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.

Many years ago, I was informed that a good way to eyeball insulin resistance is to observe a man's gut. A lot of us guys are not over all obese, having even skinny- or at least not "fat", legs, butt, arms. But we do have this big old basketball - or spare tire- around our middle. The classic bee gut, or looking like we are 9 months pregnant. I was told that- depending on the vastness of the gut- almost always correlated with tose lab #s that indicate insulin resistance and/or metabolic syndrome.

Any one else think that is true? Or not?

I haven't heard that. I thought they drank too much beer. (I'm serious.)

Well, it is certainly called a beer belly. But I know plenty of guys with a beer belly who drink little to no beer. Most of them still get plenty of non-fibrous carb(net carb), however, from non-beer sources.

I think it may also be metabolic syndrome in some cases. Of course there might be other 'conditions' but very often there is a cluster of conditions that include diabetes and thyroid with being overweight. I believe this is also genetic and if it's identified early it could be controlled. /www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/metabolic-syndrome/symptoms-causes/syc-20351916
