High weight and triglycerides with low HDL point to IR. This is rough guideline.

Many path labs in Pune are doing insulin testing. Test fasting insulin and FBS. Use following formula or one mentioned by medfree to calculate IR.

Sometime back I had suggested one member type2 (screen name) for this test.

I had done insulin testing for myself last year and found that I am not insulin resistant but deficient.

Thyrocare covers it under profile - cardiac markers and under arogyam 1.4 onwards. Some other labs also have facility for these tests. Appo -A, appo B, homocysteine, hscrp etc.

For costs visit wellnessindia.co.in/

For independent tests you need to call them.

@shrisamarth,

I could not find arogyam 1.4 in their site. But I found arogyam 1.7. Could not find C-Peptide test. Under Cardiac, Could find C-Reactive protein. I assume, that is different. Will try and look further.

Thanks

On this particular site they have removed it check their main site. In their list there no mention about c-peptide test. You need to call them. But I think c- peptide is not needed. Insulin testing would be sufficient for IR measurement. C-peptide would be useful when it is hard to control BS by any means.

@shrisamarth,

@medfree,

Actually, I was looking for C-peptide test, not hsCRP. But as @shrisamarth has suggested, I think I will go in for the Insulin test currently.

Thanks

Insulin resistance means even in the presence of insulin there is no clearnce of glucose from plasma.This is beacuse of low number of insulin receptors for interaction beacuse of rhelogical reason.please fenufibre. As wwwfenufibre.com you can to supply 70 percent soluble containg material.
