TG:HDL ratio is greater than 4.
Fasting insulin is greater than 12 uIU/mL (>72 pmol/L).
HOMA-IR is greater than 3.

If guess you are wanting to talk about insulin resistance, here is a place that talks about it: www.thebloodcode.com/insulin-resistant

Many with insulin resistance are headed for diabetes! "Over 40 percent of Americans are currently insulin-resistant, and the majority will develop type 2 diabetes in their lifetime given the current trends in diet and lifestyle."

HOMA-IR explained: www.thebloodcode.com/homa-ir-calculator

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the links, Lynnwood. I'm not doctor but being insulin resistant is just another form of diabetes. Or, we can say it's a blood sugar problem.
