FAQ

A postprandial insulin test measures the level of insulin after two hours of food consumption. Insulin 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 the sample should be collected 2 hours after intake of the meal.

The main source of glucose is the food we consume. However, in 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 can be potentially threatening in advanced stages. Estimating insulin level 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 time, the blood sugar level is elevated, which may eventually lead to type 2 diabetes mellitus.

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