Insulin test

Introduction: Insulin test

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. However, this test has limited utility because it is influenced by the various treatments of diabetes such as diabetes pills or insulin treatment, amongst other limitations. More common are the C-peptide test and various blood glucose tests.
