insulin level, but no glucose tested?
Insulin level changes per your gut contense, I never knew they tested it.
Oh - I was assuming glucose....
I googled it:
"Proper Insulin Levels
Excessive amounts of insulin are associated with excess amounts of glucose in the system. High levels of insulin are known to cause weight gain, water bloating, high blood pressure, magnesium deficiency and an increase in the amount of inflammatory compounds in the blood, which causes blood clots and blood vessel damage. The ideal amount of insulin is under 10 IU/mL. Any level above 10 IU/mL means that the patient should reduce the amount of food stimulating excess insulin production, according to the National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse.
Measuring Insulin and Glucose Levels
A patient’s insulin level can be measured by asking a health provider or laboratory for a fasting insulin test, according to Lab Tests Online. This involves analyzing a blood sample that is taken after the patient has fasted for at least eight hours. Glucose levels can be measured easily using a home blood sugar test kit. These kits require a small amount of blood to be placed on a sampling strip, usually obtained by pricking a finger with a sterilized lancet. The strip is placed into a measuring device that displays the blood glucose level."
Looks like a different unit of measure than what Raleighgirlie's lab used.
