Monitor your Insulin level via a simple, near painless, finger prick test which can be collected from your home.
This useful assessment will screen insulin levels following a 12-hour fast, which is a reliable way of measuring the degree of insulin resistance. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas and is used by most cells, particularly muscle and liver cells, to take in glucose for immediate conversion to energy, or to store it for future use.
In the case of insulin resistance, cells do not respond to insulin normally, and insulin levels rise above normal levels. Insulin resistance is usually associated with increasing body fat, but it can also occur in people of normal weight. When insulin resistance is present, this can also lead to frequently high blood sugar levels, which can evolve into full-blown diabetes. High insulin levels can create other metabolic disturbances that lead to changes in the blood lipid profile and high blood pressure.
