Understanding Insulin Fasting in Asansol


What is Insulin Fasting in Asansol?

An Insulin Fasting test measures the insulin level after fasting for 8-12 hours. This standard blood test is available at an affordable price in Asansol with Tata 1mg labs. Insulin is a hormone secreted by the beta cells of the pancreas and helps maintain normal blood glucose levels. Deranged fasting insulin levels may indicate type 1 or type 2 diabetes.

Your doctor may suggest an Insulin Fasting test if you experience symptoms such as frequent urination, increased thirst and hunger, weakness, weight changes, heart rate changes, poor healing ability, tingling or numbness in the hand and legs, etc. Additionally, this test also helps to assess the response to insulin treatments.

What does Insulin Fasting measure?

An Insulin Fasting test evaluates the body's ability to regulate blood sugar levels by measuring the amount of insulin in the blood after an overnight fast. Glucose is a source of energy for the body to perform daily activities. Your body gets glucose from carbohydrates that are consumed in the diet. These carbohydrates are digested and converted into simple sugar (glucose). The cells then absorb the required amount of glucose to produce energy, and the remaining amount is stored in other forms, like fats. Insulin hormone helps the cells to uptake glucose from the blood for utilization and storage. Thus, it is necessary to maintain insulin levels in your body.
