Are You Insulin Resistant?

You show no insulin resistance if your Blood Code reveals:

Fasting glucose is between 75–95 mg/dL (4.2–5.3 mmol/L).
TG:HDL ratio is near 1.0, +/- 0.5.
Fasting insulin is between 3–8 uIU/mL (18–48 pmol/L).
HgbA1C level is less than 5.6% (<37 mmol/mol).
Glucose/insulin as HOMA-IR is near 1 (.5–1.5).
Your total body fat is <28% for men and <32% for women.

i agree with fasting glucose numbers, hba1c; the rest??? other factors of patient history and dx must be recognised. ie, co-morbidity- metabolism disorders and the like. your numbers are basic determinant parameters, or seem like this, however we are all are different this needs to be highlighted.

I'm only familiar with the fasting, H1c, and the HDL ratio. I'm guessing the body fat measure is the BMI? I don't think doctors order measures for insulin or insulin production for average patients. I've never had a test for that.
