Insulin Resistance Panel for Male and Female


Test for Insulin Resistancein Logan, UT

At Cache Valley Labs Direct, we offer panels that offer insights into common ailments among the populations. One such ailment is insulin resistance, which plagues an increasing number of people in our society. The insulin resistance panel provides information about blood glucose, insulin levels, and lipids, all of which can show how the body is processing fats and sugars.

The Insulin Resistance Panel for Males and Females includes: 

  • Glucose

    Testing blood glucose gives a value that shows whether blood sugars are in a healthy range. Blood sugar levels can indicate whether a patient is diabetic or pre-diabetic, and can check whether a patient’s body is processing food properly. 

  • Insulin, Fasting

    Fasting insulin levels can indicate whether insulin resistance or diabetes has developed. Insulin is the protein that helps cells in the body take in sugars to use as energy. 

  • Lipid Panel w/ Diabetes Risk Index

    The lipid panel test measures high-density lipoprotein (HDL), low-density lipoprotein (LDL), total cholesterol, and triglycerides. These are the lipids, or fats, in your blood.
    A diabetes risk index helps predict the risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes. 

Cost of labs if purchased separately: $107.00 Cost of panel: $71.64
