This measures the actual levels of insulin in the bloodstream. High levels of insulin can indicate early stages of Type 2 diabetes and hyperinsulemia (excess insulin in the blood), where the body attempts to over-produce insulin to counteract the body's growing resistance to insulin usage.

More common are the C-peptide test and various blood glucose tests.
