Serum Insulin Fasting

The insulin fasting test analyses insulin levels in the blood after an 8-hour fast. Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreatic beta cells that helps regulate blood glucose levels.

Your doctor may suggest this test if you have frequent urination, hunger, or thirst. Over time, high fasting insulin levels can be a sign of type 1. A higher risk of heart disease, dementia, and cancer is linked to insulin resistance.
