Insulin Test


Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, aids in controlling the levels of glucose (sugar) in the bloodstream. It enables cells to either utilize glucose for energy or to save it for later use. As we consume food, carbohydrates are broken down into glucose in our bodies, which then gets into the bloodstream. This leads to the pancreas releasing insulin, prompting cells to take in glucose from the blood. Individuals who have type 1 diabetes lack adequate insulin production due to their immune system attacking the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. They need either insulin injections or an insulin pump to control their blood sugar levels. Individuals with type 2 diabetes generate insulin, however, their cells gradually develop a resistance to it, resulting in high levels of blood sugar. Insulin therapy may also be necessary for controlling their blood sugar levels.
