Insulin Blood Test
We need insulin daily to survive as without it, glucose cannot reach the body’s cells causing the cells to starve and blood glucose levels rise to dangerous levels.One of insulins main roles is to remove sugar from the blood and store it in the cells for future energy use. Raised insulin levels can be a sign of insulin resistance which occurs when the cells fail to respond to the normal actions of insulin. Insulin resistance often remains undetected but can be a sign of type 2 diabetes.
This test measures the level of insulin in the blood after fasting overnight.
