample is used for insulin testing, and 8 to 12 hours of fasting is recommended.

The main source of glucose is the food we consume, whereas, in the case of fasting, the liver produces and releases glucose in the bloodstream. On the other hand, insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that helps regulate blood glucose levels and transport of glucose molecules from blood to cells.

In most cases, conditions like diabetes or Insulin resistance remain asymptomatic in the early stages and may impose severe health impacts in later stages. Estimating Insulin levels helps avoid serious health problems.

Insulin resistance is an impaired response of the body cells towards insulin due to which the cells cannot easily take up glucose for energy production. Over a time, the blood sugar level gets elevated, which may eventually lead to type 2 diabetes mellitus

The functioning of insulin and glucose is intertwined in the body. Hence, we may need to consider both your insulin and blood sugar levels to diagnose the condition.
